Volunteer to be a Secret Pal at Dealey
Do you want to get involved at Dealey, but don't have a lot of time?
We have the perfect volunteer opportunity for you - become a Secret Pal! 

The Secret Pal program is a fun and easy way to connect with the Dealey community, and a great way to put a smile on someone's face! A Secret Pal chooses a staff member to send an anonymous, small gift each month based on their list of "favorite things". It doesn't have to be expensive, just thoughtful! This is one small way our staff can be reminded of how much we appreciate all the great work they do. Secret Pals stay anonymous until the reveal party in May when you finally get to reveal your identity!

For more information please email Lindsey Haley at to arrange your Secret Pal staff member assignment. Our goal is to have a Secret Pal for every teacher and staff member who wants to participate. Spots go fast so sign up soon!
