DSE PTA February Newsletter


Hello DSE Families,

We’re excited to announce that DSE is participating in the Apex Leadership Program in March. Apex is a local company and will be on campus for 2 weeks teaching our students about leadership and fitness. Students will also be challenged to get pledges for the laps they will run at our Apex Fun Run on March 12.  More info will be coming home soon. Game On!

The Cool Cat Cash Store is March 10 and 11.  Donations can be dropped off at the DSE front office.  Toys, sports equipment, stuffed animals, books, journals, hats…. There is a kid at DSE that will love what you donate!  Thank you for supporting the store and PTA.

Don’t forget to order your student’s yearbook!  The price is currently $25 and will increase on 2/28.

  • Name stamping option available until 2/28
  • Dedications can be submitted until 3/31

The new long sleeve shirts are selling fast!  Support our local DS Tigers and purchase one from the DSE PTA Online Shop.

The next PTA meeting is February 27 at 8 am in the CL&I. Planning for the 2020-2021 school year is starting and we’d love to hear your ideas.  Please join us!

Your child spends a lot of time at DSE.  As a parent, it’s so rewarding to share some of the school experiences with them and see our children in their educational world. 

The PTA plans, organizes, and staffs dozens of activities each year and we need volunteers to continue offering the variety of programs for the students and staff.  An hour or two from you really does make a difference!

Is there one event that you’d like to help plan or an activity that your child participates in each year?  Can you be available to teachers by email to provide science lab materials?  Is September a better month than March?  With so many enrichment programs provided by DSE PTA something will fit your schedule.
