Who are Watch DOGS? Fathers, grandfathers, step-fathers, uncles, and other father figures who volunteer to serve at least one day a year in a variety of school activities as assigned by the school principal or other administrator.

There are still open spots for Watch D.O.G.S in April and May!  Our goal is to have 1 to 2 Watch D.O.G.S. on campus each day this year.
Look here to sign up.

Next week is a 4-day week, enjoy your long weekend and remember no school on Friday, April 14th. 

Current 3rd- 5th students will spend the last day of school at Dripping Springs Middle School for field day!  Parents are encouraged to help and volunteer for this fun, last day of school activity.


Join us at the next PTA General Meeting, April 21st at 8AM.  We will be looking towards 2017-2018 and talking about the many ways to get involved in the PTA next year.   This meeting is for all parents, even those headed to Sycamore Springs Elementary next year.

The 2017-2018 PTA Board will be voted in during this meeting.  We are also happy to help answer any questions about open chair positions for next year.  Here are a few of the ways you can serve DSES next year.

Financial Reconciliation – We need 2 volunteers to review the PTA finances.  This should occur sometime between mid-July to mid-August and then this job is done!  Our treasurer will sit with you to help answer any questions and make sure we are ready to start the 2017-2018 school year before the first day of school!  Contact treasurer@dsepta.org if you’d like to serve on this important task!

Other volunteer chair positions open for next year include these.  You can find more information on our website, www.dsepta.org/get-involved.   Help us make 2017-2018 as fun and enriching for our kids as this year, contact volunteers@dsepta.org if you’re interested.
