October 2021

Thank you!

This school year has been amazing so far!  We can’t thank our volunteers, members, and sponsors enough for everything they’ve done to support DSE students, families, and staff!  We know your time is valuable and some weeks are busier than others.  Your membership means that you support what PTA is doing and we appreciate you!  The more support we have, the bigger our voice when it comes to state and national issues.  Is your spouse a member?  Grandparents?  PTA is for everyone because everyone can back the future! Join today.
Bonus!  Members that join before 10/24 will be entered into a drawing for a $50 gift card to Starrs on Mercer!

Our fall fair is happening!  Thank you for the donations for class baskets.  They look incredible!!  We will draw class basket tickets at Octoberfest this Saturday right after the silent auction ends at 5:30.
Pick up your pre-paid tickets Friday morning 7:15-8 am or during the event on Saturday.  You can also purchase tickets, wristbands, and basket tickets during the event.
Please sign up for 30 minutes to help during the event.
New!  We’ll have a Trunk or Treat!  PTA provides the candy and all you have to do is decorate your trunk and pass out candy from 3-4 pm.  There are still a few parking spots left if you want to sign up.
Cake Walk is a popular booth and we need YOUR help to make it a success! Each class is asked to donate 4-6 cakes, cupcakes, or batches of cookies. Homemade or store-bought items accepted!  We also have a student baking contest! 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners per grade! If your student is interested in participating in the cake contest, please label the bottom of the container with student’s name, teacher’s name, and house color and turn in by 9 am on 10/22.  Other cake walk donations can be turned in on 10/22 until 2 pm.
Requirements: Bring your item in a disposable container. Items cannot be made with any alcohol. Items must not require refrigeration. If your item has nuts, is gluten free… please label it on top of your container.
We’ve had such a great turnout at Mileage Team!  The students are having fun, getting exercise, and earning tokens. Parents/staff are welcome to run too!
PK-1st grade must have a parent or older sibling with them.  Join us this Friday at 7 am!
Some staff areas inside the school need a little pick me up.  Can you help by purchasing an item from their wish list?  Staff Lounge/Workroom Wish List and Collaborative Learning Space Wish List
