Playdate and Sneak-A-Peek Thursday

Meet the teacher, then play!

You’re already coming to DES for the chance to meet your new teacher right? Great. That’s from 2 to 3 pm for 1st thru 5th graders.

And directly following that, it’s a schoolwide playdate on the front playground for all grades. From 3-4:30, your kids are welcome to play (with an adult chaperone along with them) and meet new friends and classmates.
The PTO will be on hand with ice pops and water.
Join the school spirit and get ready for another great year at DES!

Playdate cancelled today due to weather

Unfortunately, the play date is canceled for today, Tuesday, Aug. 29th, because of the rain. We are looking at options for rescheduling and will post an update on FB and here on the website once a decision has been made.

If you haven’t followed the DES PTO Facebook page, you should. It’s a great way to find out latebreaking news.

Sign up for the Gator Blast

Gator Blast=News you need to know.

From Crazy Sock Days to registration deadlines for clubs and events, the Gator Blast is THE best source
of information for families with students at DES.

Find out almost everything that’s going on at Davidsonville Elementary School by signing up for the Gator Blast e-mail distribution list. A volunteer from the DES PTO prepares an e-mail newsletter each week for Sunday evening distribution.

Sometimes we send an e-mail on Wednesdays too, called the Mid-Week Gator Blast. And once in a while, you’ll get special e-mails from the PTO President and others with late-breaking reminders and information.

Your weekly Blast will often contain attachments for forms, registration information, event fliers, and many other things going on at the school.

Since Davidsonville Elementary is a Green School, the entire school tries very hard to curtail the use of paper forms sent home each week with students. Join us in the effort by signing up for the Gator Blast today!

If you’d like to sign up for the e-mail version of the weekly Gator Blast E-mail, you can fill out the form on this site and submit it online. It’s easy!

Visit this link for the online sign-up form

Take a look around and hear a bit about how things work. If you haven’t yet visited the school, this is your chance to see what it all looks like in there.


August 31st:

Sneak A Peek event held at DES, from 2-3 pm. All students are invited to come and meet their new teachers, see their new classrooms, and drop off some school supplies.

Just a summer update


We didn’t mean to drop the website and run towards summer vacation, but, gosh, we did!

Hope you are all enjoying your summer and we welcome all of our new families who are visiting the site.
Take a look around, explore how things work a bit.
We will be starting to update the site as new information becomes available for this school year.

The 2017/2018 school year begins on Tuesday, Sept. 5th.
The new school hours are: 9:30-3:55.
Bus schedules will be posted on the aacps.org website as the start of school approaches.

The Sneak-A-Peek event where all students (except Kindergartners) meet their new teachers will be held on August 31st.
It’s a very short event and full of friends saying hi, so we’ll let you know what time it’s at when we know.

And finally, welcome to our new Principal, Ms. Colleen Harris.
We all look forward to getting to know you very soon.

The PTO Board is already getting started making plans and getting organized.
We can’t wait for another exciting school year at Davidsonville Elementary to get started.
