In Recognition
Volunteers of the Month for February:
Stephanie Brooks & Jill Adams
The DES PTO has selected Stephanie Brooks and Jill Adams as Volunteers of the Month for February. The school yearbook is quite an ongoing project and these two special DES volunteers have taken on the task for a second year now, as well as jumping in to help all over the place. The PTO thanks them for their dedication to the students and to Davidsonville Elementary School. We asked them to write a little bit about themselves, so let’s get to know them:

Stephanie Brooks
My husband Andy and I have lived in Davidsonville for 8 years with our two daughters Greta (6th grade) and Olivia (1st grade). I started volunteering at DES when my oldest was in Kindergarten by helping with the teacher luncheon committee. I have been class mom for the past 6 years. You can find me helping at most school functions, such as parties, field trips, guest reader, Polar Express, Field Day, and any other school function they may have. The last two years, Jill and I have been the co-chairs for the yearbook. And last year, I saw they were looking for substitute teachers, so I have added that to my list. I love being involved at the school, getting to know so many of the kids, and helping where it is needed.

Jill Adams
I grew up in Davidsonville and attended Davidsonville Elementary myself as a child.  My husband John and I have lived in Davidsonville for 16 years together. We have three children, Ryleigh (12), Hailey (9) and Johnny (6).
I love being able to help out at the school in any way that I can.  I am always willing to go on a field trip, help with room parent duties and copy for teachers.  For the last two years, I have co-chaired the school yearbook.  I really enjoy being able to put together memories of our wonderful school!  

Public Service Announcements:

 Did you take the survey yet?
