PTO Sponsored Programs

Many programs at the school are PTO sponsored or co-sponsored by the PTO in cooperation with Davidsonville Elementary School.
Some events and programs could not exist without the financial and volunteer support of the DES Parent Teacher Organization.
It is amazing what we can achieve when staff, volunteers, parents, and students all work together.
It’s a busy year, so keep checking the online calendar of events and read your PTO Blast e-mails for updates.

Your child and you may enjoy many of the special events provided by the PTO.

  • Back To School Night
