We are Thankful

The PTO Board at Davidsonville Elementary often says “Thanks.”
Yet, it never feels like enough.

We are thankful that you choose to work with us, to share with us, and trust us.
We are grateful that we can all make these magical years more amazing for our children.
We are appreciative that we work with an active parent group with folks that show up, give often, and roll up their sleeves to get things done.
We are so full of praise for the teachers & staff who join us as members and help us throughout the year – like the team that we should be.

It’s not as common as you might think. In fact, it’s downright rare in some places.

So, in case nobody’s said it to you lately:

Sign Up for some programs & clubs!

Fall is the best time to sign up your student for something new, or something familiar. There are SO many programs and clubs offered at DES – there’s sure to be something for everyone. And if cost is a problem, reach out to the PTO Board or school counselor. There is some help available in many cases.

Art, Dance, Chorus, School Play, Lego League, Chess, Coding, Engineering, Green School, Newspaper, Martial Arts, Yoga, Spanish, Cooking & more.

If there’s something you’d like to see at DES, let the PTO know by filling out the Contact Us form on this site.

Sneak-A-Peek & Stay and Play

August 29th
Alrighty… let’s get our Gators ready to go!

All students and their parents are invited to come and meet the teacher at the Sneak-A-Peek event on Thursday, August 29th, 2019 from 9-10 am at DES. Students can visit their classrooms, drop off their school supplies, and say “hello” to their new teacher. It’s only an hour, and the staff needs to get back to work so doors close at 10 a.m. sharp.

Stick around for a Stay & Play from 10-11:30 a.m. at the playground in the front of the school. The PTO will have volunteers with ice-pops to hand out to all! It’s a great chance to make a new friend and reach out to other parents and students in your classes.

Sneak-A-Peek: 9-10
Stay & Play: 10-11:30
