PTO Sponsored Clubs

There’s something for everyone at DES! If the PTO doesn’t sponsor an activity you are interested in, chances are the school itself offers one.
Whether it’s dancing, singing, chess, gardening, running, jumping, charity work, learning a new language, learning about your world, or spelling – you will find others who share the same interests.

Visit our online club pages to learn more about each group. And watch for events and sign-ups on the calendar and in the PTO Blast e-mails.
