PTO Volunteer Opportunities

The DES PTO is known for the countless volunteer hours that our members provide for school activities. We all work together to give our children the very best elementary school experience possible. We can’t do all the wonderful things we want to do without your help.

Please visit the Volunteer Job Descriptions page on this site to read a bit about the wide variety of volunteer positions available and decide if you are willing to take on a job (or two).

For the 2022-2023  School Year, you can sign online by filling out the form by clicking here.
Sign up for as many roles as you want, and please consider stepping up to serve as a committee chair; we have many vacancies to be filled. For many programs, if we don’t get a volunteer to lead them, we may have to cancel them.
