What Does The PTO Do?

The PTO (Parent/Teacher Organization) works together with Douglas Elementary to do all the “extra” things for our students. Our annual fundraiser helps pay for field trips, books for the classrooms & library, teacher classroom supplies, school supply & healthy snack closet, playground equipment, school garden, swimming lessons, the Kid’s Big Idea program, concerts/visiting artists/recitals, screen-free week, teacher appreciation week, holiday staff appreciation, holiday workshop, field day, 5th grade eloquence day, our welcome open house, & more!

The PTO is responsible for fundraising to provide all these programs, as well as volunteering time and effort to make them happen. To be a member of our PTO, attend our meetings and/or follow this blog. No fee is required to be a member, although you must have a student at DES.

All are welcome and encouraged to join. We believe in a welcoming environment where suggestions and ideas are welcomed and help is always needed!
