As the saying goes, many hands make for light work! The 2019-2020 school year is right around the corner and we have a ton of great community building and fundraising events on the calendar! Please consider joining or chairing a committee (or two) for the school year. This is a tremendous opportunity to make an impact at DWES and make some new friends along the way. Please note that all dates are tentative and subject to change prior to the calendar being approved and finalized during the summer of 2019. The PTO and all of it’s functions are supported by volunteers like you who give their time to bring our community together for a good cause. Without your support our calendar of events could be affected. If you have any questions about what an event is all about or what the commitment will be, please send us a message at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Teacher Appreciation Week is here. See flyer for the list of events per day.
