At January’s PTO Meeting, attendees voted unanimously to allocate over $3,400 for the maintenance and repair of some of the current classroom sound systems! Thanks to the fundraising efforts of the PTO and your support, we were able to take this item off the list of possible budget cuts proposed at the school board meeting.  Our teachers say that these are an invaluable tool for the classroom, and your PTO dollars are making a difference to ensure that they have them!  Thank you!


scholastic-booksSpring Scholastic Book Fair!

Visit our DES Book Fair March 25-April 4 in the Common Area every day and during the Easter Bunny  Breakfast!

Scholastic Book Fairs’ team of book experts – former educators, booksellers, and Book Fair veterans – reviews thousands of titles from hundreds of publishers each year, and every Scholastic Book Fair offers a new assortment of books for the fall and spring seasons and consistently includes the latest award-winners and most popular books, often in exclusive Book Fair-only editions.

At the end of the Fair, our school is awarded either a percentage of the revenue or books and educational materials. Scholastic Book Fairs helps generate more than $175 million in fundraising for school projects and classroom materials around the country.
