Help make every child's potential a reality by engaging and advocating for all children.

Why Join the PTA?

The number one reason to join the DCES PTA is to benefit your child. In doing so, you also help the school.

As a not-for-profit organization, the PTA looks to you – the parents and friends of Deer Crossing Elementary – to provide that “extra measure” of support to advance its mission of being a voice for all students, a resource to families and the community, and to advocate for the education and well-being of every child.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I have to Volunteer?

No. The DCES PTA encourages parents and community involvement to support our children in their academic and social education; however, becoming a member of the PTA does NOT mean that you must commit to volunteer hours or attend every meeting.

How do I get a Directory?

PTA members have access to the student directory in MemberHub (which comes in handy for planning play dates, contacting school friends, and teachers). Also included in the directory are staff email addresses, PTA Committee listings for volunteering, and helpful school district phone numbers.

Donations to the DCES PTA are always accepted!

They are tax deductible and go directly to PTA annual projects. If every DCES family made a one-time donation of $50.00 or more, our budget would be fully funded.
