• What does the PTA do?

    Each year the PTA improves our children’s’ educational experience and strengthens our school community. Our efforts benefit every student at the school. The PTA use money from school-wide fundraisers to:


    •      Pay for field trips
    •      Pay for technology upgrades across campus 
    •      Improve student literacy through reading software subscriptions and new library book purchases
    •      Fund a “classroom resource budget” for each teacher
    •      Host the Fall Carnival, Arts Night, All Daughters Dance, All Sons Bingo, and other events!
    •      Fund student assemblies and much more!


    How does the PTA provide this funding? 

    There are two major fundraisers during the school year, and several smaller fundraising opportunities as well.

    •  Fat Cat Cookie Dough Fundraiser
    •  Jog-A-Thon
    •  Smaller fundraisers include: DPM Restaurant Nights, Amazon Smile, and others. 


    How do I support the PTA’s efforts?

    Your family’s support of these fundraisers is necessary. Without it many of the school’s resources, events and activities would disappear. In addition to participating in these fundraisers, you can support us by volunteering to help! The fundraisers, events and activities don’t run themselves. – in fact they are a lot of work - and We need a team of parents to make them successful. Joining the PTA is the first step, volunteering to assist with a fundraiser or event is the next step! Volunteer opportunities will be regularly communicated during the year via PTA meetings and other means. 

    We are looking forward to another exciting year, filled with fun family events that bring our community closer and support our children’s education.   

    The PTA is committed to continuing to fund resources, and host events. Family involvement is key. Join the PTA – support the fundraisers – and volunteer your time, so that Del Paso Manor Elementary School can continue to be a strong, united community for our children!


    Thank you for all you do –
