DCES PTA Mission

One hundred years ago Alice McLellan Birney said, "Let us have no more croaking as to what cannot be done; let us see what can be done, and above all see that it is done."  The National PTA is the oldest and largest volunteer association working exclusively on behalf of all children and youth.  

The overall purpose of the PTA, from the national level to the state level to the individual school level, is to make every child's potential a reality by engaging and empowering families and communities to advocate for all children

The Dennis Chavez Elementary PTA is committed to increasing parental involvement in support of our faculty, staff, and students.  Research shows that parent support helps to provide the best learning environment possible for students to be academically successful.

Direct Donations - Help our School






In this day in age we know that people's time is extremely valuable, and that is why we don't ask our families to sell from catalogs or spend hours fund raising.  We just ask that you consider an appropriate donation. And remember, 100% of your donation goes towards Dennis Chavez Elementary.  And as an added bonus, DCES PTA is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charity organization and will acknowledge all donations (including membership fees) with a tax deductible receipt
