We'd  Love to have your support!!!

Have you ever thought of getting involved in your children's education and watching them grow?

Then the DCES PTA is the perfect way to get involved.  With your help, the DCES PTA holds several events and ongoing programs throughout the year to raise necessary funds and make positive changes in all aspects of Dennis Chavez Elementary School.  We strive for continued support to the staff and teachers of Dennis Chavez. Come help and have a voice in how funds are allocated. 

Anyone can join: moms, dads, grandparents, aunts, uncles, and other caregivers.  

Please take a look at our Executive Board & Chairs Tab to learn about all the exciting events and programs we have.  And remember, even if you can only volunteer just an hour a month, that could make all the difference. 

If you can't volunteer at this time, we ask that each family consider a financial contribution. 

INSTEAD of asking students to sell items from catalogs in order to raise PTA funds, we ask each family for a


100% of your donation goes toward our school

While many other schools suggest an amount to give, we are leaving that up to each family.  Last year families donated anywhere from $3 to $300, and EVERY DOLLAR was greatly appreciated!  We raised more than $7,500 from 117 families and teachers, including PTA memberships and matching employee gifts.  Help us top those numbers this year!

You can make your donation at the beginning of the year when you join the PTA or at any other time during the year.  You can break your donation into multiple payments.  One way to do this is to set up your Paypal account to send us a few dollars each month.  After a year of $5 monthly payments, you'll have donated $60 to Diamond's fund. 

Remember, Donations make up a majority of the PTA's budget each year
