Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year at Dan Mills! We are excited about the year ahead and look forward to working together to support the school. Our mission is to engage our talents, skills, interests and abilities to make Dan Mills an outstanding learning environment for all of our students.
We work to fulfill that mission by getting involved! The PTO raises funds to support technology in our classrooms, curriculum materials, professional development, school activities, school improvements and so much more. We also recruit the volunteers that support our wonderful teachers and administration by offering their skills and time to help the school thrive! Our volunteers help with everything from gardening and landscaping to reading with children to hanging student art on the walls to serving food at the yearly Dragon Jubilee to serving as “teacher for an hour” so our amazing teachers can go out to lunch during Teacher Appreciation Week.
We hold two major fundraising events each year - our fall Dragon Jubilee (exact date in October to be announced soon) and our spring Silent Auction. We also raise funds through sales of Dan Mills E.S. "spirit wear," which can be worn as standard school attire every school day. Watch for more detailed information about both events and spirit wear availability in your child’s communication folder.
Speaking of which, the Dan Mills School Newsletter, The Dragon's Breath, is published monthly to help inform parents about everything to plan for in the month ahead. There will always be information from your PTO included in that newsletter, so plan to grab it out of your child’s communication folder and post it on the fridge every month!
