Welcome to Durbin Creek Elementary
The Durbin Creek Elementary PTO seeks to encourage and enhance the educational experience of our children, teachers, and administration.
We pride ourselves on being a powerful voice for all Durbin Creek families, a relevant resource for our community and a strong advocate for the well-being and education of our students.
At Durbin Creek Elementary we are building a strong, active and successful parent-teacher association where we provide educational, enriching and fun opportunities to the children and families at Durbin Creek. We encourage members to volunteer, be informed, and to participate.
THE ADVENTURE HAS BEGUN!
Welcome back explorers! It has been an absolute delight to see all those little faces in the hallways of DCE again and we have enjoyed meeting several new and returning families at orientation.
Now that we have begun to settle into a routine, we want to remind you that the PTO is here to help bridge the school parent connection and we welcome any constructive feedback or comments. Feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We had an excellent turn out at our spirit store at orientation and are excited to have our online spirit store open now! It is only open until THIS FRIDAY AUGUST 27th, so do not forget to order! Please note that 2021-2022 spirit wear styles will be purchased thru pre-order therefore it will not be available until 2-3 weeks after the store is closed. Additionally, vintage styles and other spirit gear (lanyards, socks, totes, etc) have a limited amount of inventory left, once we sell out of those there will be no more available.
And Remember! Every Friday is Spirit Day and one Friday a month PTO will be handing out a treat to Explorers with school spirit!
FUN RUN KICK-OFF - Oct 12
We have been planning some fun back to school events and preparing for our big fundraiser, The Fun Run, this October. For those of you who are new to this event, it promises to be loads of fun for the kids while raising funds for school equipment and programs. You will hear more information on this over the next several weeks so stay tuned!
HUGE THANK YOU TO OUR VOLUNTEERS!
We are so grateful to our parents and high school students who volunteered along with us at orientation, and all those that helped the PTO and school with preparations for the new school year. It was a whirlwind and we could not have accomplished it all without you! We look forward to working with more volunteers at our upcoming events and will be reaching out to those who signed up over the next month.
Starting this school year has been challenging in many ways but we are proud of the unity and resiliency our DCE family has demonstrated, a fact we are so heartened to see. We look forward to meeting more of you as the school year rolls on, until then keep exploring!
