From the President

 

Welcome, Daffron Families!

 
PTA is committed to the betterment of the educational experience for all of the children of Daffron Elementary. We hope that you join our team, so that we can work toward this goal together!

 

Our PTA is the reason that our children are able to go on multiple field trips during the year, to places like the Perot Museum, the Dallas Zoo, and the Dallas Arboretum. It is through our fundraising efforts that we are able to provide electronic resources in the classrooms, including iPads and Chromebooks. As an organization, we are able to fulfill Wish List requests for the staff and to provide extra educational games and activities in the classrooms; more books in the library; and other classroom, P.E., and school equipment that benefits our children. PTA-sponsored programs (i.e, STOP and Mission Possible Kids) promote community involvement and good citizenship, while others expand our children’s experiences in drama and art, and still others celebrate the diversity of our Daffron family.

 

Joining PTA also provides you, as a parent/guardian, the additional benefits of:

  • Staying updated on the happenings at school
  • Becoming better connected with the faculty and staff

  • Participating in the events and activities that enhance the school life of your child

  • Ensuring the success of your child with your participation in the educational experience 

On our Daffron PTA website, you have the opportunity to join our team, starting August 1. So, please follow the instructions under BACK-TO-SCHOOL REGISTRATION or go to the “My Account” menu and sign up today! In addition, please don’t forget the other links found on the homepage. There is a link to fill out a volunteer application through PISD, which must be completed every year. This will ensure that you are able to participate in the events at school with your child. Subscribing to Daffron eNews will also help keep you aware of all the events and school happenings. You may also purchase yearbooks and spirit wear now, as well as other items throughout the year.
Important beginning-of-the-year dates to add to your calendar:

  • Meet the Teacher – Friday, August 19, 7:15 a.m.–8:15 a.m.

  • First Day of School – Monday, August 22

  • Homeroom Teacher Meeting – Tuesday, August 23, 6:00 p.m. or 7:00 p.m.

We look forward to welcoming you as a PTA member, and to seeing you at school! If you have any questions, please email me at president@daffronpta.org.
