We support Dawson teachers as they work to provide our children with a well-rounded education:

  • We sponsor a grant program that provides $150 worth of classroom and special project materials to Dawson teachers.  Last year our students and teachers benefitted from $3,500 in grants!
  • We organize volunteer-power for classroom help, field trips and special events such as Field Day, Talent Show, Family Nights

We support the Dawson community:

  • We sponsor fun events that allow us to be together as a community while also raising money for our school (Movie Night, Snowball, Spring Fling)
  • We provide financial support for projects to beautify and modernize our campus including working alongside the Grounds Committee to plant new and revitalize existing flowerbeds and garden spaces across the campus.
  • We facilitate partnerships and donations from neighborhood businesses that benefit Dawson students and families as well as the broader community.

In 2019-2020 the Dawson Elementary PTA:

  • Had more members than ever before--106! But we've still got a long way to go to meet the goal of one member for each student at Dawson--350!
  • Raised $3,500 in our 'No fuss Fundraiser'! This year, due to COVID-19, our biggest fundraising event, Spring Fling was canceled. However, our families pulled together and donated to continue to support our school.
  • Recruited eight new banner sponsors and many other community sponsors.
