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 we gave out 18 of these 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 Beautification 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 2018-2019 the Dawson Elementary PTA:

  • Had more members than ever before! But we've still got a long way to go to meet the goal of one member for each student at Dawson!
  • Raised more money at Spring Fling than ever before! This year Spring Fling was run by a small group of volunteers, if we can build that group we can build our fundraising strength!
  • Recruited five new banner sponsors and many other community sponsors ???
