Welcome! The mission of the PTA is to improve the education provided to DLS students by supporting the school and its activities. The PTA helps to fund a wish list of items from the school as well as many additional activities that make our school such a wonderful place. The success of the PTA is directly linked to the participation of parents, so we strongly encourage everyone to be involved this year. 


How do I get Involved? 

The PTA is a volunteer-driven organization. There are many ways to be involved. There are activities that can accommodate any schedule and skill set. Each family is asked to volunteer 15 hours every school year.

Volunteers Needed: 
  • Looking for Room Parents for 2016-2017 - Would you like to be more involved in your child’s classroom during the next school year? A great way to do this is by volunteering to be a Room Parent. Room Parents act as the link between the teachers and the parents in a class, among other things. If you’re interested, please email your contact info to spanishsupport@dlspto.org or mandarinsupport@dlspto.org.



  • Join the Nomination Committee for New Members to the DLS BoardThe DLS Board is looking for parent participation on its newly formed nomination committee. This committee, co-chaired by two board members, will meet a few times over the summer to process new board member applications and to make recommendations for nomination to the board. If you are interested in serving on this ad hoc committee, please contact Lisa Peloso at lisapeloso.dls@gmail.com

  • DLS Green Team In Need of Lunchroom Help - We are so excited to have our compost and recycling programs back at DLS, but for the programs to succeed, we really need some parent help!
