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.

Become part of the Denver Language School Celebration Community Garden for 2016!

We are now accepting applications to have a garden plot for the 2016 season!  The DLS Celebration Community Garden applications will be accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis. Once the plots are full, you will be placed on a waiting list. Denver Urban Gardens asks each gardener to pay a $35/year fee, which helps subsidize water, compost and other garden materials. This fee can be waived based on financial need, so please ask for information because the garden is open to all! 

Contact Garden Leader Julie Feeny at garden@dlspta.org for information.  

Happy Gardening!

The DLS Celebration Community Garden is a school-supported community garden opened in 2014 in partnership with Denver Urban Gardens. In addition to providing a space for school families and neighbors to connect while growing delicious food, the garden provides a hands-on learning opportunity for students and their teachers to explore life sciences, healthy living and taking care of the environment.
