Support Our School

PTA

Welcome to Ducketts Lane Elementary School’s Parent Teacher Association

The mission of PTA is to make every child’s potential a reality by engaging and empowering families and communities to advocate for all children. Here at DLES, we raise funds for enrichment activities, volunteer at school events, and hold our own community events.

Keep in touch! Like us on Facebook and message us there with any questions.

We Need You!
There are so many benefits to PTA membership, including:

Amplify your voice. Get informed about what you can do to affect local, state and federal policies that impact children, families and schools.
Have fun and meet new people!
Benefit from money-saving deals.
Create the village that helps to raise kids and strengthen schools and communities.

Be a part of the great things happening at Ducketts Lane! Interested community members can pay the membership fee ($10 per person) via PayPal, and will receive a membership card in their child’s Thursday folder shortly.
