What is DREAM?

 DREAM is Deterding Elementary School's Parent Teacher Organization (PTO).  DREAM stands for Deterding Resources for Education, Arts & Music. 

Does it cost money to join DREAM?

 No.  All parents, families, teachers, staff, and students are automatically DREAM Team members. We want everyone to participate without having to pay dues.  It is our hope that each and every family at Deterding will donate their time, efforts, and contributions towards the success of our students and faculty. 

How can I help?

 DREAM will need many volunteers to help with events such as the International Celebration, DREAM Run, Talent Show, Art & Music Festival, Harvest Festival, Breakfast with Santa and more.  We know that volunteering is work, but it also a great way to meet other parents and spend time together as a family. We have a great time working towards a common goal. Come join us and be part of it! 

Who can I contact with questions?

 Please feel free to contact us by email at info@deterdingpto.org with any questions.  Our regular monthly meetings are held on the 3rd Tuesday of the month at 7 PM in the Art Room (Rm 18).  Please check the school calendar for updates or schedule changes.
