Dear Daves Creek Families,


We hope you are having a wonderful summer! One of our goals for the 2022-2023 school year is to increase PTA membership to insure 100% participation.  Partnerships between parents, educators and children enhance student success and empower our community.  Working together to share thoughts and information and collaborate on projects increases student learning and enriches their lives.


Why should you join PTA?

  • PTA is a 501(c)(3) charity set up to support the success of our Daves Creek students. 
  • Your membership is a tax-deductible donation of $70 or $130 per student.
  • You will receive discounts to events and free items for joining our PTA.

  • PTA hosts events for our students and families, such as Family Movie Night, Father-Daughter Dance, Mother-Son Night, and classroom Winter Celebrations.

  • Membership in PTA directly supports Daves Creek by providing additional materials for STEM activities, 5th Grade end-of-year celebrations, and increased technology needs. These are all above and beyond the outstanding support already provided by our school system.

To join online, go to www.davescreekpta.org 

  • Click on “Join PTA today” to register and enter your family information.
  • Verify your account from the verification email you will receive.
  • Purchase your Membership, Spirit Wear, and yearbooks.
  • Sign up for volunteer opportunities! (Not a requirement to join PTA)

If you opt not to join online, just complete the membership form and bring it to the cafeteria at Open House on Tuesday, August 2nd.


Thank you for your much-needed support. We look forward to an exciting and successful school year!


See you in August!
