2024-25 Kindergarten Dual Language Lottery Information (click here) - on-line form due May 1st



April 20, 2024

Dear DES Families,

We have some big events coming up during the last month of school.  One of these will be a school wide fundaiser.  Denison Elementary has not conducted a major fundraiser since the fall of 2018.  A lot has happened in the world since that time, and we chose not to do a fundraiser every other year like we had done for decades.  We have been looking for a fundraiser that would allow families, friends, community members, and anyone interested to make a donation and not have to purchase items.  We are needing to raise funds to support initiatives and programs in our school.  Such things are materials, books, and prizes for family nights like Welcome to PK and K Nights, Soup and STEM Night, and Family Math & Literacy Nights.  Also, funds to pay for costs associated with field trips, musical costumes and materials, and other special activities.  We also need to update playground materials and equipment that are outdate or worn.  ALL funds raised go directly back to items or activities for our students!


From April 23rd to May 8th, we will be running an online fundraiser called MyBooster.  Donations can be made during that time and we will culminate the fundraiser with a PK-3 Celebration at the end of our Day of the Child week on Friday, May 3rd.  Families will be invited to visit school that day and enjoy the students doing many activities and rewards.  More information will be shared with you soon on how to register your student and help support our school.  We hope this type of fundraiser is better for our families to participate in rather than trying to sell items from a catalog like in the past.  During the time, if you have any questions, please contact the Denison Elementary Office at 263-3104.  Thank you for helping support our school!
