The PTA Needs YOU!

We are currently recruiting chairs/co-chairs for the following committees: 

These are some of the key committees that will still be able to function in a distance learning environment and we need your help to make them a success! This is a great way to get to know the school community and help us make the school year a fun and meaningful one for all of our children.

Please contact president@despta.org if you are interested!

Our brand new spirit gear store is open for business! We have some new designs to choose from, including a limited edition “face mask” logo, just for the 2020-2021 school year!

Every design is available on a wide variety of t-shirt colors, sizes and styles. Not into t-shirts? You can also get Diamond ES tank tops, hoodies, sweatshirts, even face masks. Not into clothes? You can still get Diamond ES stickers, pins, magnets, mugs, notebooks, throw pillows, tote bags, and more!
