Your Children. Our Mission.
You want the best for your child, and so do we. We support a strong and comprehensive education, enhanced resources, and safer schools for every child. Because your child’s development never stops, neither will we.
Who are we?
The DeWitt Elementary PTA is a team comprised of parents and educators who work to enrich the lives of students in grades PreK-5 in DeWitt Public Schools. Our efforts support Fuerstenau Early Childhood Center, Schavey Road Elementary School, David Scott Elementary School, and Herbison Woods Elementary School. We are committed to helping develop united efforts between parents, educators and communities that will secure for all children, the highest advantages in physical, mental and social education.
What do we do?
It is our goal to provide resources for our students and teachers to enrich and enhance their educational experience. We provide supplementary building financing and the opportunity for teacher grants for supplies and activities such as field trips and assemblies. We provide meals and celebratory events for our teachers such as Conference Cuisine and Staff Appreciation Week. We also provide family night activities in which the price of admission is simply donations for a classroom snack inventory.
How Do We Do It?
The DeWitt Elementary PTA has a yearly operating budget. We raise these funds through in-house fundraisers including our annual Denim & Diamonds Silent and Live Auction event.
We also have a Business Sponsor program and conduct smaller soft fundraising campaigns throughout the year. Donations are tax deductible.
