Desert Trails Elementary School Parent Teacher Organization

Desert Trails Elementary School Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) is an all-volunteer organization dedicated to enriching the school experience for our students. Our programs and fundraisers provide students with an array of opportunities that would not otherwise be open to them. We support programs ranging from arts enrichment to teacher continuing education to providing our school nurse with supplies. We are fortunate to live in a community that is able to invest in students. Please join us as we strive to put every dollar to work to make our school the very best. Our work begins where the school budget ends!
