Welcome to Daffron Elementary PTA
Staff Appreciation Week
Please let the staff know how much we appreciate all of their efforts with our children!
The order form for school supplies is now available. The deadline for ordering supplies will be extended to allow adequate time for ordering school supplies. Thanks for your support!
A fun-filled day for the children at Daffron Elementary! Games begin at 8:30 AM for Kindergarten through 2nd Grade. 3rd through 5th Grade will begin at noon.
Field Day fosters cooperation, skill development, decision making, and sportsmanship. Activities vary in format and reinforce sports skills learned during the year. Some activities will also purely be recreational. The kids will have a blast! If you have not signed up to volunteer, please do so.
For Field Day to be successful we need a lot of parent help! Please remember – you must have completed the background check to help. Look for more information by selecting the picture above and to access the volunteer form. We are looking forward to a great day with the kids! For more information contact Hilary Hetzel at or firstname.lastname@example.org or Liz Vargas at email@example.com.
