Frequently Asked Questions about PTO Membership:

I joined last year, do I need to join again?

Yes, we ask our families to join the PTO each year. Your annual dues support the PTO events and activities all year long.  

I get the Dolphin Digest each week, so does that mean I am a PTO member?

No, anyone can subscribe to the Dolphin Digest. The PTO wants everyone to have access to information. Your annual PTO dues do help cover the cost of our Constant Contact email service. To be a PTO member, please follow the link above and join the PTO.  

What benefit do I get for joining the PTO?

In addition to supporting our fantastic Dogwood students, teachers, and community, PTO members receive access to the online PTO Member Directory through Membership Toolkit. Members can access the directory on the Membership Toolkit webpage or through the Membership Toolkit app. After you join, download the Membership Toolkit app and log in. In the app, you can search for names, filter by class, touch to call or text, pull up maps, and add contacts to your phone. You will love it!!  

Don't forget to download the Membership Toolkit App on Apple or Google to your smart phone!

Please contact our Membership Chairperson, Jamie Bialowitz, with any questions.

Attention fifth grade students! The DES Orchestra is looking for interested students for a beginning strings course that will meet during the school hours. There is a growing body of research that shows that studying music in school is of tremendous benefit to every child, and we are eager for your child to begin to experience those benefits as well.You can learn more by watching this recruitment video.

If you are interested in joining, please fill out the registration form, or you can contact Mr. Smith with any questions.


Wellness Screening

Parents, please remember to complete our Daily Skyward Wellness Screening Tool. Only students who are attending school in-person, or otherwise coming onto campus for an after school activity need to complete the daily screening. 

Please view this video and these General Health Guidelines from our Student Services Department for more information.


Bicycle Safety

Please remind your children to wear their helmets when riding their bikes to and from school. It is a TN state law that anyone under the age of 16 is required to wear a helmet while riding, and all bikes should be equipped with at least a front white light and a red rear reflector. We want our Dolphins to stay safe!

Box Tops for Education

Parents, did you know that the new Box Tops for Education app will automatically find participating products purchased at any store and instantly add cash to Dogwood's earnings?

Visit Box Tops for Education to sign up for the program. Be sure to download the app so you can scan your grocery receipt before you even leave the store!

Watch this quick video to see how easy the new program is to use!

You will be able to select your child's classroom to help them earn a pizza party! Be sure to tell your friends and family about the app!
