Parent Teacher Organization

Our goal as a Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) at Desert Mountain Elementary is to support and encourage our school and our students. We organize fundraising and school events to help provide resources such as class equipment and supplies, office equipment, appliances, and much more. We can’t do it alone, and we encourage you to join us as we strive to enrich our children's educational experience at Desert Mountain Elementary. Thank you!
