Volunteer Sign Up – We are still in need of volunteers for the following positions: Chair- Artcot, Chair- Field Day, Committee members for All School Yearbook and PTA Webmaster.  For more information, check out position descriptions on our SignUp website
First PTA Meeting –  The first PTA meeting and New Family Welcome is scheduled for Wednesday, August 31st, at 7:00pm in the school gym. Babysitting is provided.
School Supply Kits – As a reminder, if you ordered school supply kits from Carlson’s online back in May, they will be delivered directly to the school and will be waiting for the students in their classrooms on the first day of school.  The teachers will direct the students in labeling their supplies using the pre-printed name labels provided by Carlson’s.  Take note of the items that were NOT included in the kits (gym shoes, art smock, old sock, band/orchestra items, etc.) and send those with your student as needed on the first day.  
Like us on Facebook!  – Pierce Downer Elementary PTA is on Facebook ( and will post pictures periodically from PTA-sponsored school events and activities.  If you need detailed information about our programs and events, please visit our website at
