Delano Elementary School


Welcome to Partners in Education

Delano Elementary School-Partners In Education (DES-PIE) needs your thoughts, time, and talent continue to make our school the success that it is today. Parents, teachers and our community help raise over $55,000 every year for our students by holding our own carnivals, family fun nights, having our one and only Fall Fundraiser, collecting Box Tops, Target Guest Cards, DQ Nights; just to name a few.

With our funds, we have proudly purchased state of the art technology for every classroom, field trips, books/magazines, school-wide residency programs and much more! In the past couple of years, we were able to help build a Leveled Library in our elementary school. A Leveled Library system enables teachers to have access to books at each child’s reading level for a particular lesson, which allows teachers to best meet the individual needs of each student.

You can help by: Donating your Time
DES-PIE meetings occur every 2nd Tuesday of the month from 7-8 pm at the Elementary School Library (enter through the main school doors) We encourage you to come and see what PIE is all about! Your thoughts and opinions are valued!! It is also a great way to meet our wonderful elementary staff. See our meeting schedule, agendas, and minutes.
If you haven’t already done so, we recommend that you like Delano Elementary PIE on Facebook. This is a great way to keep up on current events in the entire district, and DES-PIE will use this page to send reminders of our monthly meetings and other important announcements.

There are many volunteer opportunities at our school this year. Whether you have just one hour to spare or many, find out how you can help!

Please remember that volunteers working with children during the school day must be properly trained. Go to the elementary school website Volunteering Link, and complete the required paperwork also found on this page. You are also required to do a background check as well.  Background checks and volunteer paperwork are not required to attend meetings and be a part of PIE.  So come join us and check it out.

Thank you for supporting our school and your child’s education!
