Dyersburg Primary School PTO

Dear Parents/Guardians/Caregivers,

On behalf of the Parent Teacher Organization (PTO), I want to welcome you to the Dyersburg Primary School 2023-2024 academic year! We are excited to meet and work with you as the school year begins!

The Parent Teacher Organization consists of family members and teachers who work together to provide for our school and cheer on every child who walks through these doors. We strive to ensure our teachers, staff, and students have the support they need to succeed at every level.

Throughout the year, we host several different fundraising events. It is through these fundraisers that we can give back to our school. Fundraising opportunities include membership fees, Trojan spirit wear, competitive spirit nights through local businesses, etc. Always be on the lookout for information sent home throughout the school year in your child’s Tuesday folder and on the DPS Facebook page.

The PTO also sponsors several events throughout the school year, including Holiday Reading Night in December (with a special appearance from Santa), quarterly spirit awards, Teacher Appreciation Week, various staff appreciation days, May Day, and the Book Fair.

We are always looking for volunteers to help with our events. Please stop by the PTO table at the Back-to-School Celebration, introduce yourself, and sign up to be on our team!

If you are on Facebook, like our page - “Dyersburg Primary School PTO.”

As always, it’s a GREAT day to be a Trojan!!
