SUPPORT THE PTA

Thanks to the generosity of our families and local businesses, the Durham Elementary School PTA funds many educational programs, teacher grants, and academic and social events throughout the year. We appreciate everyone who gives their time and/or resources to make Durham a great school.

WE NEED YOU!

The PTA likes to say, "it takes a village", and we need you in our tribe! There are numerous ways to get involved in the PTA and the events and initiatives we have on and off campus. Let us know what you are interested in helping out with.
