Many of these members of our Dawes community made generous donations above and beyond their membership dues.  PTA would not be able to run all of its many initiatives without your financial support.


It’s not too late.  Please return the membership form                with the most generous gift you can manage to your child’s teacher or the Dawes office.  You will be supporting ALL of Dawes’ students through field trips, events, sports, after school programs, even supporting and appreciating our dedicated teachers and staff and their work with our kids.  Dawes PTA is part of the Evanston/Skokie PTA Council, Illinois PTA, and National PTA, through which we connect to local, state, and national advocacy efforts on behalf of our kids.  Volunteering in the classroom or in school-wide events, joining this Yahoo group, and parent education opportunities are all open and free of charge, but your financial support at any level helps keep PTA’s many programs available to all the children at Dawes.

PTA is a great way to get more involved in your child’s education.  Let us know of your ideas, questions, and suggestions.  We’ll see you around Dawes!
