Message from President

Welcome Back Husky Family!  

I would like to welcome all returning and new families to David Harrison Elementary!     I hope you all had a wonderful, fun-filled summer! I would like to take a moment to introduce myself, my name is Candice Lourenco.  I am honored and excited to serve as your PTA President for the 2019-2020 school year. My two boys are attending DHE this year. My oldest, Cruz, will be in second grade; and my youngest, Cash, will be a kindergartener.  My family is so thankful to be a part of this amazing school and all that it offers its students and their families.  

PTA is a national organization for child advocacy to support the education, health and safety of ALL children. Within DHE, events include Fall Festival (SAVE THE DATE – September 26th), Book Fair, All Pro Dad Breakfast, Backpack Program, Spirit wear, Field Day, Teacher Appreciation, Student Appreciation, and Classroom Holiday Parties.  Through fundraising efforts, which include some of these events, the PTA can assist with funding learning tools, classroom supplies, field trips, and gifts to the school. 

All of this takes hard work, dedication and commitment from our community, parents, teachers and staff.  With everyone working together, contributing different skills and talents, helping our Huskies continue to grow and be educated in the amazing environment that DHE is known for.  Every membership helps our school in so many ways! There are multiple opportunities throughout the year to volunteer during and after school hours for those that can’t get away from work.  Along with physically volunteering, item donations for various activities can be made which are a huge help as well. The more parents get involved, the more amazing our school becomes! Please show your support and join!  I look forward to meeting and working with each of you!

Please remember that we are a 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code organization and that your contribution is tax deductible.  No goods or services are received for a donation.
