DI Team Donation 

This year's DI Team wants to remind everyone that this is the last week to send in your donations for the animals at TGR Exotic Wildlife Park.  The animals love cereal boxes, snack boxes and kleenex boxes (please do not crush), old blankets, old spices (not spicy) and perfumes, old balls, baby toys that can be washed in a dishwasher, left over party goods (not plastic), paper towel and toilet paper rolls and paper cups.   Please bring items to Room 505.  Marked bags are ready for the donations.  The team has a field trip to take the items to TGR Exotic. Last day to accept donations is this Friday.  This is a link to the flyer that the team sent out a couple of weeks ago:

Parents as Coaches

DPES is looking for volunteers for our Parents as Coaches program! Parents as Coaches are weekly parent volunteers that work with small groups of students in a classroom for thirty minute increments. A language arts or math activity/game will be provided for the parent to play with the students. We believe that our community and parents play a significant role in our students’ success. All volunteers will need to submit and pass the district background check on the TISD webpage. If you are interested in volunteering for the Parents as Coaches program, please contact Mrs. Hudson at or complete the application form at
