Who is the DRES PTA?


Check out the school calendar to view upcoming PTA Events! 

PTA Meetings are typically the 3rd Tuesday of the month.  


The PTA's mission is to make every child’s potential a reality by engaging and empowering families and communities to advocate for all children.

  • Supporting and speaking on behalf of children and youth in the schools, in the community, and before government bodies and other organizations that make decisions affecting children (primarily National and State level PTAs)

  • Assisting parents in developing the skills they need to raise and protect their children; and

  • Encouraging parents and public involvement in the public schools of this nation.


The PTA would love for you to sign up this year and become a member! The PTA offers fun activities all year long for staff, students, and families to enjoy.  You can sign up by checking your child’s Wednesday folder for a paper form to complete or you can purchase your membership  or your families membership online at

Vacant Key DRES PTA positions             We love our volunteers and we could use your help!!


Even with this year starting differently, there are many opportunities to get involved. We’d love to hear your ideas! We are actively looking for volunteers to step up and take on a few critical roles for the new school year.  What role can you see yourself in? Don’t see a role that suits you but want to take on another role in the PTA? Great, let us know!    

Don’t be shy, click here to look at the list of open chair positions. Feels like too much work to chair a position? We are always looking for additional help with PTA events. You can volunteer your time, needed items, or maybe an extra donation with membership, the PTA at Deep Run appreciates anyone who can be involved! If you have any questions, please email
