Parent Council is in need of the talents many of our parents and extended community (grandparents, neighbors, friends etc.) have to offer. The online auction donations are coming in – Thank you! We plan on creating MORE amazing packages to bid on.
Here is a list of services that have been donated in the past. Anything big or small will bring us that much closer to our fundraising goals.
air b&b rentals or second homes
facials or aesthetics
airline miles or tickets
unused memberships to museums, spas etc.
or any service that could be a value to our community
Thank you all in advance for making this years Spring fundraiser a huge success with excitement and goals achieved!

As most of you know, the Parent Council team is working very diligently to raise funds for the outdoor learning space that will offer our children an extension to the classroom while providing much needed shade that will protect them from our Arizona sun.
Jamba Juice on Thursday’s after school.
Healthy snack bar on Tuesday, Wednesday and Fridays after school. The snacks will range from $1-$4 and all proceeds will go towards the Grade 3/4 outdoor patio space.
The roller skating fundraiser was a HUGE success and we look forward to hosting another skating party on April 25th with more details to come.
We had a VERY generous family step up and offer to match any donations up to $3,500. The deadline for the donation match is MARCH 9th- We are still in need of about $10,000 to get this project underway. Any help is appreciated and your donations can be made online here.
Thank you all so much for your continued support and with the growth of our amazing DMS community.
A DMS family has generously offered to gift match up to $3,500 for a new outdoor learning and shaded porch area for the lower grades buildings. An extension of the 3rd & 4th grade classrooms will offer a much needed covered space for outdoor learning, eating and playing.
We have until Friday, March 9th to receive the matching gift donations.
Double the Impact – Any dollar amount will be matched. Consider giving what you are able to help fund this beautiful addition to our campus. This match is a great opportunity to give your first online donation to support this project.
The Parent Council leadership team wishes to thank all of the hard working families that volunteered their time and talents for the Winter Faire. Your efforts were most fruitful, raising nearly $10,000 for our school! This event is not possible without the dedication of parents and staff who show up and work the event along with those that work tireless hours in advance crafting, baking, organizing and setting up to make the day a true community endeavor.
We are appreciative of your feedback, positive and constructive; please take a moment to complete the brief survey at this link: Winter Faire VOLUNTEER feedback
If you plan on giving to a charitable organization this GivingTuesday…consider donating to the DMS Scholarship Fund. Last school year, DMS awarded almost $45,000 in scholarships to provide students in need with school lunches and help cover fees for materials, pre-k tuition, field trips and extended care programs.
Tuft & Needle Raffle tickets are coming this week!!
Once again this year, we have been fortunate enough to have a Tuft & Needle mattress (any size) donated to Desert Marigold School. The T&N tickets will cost only $5 each and are available for purchase in the office from Ms. Deb. You may sell as many as you like to family or friends and T&N will ship the mattress to the winner. The winner will be drawn the day of Winter Faire – Sat, Dec 9.
We will also be selling these tickets select mornings or afternoons next week leading up to Winter Faire. This is a wonderful opportunity for all the proceeds go directly to the school. We have also teamed with T&N for an ongoing fundraiser. Any mattress purchased through the school link will receive 25% of the purchase price donated back to the school.
