We are a non-profit organization that expects to raise more than $80,000 this year, the Dublin Elementary PFC helps to fund programs and provide supplies that the school could not otherwise afford. It is the equivalent of the PTA you may remember from your own school days. This money supports our computer programs and provides instructional aides, yard duty support, curriculum enhancement, parent educator programs, classroom supplies, playground equipment, capital improvements such aslandscaping, enrichment and reading assistance programs, and much more.
To support high academic standards and a positive learning environment at our school through educational and social programs, parent outreach, and community involvement.
To make every child's potential a reality by:
Helping to provide a strong educational and learning environment for students
Maintaining a strong membership and good relationships with teachers and each other through effective communication, planning, documentation, and training
Having visibility and a voice in the community
Maintaining a healthy bank account through planning and the financial/strategic flexibility to adjust to outside factors
How Do I Get Involved?
We rely on dedicated volunteers, and we always need new members to contribute ideas and help plan and put on events! We encourage you to attend at least one of our meetings or ask any board member for information on current events where we always need extra volunteers!
The PFC meets at on the 1st Wednesday of each month in the DES library. See the school calendar for actual dates. (meetings typically last 1.5 hours)

At the PFC meeting on Oct 5th we approved the expenditure of funds to purchase licenses for an amazing high-tech, web-based math program (IXL) that will be used for all students who are excelling in Math. IXL uses adaptive questioning to quickly and accurately determine exactly what a student knows and doesn't know and then provides appropriate curriculum at their level, so they can go beyond their class work. Thanks to our 5th Grade teachers for helping find a great solution to help our high achieving students.

Family nights and all assemblies are paid for 100% by the PFC.

As our education system suffers from budget cuts, it is your donation that continues to help keep these important programs available to your student(s). It is not too late to help support the student's education here at Dublin El. Your tax deductible donation to the Dublin El PFC fund is always appreciated! :)
