About the Davis Parent Teacher Association

The Davis Elementary Parent Teacher Association's (PTA) mission is to ensure that every student at Davis can reach their full potential through public education. The PTA helps students by building strong working relationships among parents, teachers, and the school administration. 


The Davis PTA fulfills our mission in these four ways:


The Davis PTA provides a framework for parents, teachers, students, and administrators to come together on an on-going basis to have open communication and make decisions as a community.


We are a ground-up organization; it’s our members that decide how to best support our Davis Dolphins. It sounds like serious business (and it is) but the PTA is a great way to have lots of fun and make new friends, while serving the Davis community. 


PTA plans and hosts our school carnival, Dolphin Fest; our annual parent party, the Big To Do; as well as Skate Nights and Dine with Davis.


We bring our Dolphin Family together for fun events year-round because a community that plays together stays together.


We can all agree that an outstanding education requires learning more than just the basics of each subject. Davis PTA enriches campus life in lots of ways large and small. We create the yearbook, manage the website and campus communications, run the Science Fair, host the 5th grade play, and our “Welcome to Davis” committee plans events for incoming kindergarten families.


PTA sponsors our annual Reflections Art Gallery and Exhibition that showcases Davis Dolphins’ talents in visual arts, music composition, photography and more. Student winners from Davis elementary have the opportunity to show their submissions at the state and national level. 

Support for students & teachers 

Austin, Texas is a worldwide technology capital. Davis PTA wants Davis Dolphins to be the next generation of innovators that pioneer new breakthroughs! Our students deserve the best.


The Davis PTA provides funding for curriculum, teacher training, and materials for the Project Lead the Way (PLTW) program. This program is tailored to empower young students to solve real-world problems collaboratively in small groups using critical thinking and communication. This approach provides students with opportunities to apply what they know, persevere through challenges, find unique solutions, and lead their own learning in fields of study, such as computer science, engineering, and biomedical science.


Every year, PTA provides funds for new library books, PE equipment, outdoor classrooms, updated technology, etc. 


The PTA's Teacher Appreciation committee primarily focuses on making the teachers and staff feel acknowledged and recognized as exceptional and valued! The committee organizes monthly teacher appreciation lunches.


The average teacher in the U.S. spends about $500 of their own money on classroom supplies for their students every year. The PTA provides approximately $200 to each Davis teacher each year to make sure they have what they need to make their classroom and school year a success. 


The best way to teach our students to be future leaders and good citizens is by setting an example. The Davis PTA is actively engaged in helping shape policy decisions that affect education at the local, state, and federal level. We educate our community about important educational issues when they are on the ballot and help get our community to the polls during elections. 



Our advocacy efforts were recognized by Mayor Steve Adler and City Council Representative Dr. Alison Alter, and we were honored to accept the National PTA Local Advocacy award for 2020.


None of this amazing work would be possible without a dedicated team of volunteers.


Some parents have no idea that the PTA funds and organizes so much of this incredible work, so please join, donate if you are able, and help spread the word about this great association!
