Points of Pride
"We Serve Too!"
At Desertaire Elementary, we are proud to serve a large military community. The group members of "We Serve Too" develop a camaraderie, while their brave family members serve our country both at Ft. Bliss and during deployments. Students with close family members meet throughout the month to participate in activities, community events and provide each other with support. Military children can be faced with a life of frequent moves, changing schools, saying good bye to friends and making new ones. The "We Serve Too" club helps to ease the transition and build a strong community within our school. We believe that service is not limited to the enlisted and officers. Their families serve too! As of this time the club will be open to all students of Active Duty Military Parents. The club is facilitated by Mrs. Amber Calvin whose husband served in the Air Force for 26 years. The club meets two Fridays a month from 7:00- 7:30 am.
We have an ambitious goal this school year that each child enrolled in YISD have their own public library card. Doing so ensures students have accessible information and educational resources available to them at home and in the classroom. Students can have access to Tumblebooks, free periodicals, audiobooks and more!
Please click on the link below to download the application, verify the address is correct and turn in the application by Monday, October 26th. I will take the application to our contact with the public library and your child will receive their own personal library card in the mail.
Join us in making this a successful partnership with our local public library.
