Making a Positive Impact on Student Learning

Sandburg & DCS PTSA in Kirkland, Washington is dedicated to building a more comfortable and inclusive learning environment for every student. We have formed the Parent Teacher Student Association (PTSA) to carry out initiatives that help students learn new skills and develop friendships inside and outside of the classroom.


About the PTSA

We are a school-based organization providing supplemental funds to teachers and specialists for the classroom, library, PE, music and playground materials. Our association also contributes emergency preparedness equipment to the school and sponsors various before and after-school enrichment classes and clubs.

Carl Sandburg/DCS PTSA will strive to:
  1. Enhance the learning environment for all students.
  2. Be a relevant resource for families, teachers, staff and administration.
  3. Advocate for the education and well-being of every child.
