Our Mission

We at Friends of Dinsmore Elementary believe investing extra effort and resources on our Title One public school students will last a lifetime. These K-5 students need confidence and a strong academic foundation to:

  • pursue the educational trajectories taken for granted in affluent families and
  • succeed in tomorrow’s gig economy.

Our Focus

Currently the Friends of Dinsmore Elementary has these objectives:

  • Continue and enhance our Know & Grow Literacy Program for kindergarteners and first-graders.
  • Re-start the volunteer Reading Buddies for kindergarteners and first-graders once COVID restrictions are eased.
  • Enrich the K to 5 science program with teaching tools and activity supplies.
  • Beautify and restore the grounds to instill pride and set the example of how a property should be maintained.
  • Encourage the community to get involved with the school.

Established in 2019 as a 501(c)(3) charitable non-profit, we are governed by a Board of Directors.
