PTSA History
Dora Moore K-8 School Parent Teacher Student Association was founded in 1895. Originally named the “Mother’s Congress”, it was the first parent organization in the state. Our PTSA is a member of the Denver Council of the Colorado PTA.

The PTSA’s primary purpose is to provide enrichment to our students’ lives and educational experience at Dora Moore School. The PTSA’s fundraising sponsors programs and educational support throughout the year, such as Reading Is Fundamental free books, the Holiday Book Fair, “Prime Time” reading sleepover, English Language Learner classes, staff development, books and classroom equipment, enrichment programs, assemblies, and field day. The PTSA also publishes The Eagle Eye school newsletter.
