There are no after school activities or childcare offered for this day and no staff will be available to support late students as they have meetings and end of year procedures and training to attend to.

PTSA Announces A New President For The 2023-2024 School Year…Lane Harlow! 

As a proud parent of a first grader, Lane is fairly new to the Dora Moore community, however she is not new to education, having worked as a teacher and an administrator across Denver for over 10 years. Next year, Lane is excited to expand upon the PTSAs work of equity by elevating diverse voices from within our community. 

What we’re all about… 


The PTSA supports the development of community among parents, teachers, and students. It brings all of us together to have fun, to connect, and to learn. 


The PTSA advocates for parents' interests and concerns at the school and district level. It addresses issues such as student well-being, safety, educational quality, equity and parental rights. 


The PTSA provides additional funding for school-wide activities.


The ways in which the 2022-2023 PTSA Supported the Dora Moore Community include…

  • The FREE Community Store
  • Social Emotional school wide curriculum 
  • Dia de Los Muertos celebration 
  • Funding for field trips
  • Teacher Appreciation Week 
  • Support for a Summer Reading Program
  • Food and Volunteers at the Grill and Chill
  • Food and Volunteers at the Block Party 
  • Black History Month celebration 
  • Annual Parent Party and Fundraiser 
  • Funding for Teacher grants 
  • Funding for enrichments such as Archery 


We invite every family to PTSA, because we can do more together than apart. Next year, consider joining Lane as a Board Member. Open positions include; Treasurer, Diversity Equity and Inclusion Coordinator, Advocacy Coordinator, and Communications / IT Coordinator. The treasurer position is of most importance to help coordinate the intake and distribution of funds as the board gets ready for next school year.

A Message From Our Wonderful Nursing Team

All medications and medical equipment must be picked up from the school health office by 06/02/2023 @ 12:00PM. Please make a plan with the school nurse Erin or health tech Sasha for pickup. You may email @ or call at 720-424-5305. All medications must be picked up by an adult and cannot be sent home with a student. Any medication not retrieved by this time will be disposed of and discarded. 
Summer Programming: If your student is participating in a summer program, the parent/guardian must pick up the medication/equipment on the last day of school and bring it to the summer program on the first day.  You can find medication forms for the upcoming year here. Have a great summer! 

No Movie On The Field :(

We tried to pull this event off, but logistically with the equipment and vendors we ultimately could not turn it around by June 1st.  

We will shoot for this event in the fall!

Enrichment and/or GT/HGT Opportunities for the Summer

The GT Department in DPS has consolidated a bunch of opportunities and resources available to students this summer. Some of these are specific to students who are formally identified, but many are available to any and all interested!

Check out the list here!

Chromebooks Due Back by June 1st!

If you did not fill-out the survey sent to all families by DPS last week, then you did not want your student to check out a Chromebook and charger for the summer (only 6 families at Dora Moore indicated they want to keep the Chromebook over the summer via the survey).

Please ensure all students return the Chromebook and charger to their classroom teacher at Dora Moore by Thursday, June 1st. For Chromebooks not returned, a MySchoolBucks fee will be added to their account for replacement costs. Students and families can find additional resources and information regarding Chromebooks and Internet access at

For Chromebook support over the summer, you can contact the Department of Technology Services (DoTS) Student and Family Tech Support line at 720-423-3163.
