About

Welcome to the Daniel Island School PTA!

The Parent Teacher Association (PTA) is a non-profit organization with the mission of supporting Daniel Island School’s students, teachers and community. 

The PTA provides funding for school resources and academic enrichment programs for our students (not funded by Berkeley County School District). This funding is not possible without the donations from parents through PTA membership giving and fundraisers, as well as business sponsors. 

Additionally, the PTA organizes parent volunteers to support our teachers and administrators, community events to bring together our students and families, and serves as an open line of communication between teachers, administration and parents.

Let’s work together to make our school the best experience possible for our students!
