About Us


Sidewinder PTO Teacher Liaison Mrs. Hull-Ottino working directly with our DSMS students.

 The purpose of the PTO is to enhance and support the educational experience at Desert Shadows Middle School (DSMS), to develop a closer connection between school and home.  We encourage parental involvement and to improve the environment at DSMS through volunteer and financial support. Your donation goes a long way. We help pay for Campus Improvements, Teacher/Staff Appreciation, UPC membership, and so much more! Membership is automatically granted to all parents, guardians and staff at DSMS. Members have voting privileges, one vote per household.
