Executive Board

This is my second year on the PTA board, and I'm serving this year as President. I have two kids at DSE (4th & 1st) and an older son at DSMS. We have loved being at DSE the past 4 years, and I'm so excited I am able to continue serving this amazing school and staff! If I'm not working out, I'm probably chugging coffee and enjoying time outside with my family!

When we're not fixin’ bones at the family orthopedic practice, we are fixin’ to have a good time with all things Elton John, caffeine, and travel!

VP of Ways & Means

Meghan Rossi  waysandmeans@dsepta.org


This is my first year serving on the PTA Board at DSE. Last year I served as Committee Chair for Fall Fest and had so much fun they couldn't get rid of me. I look forward to serving the school in all of our fundraising efforts. Elementary years are some of the most special, and it's my goal to make our school events some of the most cherished childhood memories for our families. I see how hard our teachers and staff work, and it's a thrill to know that the fruits of our efforts will help to enrich their classroom needs. We appreciate our teachers and we want to show it! I have two children at DSE (Kinder and 2nd), and look forward to seeing you throughout the school year. Go Tigers!

Meghan oversees the following committees:

Field Trip Shirts, School Supplies, Tiger Spirit Shop, Original Works, Fall Festival, APEX (Fun Run), and Spirit Nights

I’ve served on the PTA board for three years, and this year I'm serving as Treasurer. I have three boys, one is in 9th grade at DSHS, one is in 6th grade at DSMS and I have a 3rd grader here at DSE. I'm originally from England but have lived in Dripping for 4 years. I spend my days driving carpool and sitting on the soccer/football/basketball sidelines!

Erica Yamasaki secretary@dsepta.org


This is my first year on the PTA board, and I'm serving this year as Secretary. It’s our 2nd year at DSE for my girls who are in the 2nd & 5th grade. We moved to Drip just a short year ago and we absolutely LOVE the way this community rallies for our Tigers! I am honored and thrilled to be able to serve the fabulous DSE teachers, staff & students! 











Skyla Badger

I have three children and have been a parent at DSE for 12 years (and going strong for a couple more).  Volunteering around my work schedule hasn’t always been easy.  I started with sharpening pencils at home for the teacher and sending them back to her in my kid’s backpack.  I loved DSE from the beginning and it fills my bucket to help the staff and students. I’ve served DSE PTA, DSMS PTA, and DSISD Council of PTAs in many capacities.  I am currently the parliamentarian and help with science lab, recess inventory, and staff vending.
