About D.E.C.O.

What is D.E.C.O.?

D.E.C.O. is our schools version of a parent, teacher, student, and staff organization (PTO). The initials stand for Duncan Elementary Community Organization.

All Duncan parents are a part of D.E.C.O. and we invite everyone to participate. The time commitment depends on the role, but there is certainly a good fit for everyone! D.E.C.O. holds regular meetings each month. Meetings are held in the Media Center.

The organization conducts fundraisers in order to purchase items for the school, offer educational assemblies, purchase playground equipment, and so much more…

Educationally, D.E.C.O. sponsors numerous social events throughout the year for the students and families of Duncan, which we believe supplement the educational experience for our children.
