"We Serve Too!"
At Desertaire Elementary, we are proud to serve a large military community. The group members of "We Serve Too" develop a camaraderie, while their brave family members serve our country both at Ft. Bliss and during deployments. Students with close family members meet throughout the month to participate in activities, community events and provide each other with support. Military children can be faced with a life of frequent moves, changing schools, saying good bye to friends and making new ones. The "We Serve Too" club helps to ease the transition and build a strong community within our school. We believe that service is not limited to the enlisted and officers. Their families serve too! As of this time the club will be open to all students of Active Duty Military Parents. The club is facilitated by Mrs. Amber Calvin whose husband served in the Air Force for 26years. The club meets two Fridays a month from 7:00- 7:30am.
