    Welcome to Francis A. Desmares School! We have a lot to be proud of at Desmares Elementary School. Our staff is dedicated to giving children what they need to grow academically, emotionally and socially. We are committed to providing educational opportunities through which all students strive to achieve their full potential. Our very active and supportive PTO is such an integral part of our school community. They not only support our school initiative but also provide us with educational assemblies, programs and fun-filled events. On behalf of the Desmares staff, we want to extend our best wishes for an educationally challenging and joyful school year together.
