Thanks to everyone for their support of Teacher Appreciation Week and all our Staff Appreciation lunches this year! Check back at the start of the 2018-2019 school year for next year's plans.

If you have any questions please email 

CRS PTA Staff Appreciation Committee

The Staff Appreciation Committee is currently seeking volunteers for the 2018-2019 school year. If you are interested,  please send an email to to inquire about ways you can help us recognize our staff throughout the school year. There are multiple roles to fill so perhaps there is something that works with your schedule. 

Co-Chair requirements: At least one co-chair will have to be available to be at school on the day of lunches (does not have to be same person each time) but there are also behind the scenes support roles available as well. The schedule and theme of the lunches will be set for the year and ideally there will be a minimum of 2 volunteer hosts per event for each grade's event. Volunteering on this committee is great way to get to know the school staff and celebrate all of their dedicated service to the community. 

Staff Appreciation Committee 2018-19 Schedule

The Staff Appreciation Committee coordinates the schedule and themes for all of the events throughout the school year that show appreciation to the entire CRS Staff. These events are a fun way to get involved and to say "Thank You" for all the hard working and dedicated Faculty and Staff members that support our children every day.  We need volunteers from every grade level to assist with hosting monthly Staff Luncheons (one per grade level).

Below is a list of Staff Appreciation Events for the 2018-19 school year. These dates are subject to change as required. 

If you would like more information on how to volunteer to help with these events or to support this committee,  please email us by clicking here
