Donate to the Bobcat Fund:
The Bobcat Fund is our direct-donation drive to support all the fun activities and important initiatives that makes CRS an exciting and thriving school — including academic enrichment, student assemblies, teacher support, parent education, technology upgrades, and teacher appreciation. A donation of $125 per family is ideal, but your gift of ANY size is GREATLY appreciated to fund the annual PTA budget. Also, check if your employer has a matching program — you could double (or more) your donation!
* Bobcat Fund donations up to $125 will be entered in a raffle to win a CRS tote bag and car magnet (3 winners); $150 or more will be entered in a raffle for a popsicle party for your child’s class (2 winners). Donations of $250 or more will be entered in a raffle for a pizza party for your child’s class (1 winners)!
Contribute to Class Funds:
Please consider contributing $30 per child to your child's class fund, to cover the majority of costs for class celebrations, grade events, and other in-class activities.
Verify and Update your PTA Profile:
Set up your account on our website to receive relevant communications, be included in the CRS Directory, and ensure purchases get matched with the correct student(s). To be included in the directory, you must create a website account and complete the Family Information form and Directory Publish Preferences form. By creating an account, you'll also be signed up to receive class & grade updates from Room Parents.
*Note: Family Information must be reviewed and teacher must be added each year to maintain directory access and inclusion.
*Please note you will only be able to receive electronic communications from the PTA by creating/updating your profile.

NEW FAMILY BUDDY PROGRAM
In an effort to help welcome new families to the Churchill Road Elementary School community, the Buddy Program connects new families with a host 'Buddy Family'. If you are interested in volunteering as a host Buddy Family - or are a newly arrived family interested in signing up - don't be shy! As a new arrival family: you will get the benefit of an established Churchill family's insider knowledge – helping to make your transition to the Churchill community that little bit easier. It will also make sure the new kids know someone in the school, which always helps! For new families who would like to have a Buddy Family, please fill out the google form with the following information.
Student name, grade, teacher
Parent(s) name, email address
Where you moved from
Request a host family who speaks a specific language, if desired
It’s easy and fun! All we ask is the Buddy Families meet at least once – after that, it's up to you! As a host Buddy Family: you will help a new family become accustomed to both Churchill and McLean living, with friendly advice on what to expect as parents and students in the school and the wider community.
