Welcome Back to School

We’re excited to be kicking off another school year supporting our Bobcats and CRS community. We have great events coming up with Family Movie Night, the 25th Anniversary of the International Parade of Cuisines, Family Science Night, the Churchill 5K and more! And don't forget about your member benefits:

  • Discounts on PTA-sponsored family activities & CRS yearbook
  • Priority After-School Activities registration
  • Easy, online 'Go Home Notes' tool for scheduling early pickups, changing dismissal transportation, & hosting a play date

When renewing your membership, we hope you will also consider donating to the Bobcat Fund, our direct donation drive and #1 source of funds to support our children at CRS, and to the grade level Class Fund for your student(s), which funds the majority of class parties & grade events.

Proposed 2018-2019 CRS PTA Budget

Back to School Night is also our first general membership meeting of the year - we’ll be sharing our plans for this school year, including our proposed budget. We encourage you to review the details prior to Back to School Night. Questions? Contact Kristi West, CRS PTA President.

Thank You Volunteers

Thanks to everyone who volunteered as one of our ‘PTA elves’ delivering all the school supplies orders to every student’s classroom last week. Over 380 kits were delivered! And thank you to all the families who participated in our School Supplies program - 10% of every order comes back to your PTA to invest in our CRS Community. We raised just over $1300 dollars to invest this school year.
