Step 1: Join the CRS PTA!

Membership is just $20 annually per family. Support our children’s education and get member perks like discounts on PTA sponsored family activities & the CRS Yearbook, priority registration for After School Activities, easy online scheduling of dismissal changes & play dates with Go Home Notes, & more! When joining the PTA (or renewing your family's membership): you may also do the following:

  • Donate to the Bobcat Fund: The Bobcat Fund is our direct-donation drive and supports all the fun stuff that makes CRS an exciting and thriving school - including academic enrichment, teacher support, technology upgrades, family events, & more! A donation of $100 per child is ideal, but your gift of ANY size is GREATLY appreciated. Check if your employer has a matching program - you could double (or more) your donation!
  • Contribute to Class Funds: Please consider contributing $25 per child to your child's class fund, which will cover the majority of costs for class celebrations, grade events, & other activities.
  • Update your PTA Profile: Keep your information up-to-date to ensure that you receive relevant communications & that your purchases are matched with the correct student(s).
  • Pre-order a Yearbook: Take advantage of discount pricing and ensure that your student will receive a yearbook at the end of the school year, before they are sold out.

Step 2: Verify and Update the CRS Directory

The CRS PTA provides a school directory free of charge to all CRS families, teachers, and staff. Returning families need to validate & update their information each year, while new families will need to register. Messages from our Room Parents are sent through this system - so make sure your contact info is up-to-date! Learn more.

Step 3: Learn How to Earn Money to Support CRS! For FREE!

You can support CRS with your everyday shopping, via our programs with our grocery card programs (Giant, Harris Teeter), Amazon, eScrip, ShutterflyTiny Prints & more! CRS receives close to $10,000 each year from these programs, but only if our families participate. Plus don't forget to turn in those Box Tops! Learn more.
