Back to School Checklist
Be ready for a great school year at Churchill Road with our BTS Checklist for 2022-2023!
Step 1: Join the CRS PTA!
Membership is just $20 annually per family. Please support your child's education and get member perks like discounts on PTA-sponsored family activities & the CRS Yearbook, access to resources and help from our community, participate in special programs like Reflections, and more!
When joining the PTA (or renewing your membership), you may also do the following:
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!
Contribute to Class Funds:
Please consider contributing $25 per child to your child's class fund, to cover the majority of costs for class celebrations, grade events, and other in-class activities.
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).
*Please note you will only be able to receive electronic communications from the PTA by creating/updating your profile.
Preorder a Yearbook:
Take advantage of PTA member discount pricing and ensure that your student will receive a yearbook at the end of the school year.
Step 2: Verify and Update the CRS Directory
We make it easy to connect to other families through our online school directory. To be included, 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 updated each year to maintain directory access and inclusion.
