The PTO would like to extend a HUGE Thank You to everyone that has supported us this past school year! We had a very successful year filled with lots of fun for everyone! We have a lot of fun, different ideas being planned for next year such as a Trunk or Treat event, a Paint Nite, and an “Adult Only” evening night out to name a few! Be sure to like and follow us on Facebook as we will be updating through the summer!

PTO Survey – The PTO Board meets over the summer and plans the upcoming school year’s events, fundraisers, etc. In helping us plan, we’d like to hear feedback and your thoughts and ideas. Please take a few minutes to fill out our online survey. It’s only 10 questions but your answers help us when it comes to planning the upcoming school year. Use this link to participate:

Box Tops – Don’t forget to keep clipping your Box Tops through the summer!

Shoparoo App – Don’t forget to keep using the Shoparoo App through the summer. We continue getting point to earn money through August 31st.

Volunteers Needed – We have various positions that need to be filled by volunteers! Most of these are currently being run by a person who is on their way out of CRS mostly because they have a 5th grader who will be leaving CRS to head to the middle school. We have many volunteer opportunities available throughout the year. Please keep in mind that where a chairperson is needed the duties can be divided between more than one person so grab a friend or two and try something new! Any amount of time you have is needed and appreciated. Please contact Angela Fredrickson, or the current chairperson for more information. Here is some of what we need:

  • Gift and Wrap Coordinator
  • School Carnival – Raffles Coordinator
  • Assemblies Coordinator
  • Field Day Coordinator
  • Yearbook Committee
  • Appreciation Committee – Shadow Needed
  • Scholarship Committee – Shadow Needed
  • Website Committee – Shadow Needed
  • Sporting Events/Restaurants Coordinator – Shadow Needed

Attention 5th Grade Parents – A note to 5th grade parents. You may not be aware, but the PTO pays for the entire 5th grade field trip to Boston, which in the past has included the parent chaperones. Unfortunately, due to rising costs, we will now be asking the chaperones to pay for their tickets. However, the PTO will waive the chaperone fee to any parents who volunteer at least 3 hours of their time at one of our many events! Please understand that the PTO does NOT pick the parents that get to chaperone. That is up to the discretion of the teacher and the “way” they choose their chaperones. The PTO board can only keep track of who will need to pay their way or who will have the fee waived. Volunteering your time does NOT guarantee you will be a chaperone.

PTO Money – The PTO has such an important job when it comes to funding and planning out the school year! We try to plan a lot of fun events as well as support our teachers and staff at Center Road School. And yes, we do this through fundraising and some would say a lot of fundraising! But it all goes towards making your children’s elementary school years as fun as possible! So, ever wonder just what we do with the money we raise? Well click here is a brief description of all the wonderful things the PTO does.

Attention PTO Committee Chairs – In order to help volunteers run future PTO events/fundraisers, we’re creating a place on our PTO website where anyone can go to view what is involved in a particular event. If you have chaired a PTO event, please email Angela Fredrickson, and provide any information about that particular event (i.e. do you send a flyer home with students, does it involve a permission slip being signed, do you need the building form completed, etc.)
