Square 1 Art – Square 1 Art is coming soon! Enjoy your child’s artwork on memorable keepsakes to be cherished for years. Order forms will be sent home in early November. The order deadline is November 14 and the art will be ready for pick up in time for holiday gift giving. Please reach out to Lisa Traska, or Cindy Craft, if you have any questions.

Volunteers Needed – New this year, we are offering an incentive to volunteer – $25 gift card or $50 restaurant/movie combo gift card. Every time you volunteer, you get entered into the drawing. Drawing 2x a year, Dec/May. 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 tow and try something new! Any amount of time you have is needed and appreciated.

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!

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.

Shutterfly – How exciting! We have teamed up with Shutterfly to help fundraise for our school! Whenever you place an order with Shutterfly, use this link before beginning your order. As long as you use our link, Shutterfly will donate 13% of each sale to our school! Great for pictures, gifts, invitations, and Christmas cards! You are still able to use coupons and promotions as you would normally do.  It’s just now, you’re helping raise funds for your child’s school!

Shoparoo / Amazon Smile – One of the easiest ways to earn money for our school is to download the Shoparoo app, create an account, snap a picture of your receipts, and just like that earn money! Don’t forget to use Amazon Smile! If you’re making purchases on Amazon go to and under the Supporting tab designate us, Parent Booster USA Inc. Center Road School PTO, and with each purchase Amazon will automatically donate .5% of the sale to us! If you add a bookmark to Amazon Smile it’ll be even easier to return and start your shopping next time! Click here for more information.

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.)
