Movie Night

Movie night is this Friday! Get ready for an evening of fun with family & friends. Tickets are on sale online until 5 p.m. on Thursday - order by then to take advantage of your PTA member discount!


Calling all artists! It's time for the 50th National PTA Reflections art contest! Students can submit original artwork around the theme, "Heroes Around Me", in any or all of these categories: dance choreography, film production, literature, music composition, photography, and visual arts. Entries will be collected in the front office in October - deadline is Friday, October 26. 

Corporate Matching - Double Your Donation!

Thanks to everyone who has already donated to the Bobcat Fund - we are over 70% to our goal of $48,000. The Bobcat Fund is our direct donation drive and primary fundraiser to support our children's academic experience at CRS. Don't forget to check if your employer does corporate matching - you could double or more your donation! Some companies also offer volunteer grant programs. Thank you for your support!
