Take our Survey!

Give us your feedback and help us identify the best opportunities to improve our family - school partnership this year. We'll ask for your feedback again in May to evaluate our progress! This survey is part of the National PTA's School of Excellence program. The survey is really quick (no open ended questions!) and all responses are anonymous. Survey closes 10/1. 


Go Home Notes

Go Home Notes are back next Monday! This easy, online system enables our PTA members to schedule an early pickup, transportation change, or submit a request for your child to go home with a friend (or bring one friend home) with just a few clicks. Find more information here - to access the Go Home Note system, you'll need to log-in with your PTA account and then your Go Home Note user ID and password (new users can create an account).

Reminder - make sure you submit before 8 AM each day and don't forget to update your child's grade, teacher & mode of transportation.


Fall After School Activities - Start Next Week

Don't forget the fall session of ASA classes & clubs kicks off next week! Make sure you have reviewed the ASA dismissal procedures (same as last school year). Learn more. 


Reflections

Just over one month to go until Reflections contest entries are due! This National PTA program is open to every student at CRS. We're looking forward to seeing all the amazing creativity! Categories include dance choreography, film production, literature, music composition, photography, and visual arts. Learn more.

Don't forget to check if your donation might be eligible for matching with your employer - you could double or more your donation! Learn more.
