The Latest... Coming Up

PTA to PTO

Please plan to join the CES PTA Executive Board on Monday, October 2nd at 9:30am for a General Membership meeting.  We will be voting to transition our status from PTA to PTO.

Fall Yoga is Back!

Afterschool Yoga is back this fall!  Your children will learn to strengthen their growing bodies and fire up their imaginations.  Yoga will be held on Tuesdays for 3rd-5th grades and Thursdays for K-2nd grades.  Please see attached flyers for K-2 and 3-5 for more information or contact Robin Countryman at robin@wholekidsyoga.com if you have any questions.

First School Spirit Night

Our first Spirit Night will be on the very first day of school (9/5).  Celebrate the new year at Sweet Frog in Edgewater.  The hours are 4pm-9pm.  Be sure to mention Central Elementary and 25% of proceeds will go to the PTA!

Update on ParentSquare:

A county-wide memorandum released by the Board of Ed has restricted the use of certain applications, based on their terms of service. As such, we will not be using ParentSquare as a parent/teacher tool this year.

We WILL however, be using ParentSquare as a PTA communications hub to eventually replace this eBlast, the CES PTA Facebook page, and Sign Up genius.  In the future, important school events dates/calendar, club announcements, fundraising opportunities AND PTA sign ups will occur within ParentSquare. All school PTA information will now be sent to your computer or phone via email and/or text, or you can download the free app (iphone & android) which allows you to quickly view upcoming events!

WHO?
Parents of active Central Elementary students ONLY. We need you to opt-in to join the site.  EVERY parent can have their own account on ParentSquare, so get your spouse/co-guardian signed up too!

HOW?
In order to join this community, YOU MUST OPT-IN.
Visit http://www.parentsquare.com and request an invitation to join the community by selecting LEARN MORE, scroll down where you see ‘Wait! Are you a Parent?’ and click Sign up here.
