Central Elementary PTA
School Picture Central E-Blast

Back to School News: the evening of our first day

The Latest... Coming Up
Just a few notes….

*With our meeting on October 2 coming up – when we will vote on whether to move to being a PTO instead of a PTA – PLEASE DO NOT FILL OUT NOR RETURN THE PTA MEMBERSHIP FORMS that came home in backpack mail today.  Just recycle those – we’re sorry for our administrative blunder in sending them home.  PLEASE JOIN US at Back to School Night  on September 19, to learn about becoming a PTO, and then on October 2 to participate in the vote.

*Exrtracurriculars, extracurriculars….our Extracuriculars Chair, Robin Countryman, has been working hard to put together a great line-up of fall clubs and activities for CES families to consider.  In case you’ve missed the info, here are the choices we have so far:

Spanish Club

Chess Club

Coding Club

And finally….After School Yoga:  here and here.

*Lastly, for tonight, please remember to sign-up for ParentSquare.  Instructions are below, and we look forward to “seeing” you there!!!

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.
