The ABCs of Room Parents

The ABCs of Room Parents:
Activities: A room parent is involved with coordinating fun activities for the class throughout the year. You will help to arrange PowerTimes, the classroom holiday party, and end of year party! You can attend every event, or work with other parents in your class to take turns.
Be Available: A room parent will help their teacher to find volunteers for events, field trips, school supplies or projects. Most of this can be done by email at home!
Communicate: A room parent serves as a liaison between the PTO and the classroom to pass along important information about upcoming events or deadline reminders.
We hope that you’ll sign-up to be a room parent for 2017-2018! For those that do, the only meeting of the year will be held September 8th from 9:30-10:30am in the cafeteria.

Save time at Open House this Thursday!


Want to save time at Open House this Thursday? You can fill out the school’s information form now (one time for each student at CES)! This information will be used by teachers and staff, and to create the PTO directory. Like last year, the PTO directory will be digital through Directory Spot. Only phone numbers and emails will be included. If you do not wish to have your information included in Directory Spot, you can opt out on this form. Access to the directory will be restricted to PTO members, so be sure to join by visiting the PTO table during Open House or completing the membership form that will come home with students the first week of school.

To complete the school information form, go to:
