Final PTA Meeting on May 15th


Our last PTA meeting of the year will be on May 15th, and the topic is Summer Brain Gain. Mrs. Smith and others of our wonderful educators will discuss how to stay strong over the summer, including resources to help our kids remain engaged and active, and an overview of the CCES summer homework. We will also hold 2018-19 PTA elections at this meeting. This will require an amendment to the bylaws to allow us to hold elections in May rather than June, which we think is necessary now that the school year ends earlier. We still have positions to fill for next year, and would love to have you take part. Email me if you'd like to learn more, and either way, please join us on May 15th.

Cheetah Pride


It’s not too late to join the PTA and donate to the Cheetah Pride Campaign.  This fund pays for the many programs the PTA runs each year - Artists in Residence, teacher grants, curriculum enrichment programs, community events… many “extras” that are no longer paid for by the school district.  The suggested contribution is $120 per family, and it’s tax deductible..  That amount also covers the classroom fund (for parties) and a family PTA membership. We understand that $120 won’t work for everyone; some people can and will give more, and others less..  But we appreciate every contribution and know that as a community we will work together to fully fund our programs. Please donate online at   For more information and a printable donation form, visit

Any questions, please reach out to Tabitha Bailey, CCES Membership Chair at tabithambailey@....

Thank you for your support!
