Get Plugged In To PTO

Dear Kindergarten & New Families,

Your CTE PTO wants to make sure you know how to get “plugged in” this year!  Please read through the opportunities below:

July Look for a link to be emailed requesting volunteers for Media Center, POPS & specific PTO events throughout the year such as:  Family Fun Nights, Parents & Pastries, Grand-Persons Breakfast, Book Fair, ELF workshop, Hospitality, & Teacher Appreciation Week.  The lists generated are distributed to PTO general board chairs for the year so this link is really important to consider!

August Look for a Room Parent callout! 

Throughout The School Year Here are other PTO events that cannot run without volunteers:  Cherry Blossom Festival (250-300 volunteers needed), Lego & Math Clubs, Science Fair, and Wellness Wednesdays! Need more details? Email us at

January-March We will begin filling 2018-2019 PTO board positions.  PLEASE consider, as CTE PTO needs a rotating group of volunteers to keep things fresh.

May Look for a link to be emailed requesting volunteers for our beginning of the school year activities such as: hospitality, school tours, CTE Ice Cream Social, and school supply distribution.
