This is a way for CSPTO to collect monetary donations for the raffle baskets. If you would like to donate an item for the basket, you can send that in to school with your child.
It is helpful if you donate directly to your child's class. That way we can make sure your donation gets where you would like it to go. Please select their class from the "Select a Team" list.
More about CSPTO below:
The Center School PTO (CSPTO) is all Center families, caregivers and staff. There are no membership dues to join. All are welcome-- and our success relies on the generous support of community donors and volunteers like you! Our mission is to sponsor enrichment activities and fun-filled events for the Center School students through a partnership of families & school staff. The CSPTO involves all caregivers working together to build community and enrich our children’s elementary years.
While school budgets provide the basic structure for student instructional support, in order to ensure equity, those budgets often do not provide additional funds for enrichment or supplementary programs. The CSPTO sponsors a variety of enrichment programs to enhance & support learning throughout the year. These programs support teachers and staff and align with curriculum and frameworks.
Our school's parents & caregivers are from varying backgrounds and skills, with knowledge and connections to the school, community, and local businesses. We leverage these connections to solicit the means (financial or efforts) to bring ideas to reality. They help us research, schedule, and fund enrichment activities & supplies for students and teachers.
The CSPTO also promotes strong community & equity by organizing events for all students, teachers, and their families. The enrichment of education at our school by building a community that supports each other, allows us to sponsor various activities that will make our school a better place for children, teachers, administrators, and parents to work together to provide an excellent education for students.
For the past 2 decades, CSPTO has brought in multiple programs and/or supports for every grade level at the school, as well as the school as a whole. We have consistently supported families in need, granted former students scholarships, and provided teachers with classroom enhancements. We are committed to the continued success of our organization, because we are committed to the success of the Center School community.
