PTO

Welcome from the 2020-2021 CCA PTO


ABOUT US

The CCA Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) is a group of parents dedicated to enhancing your student’s experience and wellbeing by collaborating to embody in our school mission statement: 

“Motivated students and responsible parents working together with exemplary teachers for excellent education.” 

We strive to build community by engaging and empowering our parents with many opportunities to be involved. In addition, the PTO contributes to the school in various ways.  Past school year contributions include procuring tablets, a 3D printer, e-readers, water bottle filler stations, and a new scoreboard. This year we will provide welcome back goodie bags for teachers and students.  Due to Covid-19 our year will look different, rest assured we will follow our district and school guidelines and support our community in every way possible.

HOW DECISIONS ARE MADE

Each parent or guardian of a CCA student is automatically a voting PTO member. We conduct our General Assembly Meetings virtually the third Friday of each month from 9:05 am – 10:00 am. We encourage all parents to attend and become actively involved. At each meeting, we have CCA teacher representation, a presentation from our administrators, a report from the Student Council, and updates from our CCA Parent Board.  

Our first General Assembly PTO Meeting will be held virtually 

Friday, September 18 th 2020 at 9:05 AM

We hope you can attend and learn more about our PTO. If you cannot attend these meetings but want to get involved, please see below for the various available volunteer opportunities. 

WHERE THE FUNDS COME FROM

  • 2020-2021 Events will vary from years past due to Covid-19 restrictions. We are working toward virtual options for events in 2020-2021.  Past  PTO Giving Circles provided access to the following events: School Assemblies, Field Day food and games, Fall Carnival, Winter Masquerade Ball, Spring Multicultural Festival, and Parent Breakfasts (Pastries with Parents), among other PTO events.   

  • PTO Fundraisers allow us to provide items that are beyond the CCA annual budget such as student agendas, new student welcome activities, classroom stipends for teachers, and appreciation events for teachers, staff, and administration. 

  • Partnerships with community organizations are the last avenue for our budget. These companies provide a % back to our school for just doing what you normally do- buying groceries, buying gift (scrip) cards, collecting Box Tops, shopping on Amazon, and more!   


METHODS OF COMMUNICATION

The PTO is committed to effective communications with the CCA community. All upcoming PTO meetings, events, and volunteer opportunities will be listed and communicated through the weekly CCA newsletter The Eagle, posted on CCA’s website and CCA Facebook page.  If you have questions or concerns regarding the PTO or PTO sponsored events please reach out to  PTO@CherryCreekAcademy.org and we’ll make sure your questions are directed to the correct person.
