  • Freddy’s Night- Monday, May 9th from 5:00-9:00 pm will be our last restaurant night for the school year! Mention you are with CTE and our school will get 15% of the sales for the evening.

  • Teacher Appreciation Week is May 2nd-6th! A note with our teacher and staff’s favorites was sent home. We would love your help in letting our teachers know how much we love and appreciate them!

  • THANK YOU’s- We want to say thank you if you were able to make it out to our Spangles Night! We appreciate you!

  • Amazon Teacher Wish Lists: Want to help provide things for the classrooms but don’t know what teachers need? We have set up a wish list for each of our teachers to fill out as they have needs through Amazon. If you are interested, please see our PTO Facebook page.

  • BOXTOPS!! Since the Boxtop company has switched from clipping BoxTops to scanning your receipt through their app, we have seen a drastic decrease in participation. PLEASE consider downloading the APP and taking the time to scan your receipt when you shop! It’s super simple and helps our schools a lot!

Thank you for all your support! It really does MAKE A DIFFERENCE!


The Vision and Purpose of Circle USD 375, in partnership with our communities, is to educate each student to be an engaged, knowledgeable citizen and responsible, productive worker in the 21st Century.
