Are you saving your boxtops. Our PTSO would love to use them to gather funds for our school. We already have raised over $6 from Boxtops! Just think if we could get all of our families involved how much we'd be able to raise for our Herons! Please bring your boxtops to an outing near you or check out Boxtops for Education app for an even easier way to save for our school! (see link below).

PTSO Wants to Hear From You

We appreciate every family's support as we begin working towards our goals. If you would like to donate more than money we'd also love to hear from you! Thank you to everyone for all that you do for the students and our school! Let's make CASC PTSO amazing this year!
