CFES PTO Information Flip Book-- A Must Read!

The PTO has put together an all-inclusive information packet for you to review. We know time is of the essence, so we’d like to bring your attention to a few important details that will summarize the packet.

  • Who we are, what we do and how to get in touch with us!
  • How to donate to our booster! Donations are accepted all year long.
  • Our request for volunteers to help plan and run the events that your children love to attend. Sign up for an event!

Please note that we offer many opportunities to volunteer that accommodate all schedules. Read through the committees and events to decide where you would like to volunteer a little time.

Welcome back to school! Please consider volunteering as a homeroom parent for your child’s classroom this year. This is a wonderful opportunity to partner with your child’s teacher and get to know the parents of your child’s classmates.

Responsibilities include:

  • Distribution of communications to parents in the classroom

  • Coordination of classroom parties, special events, and field trip chaperones

  • Capture (or delegate responsibilities to capture) pictures of the children in the classroom throughout the year for inclusion in the yearbook

Classes typically need two homeroom parents to easily distribute the responsibilities. A drawing will be used if more names are submitted than are needed.

*NOTE: Current volunteer clearances MUST be up to date (in case guidance for parents entering into the building changes during this year).

Please sign up using this LINK by Friday, September 16th.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to email me at

Thank you in advance for volunteering for this special job.
