PTO Update

The CES PTO needs YOU! Jessie Heath will be stepping down at the end of the school year as president. Jessie is happy to help the new president as they learn the role. We are also looking for a co-treasurer. Meghan Glines has been acting as our treasurer for years! This upcoming school year will be her last, so we would like to have a co-treasurer to learn the ropes under Meghan’s guidance. The PTO is an amazing group of parents and teachers that work together to do great things for the kids at Canterbury Elementary! Please consider running for a leadership role on our team!

The CES PTO meets the second Thursday of every month. Our next meeting is May 11, 2023 at 6:30 PM in the library at CES. This is a time change just for this month! Please come and join us as we plan upcoming events! If you have any questions, please email Jessie Heath, PTO Chair, at
