Ice Cream Social & Basket Raffle Details


Join the fun on Thursday, Oct 6th from 4:30-7:30! Remember to select a preferred arrival time. This will help us anticipate the crowd, staff accordingly and allow you plenty of time to eat and visit the Raffle Baskets.

We still need a few Volunteers to help scoop and serve from 5-7pm, as well for our cleanup crew! Please sign up to help.


$1 for 1 ticket, $10 for 15 Tickets, $20 for 35 tickets

Buy tickets online, purchase at the Ice Cream Social or fill out the form sent home with your child and return to school. Online purchasers should fill out the virtual ticket entry form or send the form in to indicate basket selections or come to the Social to make their selections.

Winners will be drawn after the Ice Cream Social on 10/6 and posted on the CSPTO Facebook page by 10/10. We'll contact winners via email/phone to coordinate pickup of their prize. YOU CAN WIN MORE THAN ONCE!

Picture Day is Oct 14th

Save the date! Picture Day is just around the corner on Friday 10/14. Keep an eye out for an email from Geskus with instructions to order online. Please note ordering will ONLY BE AVAILABLE ONLINE THIS YEAR.

Did you know Picture Day is a fundraiser for the school? A percentage of what you purchase is gifted back to us to support our enrichment programs. Hooray!

THANK YOU to our volunteers, we are fully staffed for this activity!

Trunk or Treat is 10/22

Our super-fun family Halloween event is back on October 22nd from 1-3pm. Dress up your gang, trick out your trunk, and have a spooky good time! NO TICKETS NEEDED THIS YEAR. Rain date will be 10/29.

We need Cars and Helpers on the day of the event. Sign up to Spook Out your car or help us run a successful event! Thanks to our Coordinators, Erica Thornton and Gerard Wilson!

Get to Know the PTO Board

With many new board members this year and a return to more normal times, we thought it would be fun to share a little more about the PTO Board members so when you see us at events or at school, don't hesitate to come up and say hello or ask us about PTO events or activities. Each week we'll feature a different board member.

Next up is returning co-secretary Amy Tatton!
