What is PTA?

PTA is you! Parents, teachers, and staff have a fantastic partnership at Center Street.

How are the funds we raise spent?
Many ways including the following:

  • Smartboards and document cameras in ALL classrooms
  • iPads and laptops in the classrooms
  • First Day of School Coffee
  • Room Parent and Teacher luncheon
  • Field trips and assemblies for all grade levels
  • Family education nights
  • Grades of Green Program
  • Cougar Patch/Garden
  • Character Counts
    And much more – check out our Programs page for more information…and Volunteer page for other ways to help.

For the past couple of years, CSS PTA has been able to gift at least $100,000 back to our school for improvements, teacher training, needed equipment, and more to benefit our students.

Come to our PTA meetings the 3rd Wednesday of every month, alternating between evening and day meetings.
