Another School Year Wraps Up!

Thanks to the families, community partners, and teachers and staff at the Crested Butte Community School for another incredible year. More than 251 of you volunteered, contributing more than 2,250 hours to the school!! What an incredible experience for our children to see so many grownups showing up for them. They will no doubt carry this love with them as they journey into adulthood. 

A huge shoutout to the Leadership Team, the Room Parents, the volunteers and donors, and all who have made the PTA  experience so fun, energizing, and rewarding. You really put the “YAY” in PTA. And our biggest thanks goes to the teachers and staff on the front lines every day, nurturing our dearest young people.

We’ll see you back in August. Have a wonderful summer!

Thank You and Annual Impact from PTA

Engage

The PTA (Parent-Teacher Association), at its core, is about engaging and connecting parents and families with teachers and the school community. More than 85 research studies conducted over the past 30 years prove that kids do better when parents are involved. Grades are higher. Test scores improve. Attendance increases.

Empower

To ensure each child’s potential to thrive, we recognize that our school, its teachers and staff, and the families within our school, may need additional resources beyond what our state budget allows. When students and teachers are equipped and empowered, they have the potential to thrive.

Advocate

PTA is the oldest and largest child advocacy association in America. Today, the issues that affect our children extend beyond their individual schools. PTAs provide parents with the forum and tools to collectively influence the decisions that affect children not only at their schools but also throughout their districts, within their states, and across the nation. 

The PTA has been a constant support in my classroom.  They are always offering to help, providing opportunities for additional funds to sponsor innovative projects, they are a positive presence in the school and provide useful resources to teachers.  ~ CBCS Teacher

We appreciate EVERYTHING that you do to support teachers and staff.  We feel very loved and supported by you all.  ~ CBCS Teacher

The Memory Project, which the PTA funds, connects our students with children from another part of the world by drawing portraits of the kids and then sending the art to the kids.  It creates some cultural awareness of how different our lives are from other people around the world.  ~ CBCS Teacher

Without the PTA, I would definitely feel alone in all of this.

Love the staff luncheons, coffee cart, massages, and chiropractic care.  ~ CBCS Teacher

Thank you very much for all the work you do, it’s greatly appreciated!!!!

The teacher wellness program has been so amazing!  After a long day/week, it is so nice to walk down to the library and take a yoga class or have a 15-30 minute restorative treatment once a month.  I look forward to it all month long!  I usually don’t leave the school until much later than 3:45 because I am still working, so it makes it hard to schedule anything during the school week.

The volunteers in the school this year were awesome!

Thank you for supporting me financially (classroom supplies) and emotionally (the coffee and food that boosts my morale)!  It is so nice to feel valued and supported.

Just a thousand thank yous!  Your support is felt and it matters.

Thank you for celebrating our staff and helping us continually.  From meals that have been provided to volunteers packing lunches to volunteers in the lunchroom, I have never seen such a supportive PTA.  Thank you!

The CBCS PTA is awesome.  They are so supportive of teachers and think of great ways to help us feel appreciated.
