PTA News

Dear Parents,

I am reaching out to encourage all of you to join the PTA as your financial assistance helps fund many of CTES’ programs, materials and technologies that make our school what it is.  Currently, only 52% of CTES’ student body is represented on the PTA.  We want this to grow and are asking each of you to consider filling out a CTES Cub Club & PTA Membership Form (please see attached pdf document).  In addition, forms can also be found in the main office.  Please fill out the form with payment and send in with your child’s folder.  I can tell you that our teachers and staff are committed in providing the necessary support and resources to enhance both the classroom and overall school experience for all our students.  To learn more about what the CTES Cub Club Donations do for our school, please click on the video.  Help us increase the representation of our student body by joining the PTA and giving what you can to our students.

  • DID YOU KNOW: Only $2 out of the $10 PTA Membership dues stays within CTES, the remaining goes to pay for the County, State and National PTAs.
  • DID YOU KNOW: Every dollar of Cub Club donations (above the $10 membership dues) goes directly to CTES.

 

I also encourage you to visit the PTA website for more information on the types of activities and events your Membership dues and Cub Club Donations go towards.

If you have any questions, please contact me or our PTA VP-Membership, TJ Colombell at thomas.j.colombell@dominionenergy.com

Thank you for your continued support and with your help, we will certainly make a difference.
