At Carrboro Elementary, the PTA is a group of parents and staff who work closely together and with the administration to plan and organize school events (community building), raise funds for the school (fundraising), and support staff and families in whatever way is needed (advocacy).
Joining the PTA is just another way of showing your support for your child’s educational experience.
This Friday, September 1st, you should receive a color coded packet with several flyers on how to become engaged at Carrboro. We hope that you will consider joining the PTA in whatever way is a good fit for you. See the following links for more information! 
Please join us for the first PTA meeting of the year on Tuesday, September 19th from 6:30-8:00. We will provide an overview of the year, highlight upcoming events and new initiatives, pass the budget, discuss membership and volunteer opportunities as well as answer questions.  *Free childcare services will be provided.

Find a way to get involved that matches your interests and skills! We have room for everyone's hidden (and not-so-hidden) talents, as well as creative new ideas. Choose what you are passionate about and you will enjoy it at the same time that you make our school a better place!

Tuesday, September 5 (6 PM)

Back to School Night is a great opportunity for you to see your child's new classroom, meet other parents, and hear important information about the daily routine and what academic areas your child will be covering in the upcoming months. Each teacher will present information twice, so you will have time to visit two classes. Many teachers also use Back to School Night to explain general classroom policies, let you know the best way to reach them, and other key room information.
**This night is an informational session geared towards adults. Children are welcome to come, however childcare is not provided and your child must stay with you at all times.**

Wednesday, September 13 (5-10 PM)

Come join other Carrboro families on Wednesday September 13th from 5-10 PM for our first Spirit Night of the year at Carolina Brewery! 20% of all proceeds will be given back to the PTA.

Carolina Brewery is located at 460 W. Franklin Street in Chapel Hill

PTA Photo Fundraiser
October 14 & 15

The amazing Danell Beede Photography will be sponsoring a CES fundraiser. The 15 minute sessions will be $15 and all proceeds will go directly to the Carrboro PTA. Families can purchase different photo packages, ranging from 1 photo to all photos from the shoot. Sign up coming soon.

There are several outlets the PTA and CES communicate important and interesting information so families can know what is going on in the school, district and larger community.  Aside from the monthly newsletter, both the PTA and Carrboro Elementary School have their own websites, plus the school is also on both Facebook and Twitter. And as always check your child's Friday folder not only for news, but for class assignments and finished work.

Coffee with the Principal
Friday, September 15th (7:45 AM)

Please join us for the first Coffee with the Principal. Come to the art room for a lively discussion and conversation with Principal LaSerna. It is an opportunity for you to discuss any topic that you would like to raise -- your voice and participation is important.

CES Implements Restorative Practices Program
The International Institute for Restorative Practices (IIRP) defines the fundamental premise of restorative practices as “people are happier, more cooperative and productive, and more likely to make positive changes when those in positions of authority do things with them, rather than to them or for them.” To learn how CES will implement these fundamentals, please read here

What is advocacy?
"Advocacy is a constitutional right and a proud American tradition. It’s the most important opportunity, after voting, that Americans have to be involved in their government. PTA is one of the nation’s oldest and most successful advocacy organizations. PTA has been an advocate for children since 1897 and has always been at the forefront in supporting laws that benefit children. One PTA purpose is to secure adequate laws for the care and protection of children and youth.  North Carolina PTA members can fulfill this mission and help brighten the future of every child."
