Let's Make the 2022-23 School Year Amazing!

With the last few years the way they were, we are REALLY hoping we will be able to get back to in person events with kids and families on a regular basis. We hope to really build that community feeling again, with parent get-togethers, summer playdates for kids, fun STEM & Literacy events, Math Challenge, After School Enrichment, etc.

Over the last couple years, many of our "seasoned" PTA leaders have already moved up to middle school - or will at the end of this year. We will need to really think about what we want to do next school year! Time to come up with fresh ideas and get new families involved.

We also have LOTS of new families joining Canyon Creek for the EAP program - and we would LOVE to get those families involved in our PTA and community! The more volunteers we have, the more amazing programs/events we can have and the more cohesive and robust community we can build. 

FUNDRAISING CHAIR/COMMITTEE NEEDED:

We really need to find someone or a group of people who will work on fundraising event(s) for our PTA. We can only run the events and programs, if we have funding, and we need help to get that going. Things like Helping Hands, Staff Appreciation, STEM Night, and even printing flyers, require funding. Please reach out to the PTA President ASAP if you are interested in helping out.
