Carlisle Elementary PTA

_________________________________________

 

We are very excited to have you here at Carlisle Elementary.  You will love being a Coyote!

Please click on MY PTA ACCOUNT on the left hand side to update your child’s information, parent information, sign up for volunteer opportunities, order spirit wear, school supplies and yearbooks.  

One of our goals as a PTA this year is to increase our PTA membership and involvement thru keeping our members informed with what is going on in our school.  Please remember to sign up through this PTA website http://www.carlislepta.org/  so you can receive these emails and updates.

This year we are offering discounted Spirit Wear to PTA members.  To get the discounted price, you will need to purchase your PTA membership and fully checkout. Then when you go back to MY PTA ACCOUNT you will see the discounted rates for PTA members.  Just a nice perk for PTA members!

Please consider volunteering your time or talent (or both!) with the PTA this year.  There are numerous opportunities throughout the year and the kids love seeing their parent working with them at school, or at home on school activities that directly impact them.   That is what the PTA is all about….Parents and Teachers working together for our children!

Continue to check out our website throughout the school year to get the most up to date information.

Please don’t hesitate to call on me with any questions, suggestions, or comments you might have.  It takes a village to run the PTA…so I welcome all your thoughts!
