A Message from the PTA President

On behalf of the 2020-2021 Carlisle PTA board, I would like to extend a warm welcome to all new and returning families. This school year will truly be unlike any other; with a positive mindset and thinking outside the box, we can come together and make it a successful one. 


Although our students began our school year remotely, we want you to know our PTA is just as committed to our students, families, staff and community as we have been in the past. Many of our beloved programs and events have been put on hold due to the current health crisis, but know that PTA is working hard to find ways to enrich our students’ experiences regardless of where our students are engaged in their learning. PTA always welcomes suggestions, ideas, and feedback to help us accomplish our goals and objectives.  Given our current circumstances, PTA will have to shift our focus to the new needs of the students and our school as a whole.


Carlisle PTA proudly serves as a bridge between home and family and our mission is to support and strengthen Carlisle Elementary while helping our students reach their full potential.  We will continue to keep you informed and be a resource of information for families.  This year, our school needs your help more than ever to help achieve our mission. If you care about our schools and community then you belong in PTA and ANYONE can join.  There is no experience necessary, and you can choose your level of involvement. We encourage you to join the largest volunteer child advocacy organization.


If you are not intending to be a member of our PTA at this time, we still would like to provide you with up-to-date information within our community. Please update or enter your information on our website, subscribe to our newsletter, and join our Carlisle PTA Facebook page.

Thank you for your continued patience and grace as we navigate the year ahead and adjust to a new normal.  I look forward to a year of growth and learning for our students and together we can make this a great year for our Carlisle community. Wishing you all the best for the year ahead.  


WE ARE CARLISLE STRONG...and we are stronger together!


Please don’t hesitate to reach out to myself or our board for any questions or concerns.
