Set Central School as your charity through Amazon Smile

Though we encourage everyone to support our amazing downtown right now and to shop local, if you are going to shop from Amazon, please set Central School as your charity through Amazon Smile. It’s so easy to do and Amazon then donates a small portion of eligible purchases to Central. 

 

The one catch is that it will only make that donation if you make your purchase through Amazon Smile, not Amazon. However, you can now turn on Amazon Smile in the app as well as shopping Amazon Smile on the computer! Open the app and find ’Settings’ in the main menu (). Tap on ‘AmazonSmile’ and follow the on-screen instructions to turn on AmazonSmile on your phone. Please also consider sharing with your Friends & Family.  Click here to link directly in support of Central School, or go to smile.amazon.com and enter 32279 Central School PTA in the "pick your own charitable organization" search box. 

 

AmazonSmile is a simple and automatic way for you to support Central School every time you shop, at no cost to you. When you shop at smile.amazon.com,it is the same thing as shopping at Amazon.com with the added bonus that Amazon will donate a portion of the purchase price to Central School. You use the same account on Amazon.com and AmazonSmile. Your shopping cart, Wish List, wedding or baby registry, Prime status and other account settings are also all the same!

 

Thank you for supporting our school!!

Opt in for Room Parent Communications

In order to receive Room Parent communication, you will need to opt-in to Room Parent communication. Please review the PTA email newsletter for specific links to each classroom's google form. Please fill out your student’s designated teacher’s form so your room parents can be in touch. These forms are teacher specific so if you have multiple children, you need to fill out your child's designated teachers form.

PTA Membership - Sign up Today!
We understand that this year is going to look very different, and will present many challenges for our teachers, staff and families. Please know that the PTA is here to support our entire school community. Many of our traditional activities will be modified or cancelled, and we will try to find new ways to bring our community together. We appreciate your support in this effort, and realize that everyone has differing concerns during this time. We would love the support of those who are able to do so. This is an annual donation/membership. Please visit our MemberHub website to pay your dues at https://centralschoolpta.memberhub.store.  If you have any questions regarding membership, please contact Ellen Duncan at ead60@hotmail.com.

-------------------
Sign up for PTA Communications!

Central Elementary School does not share your email address with the PTA.  In order to be included in emails from the Central PTA regarding PTA activities and volunteer opportunities, you must opt-in each school year.  Please opt-in here.  


-------------------
School Spirit Days

Central School Spirit Days are celebrated each month (usually the first Friday starting in October). Order your Spirit Wear in time for our first Spirit Day!  Place your orders here.

 

We appreciate you supporting our elementary school with your orders! 

 

If you need assistance regarding spiritwear please feel free to reach out to the PTA spirit committee. Jessica Silvestri - silvestrifamily45@gmail.com Holly Silvestri - hollysilvestri22@gmail.com.
