Membership Challenge


LEADERBOARD: We have a tie between 2nd and 4th grades at 67%!!  Great job!  1st grade is close behind.  Hmmmm.  Where are our upper classes?  Only 14 more days left in this challenge!

Join the CCCK-8 PTSA and your child’s classroom could win an ice cream party!  The classroom with the highest percentage of memberships by Sept 30 will win!  Your membership makes it possible for us to support classroom enrichment and fund a para-professional to help our teachers.  As a member, you also have a voice in how we prioritize what we are working on and how we spend our funds in a year.  For more information, see the attached flyer or contact Tami Lawson,  We appreciate your support!

Legislative Chair or Co-Chair

Are you passionate about politics?  Are you glued to the news and can’t wait to share what you heard with your friends and family?  If so, then we have a position for you!  Your CCCK8 PTSA is looking for a Legislative Chair or co-Chair.  Don’t let the title scare you!  We simply need someone to keep the PTSA and our school community informed of what is happening around education policy and politics.  This person would send regular updates about what is happening and be a resource to parents if they are curious about education policy.  We especially would like the help keeping families informed about our own school district, but you may expand to state or national education activity, if you want to.  This is especially important this year in the election year, and with the 3A/3B Mill & Bond Levy for the Jefferson County School District on the ballot.   This volunteer opportunity can be very short term as we need it particularly through the upcoming election.  After that, your level of effort is up to you!  Please contact Jody Dickson,, if you are interested.
