Orders Due: November 15th

We are excited to offer Central families the opportunity to purchase from the coveted Yankee catalogs in time for the holiday gifting season!  The SCRATCH 'n SNIFF catalogs feature candles, cookware, and other great gift ideas!

This is not a student sale, which means we aren't asking you to send your kids out knocking on doors to get sales.  We are just making these products available to those who wish to purchase for gifts or personal use!  

All orders must be submitted online, and all orders will ship directly to the customer.  We will not accept cash or check at school for this sale and there will be no order pickup at school.  There is no minimum order and the PTO earns 40% of sales back in cash!

Join us in the cafeteria!  Free childcare is provided by a Central teacher.

There are never any dues or fees to be a part of the Central PTO! Our meetings are casual roundtable discussions about recent and upcoming events at our school. They are a great opportunity to meet other parents, talk to school staff, and learn about what our organization does.

Our principal plus at least one K-2 and one 3-5 teacher will be present at each meeting to facilitate excellent parent and teacher communication.

Meetings are typically less than one hour.

December 2nd - 6th
During School

Stay tuned for volunteer sign ups!

At Central's annual Santa Shop, students can shop for gifts for family members and friends!

Every item is only $1 (no sales tax), and students are welcome to purchase up to 10 items during their class shopping time.  

Our friends in need will be given a small courtesy budget to shop with courtesy of the PTO.
