Introducing our 2019-2020 PTSO Board

After a tough election, with so many people fighting for the chance to participate, we are pleased to announce our new board for the 2019-20 school year.  We all look forward to working with each other and for the many opportunities for all of our parents (and grandparents), guardians and community to join us in the fun starting in August!

President: Crista McEuen
VP Marketing: Cori Tinney
VP’s of Events: Esther Brown and Andrea Krzesinski
VP’s of Hospitality: Andy Milam and Tracy Milam
Secretary: Christy Boyd
Treasurer: Cat Harper
Thank you to all of our “retiring” PTSO members and SUPER volunteers!  An incredibly large thank you to Jessica Nelson for being an outstanding VP of Hospitality and keeping our teachers well treated all year long (but this is not goodbye- we hope to see you often on Sign-Up Genius)!  And a special shout out to our very own Dana Fredericks.  Your time and effort this year (and the years past) was greatly appreciated.  Your dedication to ensuring every event was spectacular for all our coyote cubs was tremendous and won’t easily be forgotten!  Have fun in your future endeavors and we hope to see you (if we can’t convince you to volunteer) at next year’s Carnival!! 😉

Teacher Appreciation Week

We  our teachers!  Spend the week letting them know how INCREDIBLE and SUPER and AMAZING they are!

Motivational Monday: handwritten notes are a teacher’s heart’s kryptonite.  Have your child write a letter to any or all teachers and we just may see the glow shining over CRRE from all of the smiles generated.

Teach Me to Grow Tuesday:  give a gift of plants or flowers to show gratefulness for the growth your child has experienced this year.

Wonderful Wednesday: What a wonderful day for a special treat or drink gift.

All about the Classroom Thursday: Restock your teachers’ classroom supply stash. Don’t let them ever be without the mighty (EXPO or Sharpie) pen or (tissues and hand sanitizer) shield.

Fun Friday: It’s always fun to recognize a great teacher with a small token of appreciation.  Even a $5 gift card to their fav restaurant or store shows that we recognize the heroic efforts teachers make every day.
