Donations – How You Can Help
On behalf of the Central Arroyo PTA, we welcome back our returning families as well as our new families to the Central Arroyo community! We are excited to work alongside a very talented group of teachers, staff, administrators, and parents.
By Our goal is to make things as easy as possible for our families. In an effort to streamline our fundraising efforts, we are asking for a one-time donation of $250 per family. This approach means that we can shift focus of our Stampede & Soar fun run to being a community-building event, open to all students and family members, vs. a fundraiser.
This change also enables our PTA to efficiently budget and plan programs based on funds raised early in the school year.
All funds will benefit both CMS and Arroyo, supporting programs such as Art in Action, teacher and library grants, and staff appreciation, among many other things. We encourage you to make a donation join the PTA, and volunteer to get involved.
Stampede & Soar Fun Run
Central Mustangs will stampede and Arroyo Eagles will soar through San Carlos to help raise funds from local businesses for our joint PTA. The fun run is open to all students and is traditionally held in the fall. More info on this event for 2017-18 to come soon!
