Emails can be sent to cambridgeptopresident@gmail.com. We’ll print these off for our teachers to read. The deadline for all letters is Friday, August 14.

It's simple! Click on My Account and scroll down to click on My Forms/Paperwork. Now click on Family Information.  Scroll down and click Next Step.  This next page is your student(s) information.  You will be able to update the teacher information here.

 

2019-20 YEARBOOK UPDATE

 
 

We apologize for the delay on getting these yearbooks into your hands, but our publisher was closed for Covid-19 which caused a delay in printing. We should have an update from the publisher in the next few days, and will send out an email with details as soon as we can. We appreciate your patience.  

 

GET INVOLVED AS A PTO VOLUNTEER

 
 

Throughout the school year, the PTO's success is dependent on our team of parent and community volunteers. Whether you are chairing a Cambridge fundraiser (come on, you know you want to!) or volunteering for an hour at Book Fair or Bike Rodeo, our volunteers are vital to our organization. Please take a look at our full list of volunteer opportunities offered and we'd love to get you involved in a role that best suits your availability and interests. If the thought of the PTO leaves you with sweaty palms and breaking out in hives, shoot us an email at cambridgeptosa@gmail.com and we'll find a job that is perfect for you! Or check out the positions below that need YOU! If you see one that strikes your fancy, be sure to mark your interest on our volunteer page on the PTO website

 
 

Snack Pak 4 Kids SA and the Cambridge PTO will continue to serve our children with food insecurities during the 2020-2021 school year!  Through this amazing organization, we are able to provide those in need with food for the weekends when access to school breakfast and lunch is not available.  Although the way we can volunteer might look a little different this year, the need to serve our community, especially our children, is as important as ever.  Volunteers will prepare classroom bags on Thursday afternoons in preparation for teachers to pick up and distribute on Friday mornings.   We encourage you to volunteer as this minimal time commitment truly makes a huge impact on kids’ lives! You can sign up on the volunteer page of the Cambridge PTO website
