ABOUT THE PTO
The CCS Parent Teacher Organization is a collaborative effort between parents, teachers and staff to provide enrichment opportunities for our children at CCS. All parents are members of the PTO and everyone’s time and talents are required to make it a successful program.

- Jenna Mazur - Secretary/Communications
- Bethany Breitland - Diversity and Equity liason
- Kristen Daniels - member

As President, Jen is in charge of overall administration of the PTO. This includes coordinating events throughout the year with parent volunteers, facilitating teacher grants, reserving the school for PTO events, spirit wear sales and supply, correspondence with teachers, staff, and families and providing support to volunteers who coordinate PTO programs.
Larson Berkey is Vice President and supports the president and the rest of the board in each of their roles as needed. She helps to facilitate the board meetings as well.
As Treasurer/Vice President, Sera handles all things money related, including managing the bank account and paying out grant checks.
Our secretary is Jenna and she is responsible for getting our information out through our weekly email newsletter. The Board offers monthly meetings where the members and principals share information and answer any questions of parents who attend. All parents are welcome at these meetings. Jenna records the minutes for all board meetings.
This team approach means that parents are relied upon to help coordinate events like the Holiday Market, Variety Show, Spring Fun Run and Basket Raffle, staff appreciation lunches, and other fundraising efforts and events. Coordinating one of these events includes organizing and communicating the details and needs of the event to the Board.
