Chris Ditta has reported that the Kenmore community is using EdBacker to raise funds for specific PTA-sponsored student activities. The CCPTA will list and/or circulate public fundraisers being conducted by schools. Please see the Kenmore campaigns below.

2015 is off to a terrific start! Kenmore now has 5 live fundraising campaigns ready for your donations. Here are the links to each campaign.  Please feel free to share these campaign links with your community and encourage them to pass the news along to their own social networks.  An easy way to get the word out would be to add a link to the campaigns in an email signature, so every email sent out will help drive supporters to it.

Help students learn about Taiko Japanese Drumming:

Help Theatre and Dance Students Experience Broadway:

Help the Show Go On at Kenmore Middle School:

Help our students improve health and self-confidence:

Help student performers reach their potential:

If your school is interested in using EdBacker, contact Gary or MaryEllen - it is free this year to Arlington Schools (except for payment processing fees):

APS Policy for Boundary Criteria

At the December 15th CCPTA meeting, a question was raised about the criteria that guide boundary decisions in APS.

Meg Tucillo forwarded the APS and it is APS Policy 30-22.2 adopted by the School Board on November 1, 2012.

The CCPTA will be having our regular meeting on January 12, 2015 at 7 pm in our usual place, the APS Education Center on N. Quincy Street. Please note that while each school appoints a representative to the CCPTA, all meetings are open to the general public.

Happy New Year, and welcome back to school!
