CDSA PTA

PTA is a group of parents and teachers who work together to give the students of CDSA the best experience they can!! The purpose of our PTA page is to provide an online community for parents and families at Christine Donnell School of the Arts.

Goal: Our goal is to share information and tips, update the community on events and programs, and showcase the achievements of students, teachers, parents, and other community members.

Operating as usual

Good Morning CSDA family!

Let’s talk fundraising for a moment.

Last year, Covid limited our fundraising options, but guess what…. You (yes, every single one of you) blew us away with your generosity. Our two largest fundraisers, Jog-a-thon and Texas Roadhouse Rolls, combined made more last year than any other year. I was in tears as I took the Jog-a-thon money to the bank. When I say you blew us away, I’m not exaggerating. Thank you. Thank you!

As a PTA, we have decided we’d scale back our fundraising and just host these two fundraisers again this year. We hope to accomplish two things: 1) We hope to not overwhelm you with fundraisers. I get it. I’m a busy momma. 2) We want to give you these two opportunities to show up and show out again this year. Let’s show our students and our teachers how much we support them.

Keep an eye out for the Texas Roadhouse forms coming home with your students in the next few weeks.

Thanks for always shining so brightly!

CDSA PTA President
