What will the PTA fund this year?

CRS PTA Budget, over $145 spent per student


The CRS PTA provides support for our students through investing in academic enrichment (STEM, Reading, Project Based Learning, Languages, Art, Music, & much more!) through:

  • Curriculum support with books, project materials, software, & online resources

  • Educational experiences with author visits, student assemblies, field trips, and special grade-level events like Colonial Day, Ancient Civilizations, and Reading Rodeo

  • Special programs like our Positive Behavior System, Multi-Tiered Systems of Support/Responsive Instruction (MTSS/RI), Student Council, and more

  • Technology to support enhanced learning experiences in the classrooms as well as the Library, Physical Education and other specials departments

We also support our students and their academic experiences by investing in Churchill Road Elementary and its staff through:

  • Teacher incidentals support with funding for out-of-pocket classroom supplies & materials 

  • Professional development support for teachers to learn new techniques and ideas they can share across CRS

  • School support for our outdoor science lab and other campus improvements

How is the budget planned?

Each year the Budget Committee (consisting of parent and staff volunteers) prepares a preliminary proposed budget based upon CRS PTA goals (as established by the board, based upon member input). The CRS PTA board reviews and amends this budget as required prior to voting on the budget. The annual budget is then presented to the CRS PTA membership for approval via voting. Any proposed changes to the budget of over $300 will be presented at a general membership meeting for approval of the amended budget.


Incremental funds beyond the planned budget needs may be allocated to Appropriations.

2020-2021 Budget Planning

Submissions for consideration for funding by the CRS PTA in 2020-2021 will be due in February. Please check back in late January/February for the online form link and additional process details.
