Join the PTA!

Dedicated and talented administrators, teachers and staff make Central a great place for our children to learn and be successful. Family support and involvement are other reasons Central is such an outstanding school.

Annual PTA dues are $5. Members are not required to attend meetings or volunteer, though any help is appreciated. To join, please return the completed PTA form with your dues to school. Forms are available in the school office or by emailing centralbearspta@gmail.com.

Annual PTA Walkathon

To raise funds for Central’s PTA programs, we hold our walkathon on October 31 during the Fall Festival. This annual event has been successful due to the support from Central families, friends and staff, as well as area businesses. 

Every donation – 

no matter the amount – helps!
