Hi Culbreth families! Mark your calendars now for the next PTSA meeting: Tuesday, March 5th at 1:00. We will meet in the Culbreth admin office conference room and would love for you to join us! This month’s agenda (available HERE) is a little lighter which leaves plenty of time for questions and discussion. Knowing what’s on your mind will really help shape our budget conversations (which begin at the April meeting). Looking forward to seeing you on Tuesday!
Greetings Culbreth families! Hope you’re surviving the weather whiplash we’ve been having. Welcome Spring! Back to Winter! And hello Spring again!
During all these weather changes, your PTSA has been hard at work. At our last meeting on February 5th, we reviewed and discussed several grant applications for our third of four review sessions. I am pleased to share the following grants that were approved for funding:
Sixth Grade Science Team: approved for $771 for a mobile planetarium visit from the Morehead Planetarium and Science Center.
Jessica Kelly, French teacher: approved for $500 to support a professional development trip to France
Helen Motta, 8th grade ELA teacher: approved for $100 to support professional development--board renewal boot camp
Monica Bintz, Principal: approved for $1200 for “Bring the Beast to Culbreth” Black History Month celebration
Mr. Nedimeyer, Band teacher: $500 funded by Special Orchestra grant donation received last month
We’re so pleased to be able to support teachers and staff with funding for their classroom activities and professional endeavors. And thanks to your generous support at the beginning of the year during the membership drive, as well as your financial contributions throughout the year, we’re able to provide these wonderful opportunities for Culbreth staff and students!
Looking ahead, there are some things coming up on the calendar and I hope you will be involved. At the March PTSA meeting, we will review the budget and talk about volunteer opportunities. During the April meeting, we will discuss the draft budget for next fiscal year. And at the May meeting, we will finalize the budget and review our fourth and final round of grant proposals. You can find meeting information on the PTSA's website: http://www.culbrethptsa.org/ptsa-meetings-events. Mark your calendars now!
Mark your calendar now and plan to join us at the next PTSA meeting, scheduled for TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 5th at 1:00pm. In addition to our regular updates on the budget, volunteer opportunities, and upcoming hospitality events, we’ll spend most of our meeting time reviewing and voting on teacher grant proposals, and discussing different ways our school can partner with PORCH to support students and families at Culbreth. Hope you can join us!

Greetings Culbreth families and welcome to 2019! On behalf of the Culbreth PTSA, I just wanted to wish you all the best in this NEW YEAR. We’re almost halfway through our school year and we’ve accomplished a lot--exceeded our membership and fundraising goals, given out almost $5000 in teacher discretionary funds and grant funds to teachers and staff, transformed the teacher workroom, hosted the Reflections Art Contest, and much more! As we enter the second half of our school year, there’s still more on our To Do List. I hope you’ll continue to look for ways to volunteer with the PTSA to support families, students, teachers and staff at Culbreth. Thank you for all you do and thank you for supporting the Culbreth PTSA!
