Elementary Field Trips



A field trip is one of the best tools that we can use to provide every student with real-world experiences. Whether that’s a trip to the local library, park, a museum, a zoo, each experience that a student participates in contributes to their understanding of the world.

When students leave the classroom, they see the connections between what is happening at school and in the “real world.” They begin to see that what they learn within the walls of our classrooms can help them solve the problems they see in the world around them and can have a direct impact on who they become as people.

At CTA we take pride in ensuring our students experience opportunities outside of our classroom. We are fortunate to have a strong partnership with our CTA Parent Association who each year fundraises and sets aside funds to support our student field trips.

Santa’s Elves Busy in the Workshop

The CTA Parent Association put a new spin on Santa’s Shop this year and hosted a Santa’s Workshop for grades K-6. Students were able to make ornaments for friends and family. They painted, measured and decorated. In the end, they had sliced wood ornaments painted with snowmen, hot chocolate ornaments, yarn Christmas trees and unique easel paintings. Many Parent Association volunteers worked hard to make the day a success and saw many smiling faces!

Celebrating Teachers During Teacher Appreciation Week


 

The CTA Parent Association honored the extraordinary teachers at CTA during Teacher Appreciation Week May 2-6 with a variety of special events.  A Make-N-Take breakfast kicked off the week on Monday morning with Herman’s Boy bagels, homemade granola and fruit parfaits. Throughout the week, the staff were greeted with homemade chocolates and cement planters with succulents for their desks.  Friday finished the week with a soup and salad lunch.  CTA parents love their teachers and staff and are appreciative of all they do year-round!

Santa’s Shop a great success! 


 

The CTA Parent Association organized a Santa Shop in December with many gifts that were handmade and donated by CTA families. The Santa Shop provided an opportunity to CTA elementary and middle school students to shop for gifts for their family and friends.  From handmade candles, bath salts, dish towels to coffee cozies and hand warmers, there was a wide range of gifts for the children to select from. Volunteer parents also helped the children wrap the gifts when they were done shopping.  The Parent Association raised $750 to support student activities throughout the school year.  Thank you to all our families that helped with the gifts and helped the children shop throughout the day!
