Your elementary AND middle school PTG!

Hello!  The June meeting of the PTG will be an important one as we are voting to amend our bylaws and install a new piece of equipment on the CTP playground (pictured here!).

Meeting Tuesday June 13th @ 4pm

We have been informed that the Cheshire PTG is dissolving and we will not be getting any financial support from them in the coming school year.  Therefore, we will be voting to amend our bylaws to include both the elementary and middle school grades, plus expanding our list of officers to include a chair, treasurer, secretary, and arts enrichment coordinator for each school moving forward.

Nominations and election of new officers at each school will take place in the Fall, as we hope to include as many families from Cheshire and Adams as possible.  This is an exciting development for your PTG as we work to support all of the ACRSD students in Preschool through 7th grade.  We hope to continue supporting the field trips, events, and fun that have been traditions at both Adams and Cheshire schools.  All families are welcome at any PTG meeting.  Please share!
