Voice of the CVHS PTO

President's Message

Dear Carnegie Rhino Families & Faculty,

I sincerely thank all our amazing volunteers who have stepped up in ways big and small for your time and talent from summer break until SnoCo Dance last Friday! It is hard to carve time away from family and work to donate to the school, so I speak for the whole PTO Board when I say THANK YOU! 

We cannot do what we do for the student body and the school without the entire organization of volunteers. Money alone just doesn't get it done. 

That said, money is a necessary part of accomplishing our goals! Thank you to all who gave your hard-earned income to the CVHS PTO!  We are currently at $44,000 out of the %100,000 for the year. This  11/29 was our most successful Giving Tuesday fundraising drive, but we still have a bit to go before we reach our annual PTO budget of $100,000. We have some exciting new incentive levels and rewards this year and fundraising events planned. I invite you to join us on a committee and get involved!

Please continue to support our great PTO. Click here to donate today!

Happy Holidays,

Maria C. Calzada

CVHS PTO President
