Carson Elementary PTA

Amazon Smiles is a new “free” fundraiser for Carson. When you order anything you would normally order through Amazon – and your prime account still works – and Amazon will direct deposit .5% of sales each quarter into the Carson PTA bank account. Win/Win! Yay!

To alleviate any confusion please know that we are officially incorporated with the IRS as PTA Colorado Congress.

Carson Cares 2014 – Project Angel Heart


projectangelheartlogoEvery year our Character Education Committee coordinates a school wide community service project. This year our Carson Cares Project will support Project Angel Heart. Project Angel Heart delivers highly nutritious meals, at no cost, to those suffering with a life threatening illness right here in our own community.

Carson’s students will help Project Angel Heart by donating standard size boxes of low sugar cereal and granola bars, and by decorating bags and cards for delivery with meals. Donations will be delivered to Project Angel Heart’s kitchen where they will pack the cereal boxes in decorated paper bags for delivery to their clients.

Due to specific nutritious needs please donate low sugar cereals/granola bars in standard size boxes (no bulk).


Carson Cares Schedule of Events:

 April 10th: Assembly with Mark Smith, Project Angel Heart Spokesperson

2014-2015 School Year Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteer Opportunities for 2014-2015 School Year
PTA needs Parent Volunteers to get as event coordinators for the 2014-2015 school year.  There are many fabulous events that are easy to plan and a great way to get involved. Organizing these events is easy, fun and does not even require you to be a regular PTA meeting attendee.  We also have many behind-the-scenes jobs that do not involve taking the lead on a specific event.  Let us know and we will get you signed up with something that fits your interest and availability! Please contact Christin Grover ( if you would like more information or would like to volunteer or sign up using the link below.
