CSA grants over $11,000 to school and teachers
Thanks to the townspeople of Carlisle, the Carlisle School Association (CSA) raised enough money this past year through its fundraisers to be able to approve 14 teacher and school official grant proposals, for a total of more than $11,000. These grants included funding for the art department's middle school stained glass project, library books to create a unit on world religions, which will help in preparation for the MCAS tests, and core read-aloud books for the first grade, to name a few.
The Carlisle School Association is Carlisle's parent-teacher organization. The CSA works hard all year organizing a lecture series, library volunteers, cultural enrichment programs, assisting newcomers, coordinating playground volunteers, organizing a social dance program, coordinating teacher appreciation luncheons and most familiar to many, in the early fall coordinating its gift wrap fund-raiser. It is through its fundraisers that the CSA is able to assist the school's administrators and teachers in enriching the curriculum.
The CSA runs a lecture series that is open to all. The next lecture is entitled "Developing Stress-Hardy Children" and is scheduled for February 1. All lectures are held at the school in the Robbins building library.
