Community Roots Academy Parent Participation Organization

Welcome to CRA’s Parent Participation Organization (PPO) where every parent/guardian of a CRA student is a member!  CRA’s PPO was established by a collective desire to further the community building activities and learning experiences of CRA students.  We sponsor events to help develop a closer connection between school and home and encourage parent involvement. The PPO leads activities such as our Scholastic Book Fair, Staff Appreciation Week, and Multicultural Fair.  It also assists with organizing volunteers, and provides support for fundraising activities.  However, none of these events can take place without the support of our members (YOU)!

We have monthly General meetings every First Wednesday of the month at 8:25am in the school library. We value your input and comments and would love to see you!
