Welcome to Christa McAuliffe Elementary PTSA!
Our purpose is to be a strong voice for children and a resource for our families, school and community. We do this by providing volunteer and financial support for programs and activities that enhance our children’s education. As a PTSA, we do our utmost to engage and empower our children, families, educators, and community through communication, advocacy and collaboration.
Kindergarten Registration at McAuliffe:
Children who will be five years old on or before August 31st are eligible to register for our 2024-2025 Kindergarten classes. Parents can choose to register online (see link below) or in person at McAuliffe Elementary at our in-person registration event.
In-Person Event: The in-person event will be held on Thursday, February 22nd from 1:00pm – 7:00pm. Parents new to our school will be able to meet school administration, staff/teachers, and have a tour of our school. Our Registrar will provide computers for parents to register their student on site.
Online Registration: Parents familiar with our school and/or unable to attend our February 22nd event can register their child for Kindergarten online at: https://www.lwsd.org/students-families/registration
Parents will be required to upload the following documents when registering their child. Registration can still be started if these documents are not available at the time of registration, with parents uploading these documents at a later date. Our Registrar can also help with the uploading of documents, as needed.
Important: While K-12 student registration will continue throughout the school year and summer, parents are highly encouraged to register students as soon as possible. Doing so helps LWSD to ensure that class sizes are balanced and adequate staff are hired in time for the new school year.
Challenger Chase Fun Run
Thank you to all the amazing community partners, friends, students and parents who made our Challenger Chase Fun Run fundraiser a success. We raised an astounding, record breaking $97,355.19.
Our Fun Run Assembly was a spectacular celebration. We danced to Thriller, had a trumpet playing dinosaur visit, handed out a ton of prizes and watched some teachers get soaked in the Pitch Burst. Go Challengers!!!
Fun Run Dollars At Work
Your generosity during the Fun Run fundraiser has helped us unleash a mountain of sand at the school! We've successfully banished the playground swamp, turning it into a digging paradise for our Challengers. No more waterlogged woes - rain or shine, it's sand play time.
The Reflections program is coming back to McAuliffe in the 2023-24 school year!
Stay tuned for more updates and timelines. Please refer to the guidelines for entries here.
