We have a few events coming up - we hope to see you soon. In the meantime, check out our 60 for 60 page in Friday News too...great news and a HUGE thanks to everyone who has contributed!
Tuesday 15 May - CASCA AGM and election of new officers - Please come along!
Drinks and snacks from 6pm, meeting at 6.30pm to 7.30pm.
We'll celebrate our successes this year and look at the year ahead. It's a great way to meet others from across the school. We urgently need new officers to lead CASCA - Greg and Imogen are standing down at the AGM. Would you like to be more involved? See more below.
Thursday 14 June - Parents' Forum - on friendship issues.
Note new date. Do let Anna and Laurel know if you have any topics you'd like to see covered in Parents' Forum, firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
Friday 22 June - SummerFest - lots of fun, so make a date with your diary.
If you ran or helped on a stall at the SummerFest last year, we'd love you to do the same again this year! The organising team will be in touch with stall leaders shortly. We'll need others to help approach local businesses for donations to the raffle and tombola. We're also looking for a parent to lead this year's Battle of the Bands, one of the real highlights of the SummerFest - including liaising with the music department to encourage students to sign up, and finding 3 judges. Please get in touch with Katrina, SummerFest lead, on firstname.lastname@example.org if you can help.
Nicki Longfoot will be looking for lots of fabulous items for the Silent Auction, so start thinking of whether you can secure any designer clothes, bags, event tickets, beautiful objects, limited edition things...more information next week!
Friday 29 June - Dance-a- thon - a favourite with the students
Led by Nicki Longfoot. Please let Nicki know if you'd like to help, email@example.com
CASCA URGENTLY NEEDS NEW LEADERS - FROM 15 MAY!
We urgently need new enthusiastic team members to lead CASCA next year! We need to hand over the baton - can you take it?
At the AGM on 15 May, both Greg and Imogen will be stepping down, after several really successful CASCA years. So we need new officers to lead the organisation. Several positions are needed, and we're looking for new committee members to share roles and tasks broadly, to reduce workload on individuals. Job-sharing for key roles are very much a possibility.
In particular, we need a new Chair and Vice-Chair, plus a new co-Treasurer, to share work with Maia, and someone to share the Secretary role with Barbara. CASCA likes to play to people's strengths and we welcome job-shares!
CASCA has a fantastic community spirit and an integral and crucial part of the school. Getting involved, and being part of the core team, is a great way to meet other parents and keep in touch with and build links with the school.
The job of the core team of officers is to:
• make sure that the overall schedule of events is coordinated and well-managed
• liaise with the school, sponsors, bank and other partners, and do any troubleshooting
• ensure that CASCA members know about and come along all our events, by good communication and publicity
The officers support a much wider team of 'event leaders', who organise and run each of the specific CASCA activities over the year, with a huge, fantastic pool of volunteers who make things happen.
If you're interested in taking on a CASCA core team role in 2018-19, or just finding out more, please email Greg, firstname.lastname@example.org or Imogen, email@example.com.
We hope to see you at the AGM on 15 May.
Imogen, Greg, Maia, Barbara
