CAS PTSA Awarded School Of Excellence

Charlotte Avenue Elementary School and Charlotte Avenue PTSA Recognized Nationally as a School of Excellence

National PTA® has once again recognized Charlotte Avenue Elementary and the Charlotte Avenue PTSA as a National PTA School of Excellence for their achievement in building effective family-school partnerships. Research shows that when families and schools work together, student achievement increases, schools improve and communities grow stronger. Being recognized as a National PTA School of Excellence demonstrates our school’s and PTSA's leadership and commitment to supporting student success and continuous school improvement.  

“The partnership between Charlotte Avenue and their PTSA is a true example of what can be accomplished when schools and families work together,” said Laura Bay, president of National PTA. 

National PTA launched its National PTA School of Excellence program to help strengthen family-school partnerships across the country and make measurable progress in the areas of education, health and safety and arts and cultural exploration. 

To be recognized as a National PTA School of Excellence, PTAs evaluate their current family engagement strategies and submit a goal for school improvement that families, teachers and administrators have set together. They improve upon their family engagement strategies throughout the year, while focusing on their goal. The National PTA School of Excellence designation is awarded to those schools that have demonstrated improvement in the family-school partnership and significant progress toward their goal.
