This association will host a variety of events throughout the year for parents, guardians, and grandparents to get involved by volunteering your time and/or contributions. We certainly hope you will join us in making CA an even greater place for our children, faculty and staff!  Please contact Beth Mabry on how to get involved: bethfmabry@gmail.com.


Box Tops, Publix Cards, Kroger Plus Cards

Did you know that you that CA takes box tops for education labels from various products?  Last year CA was able to receive several hundred dollars from these labels alone!  Simply cut and keep labels and send to school in a Ziploc bag.  We also offer Publix shopping cards (a key tag to use when checking out).  If you scan this key tag at every visit, CA receives a portion of your purchase.  Kroger will also donate to CA for everyone who registers their Kroger plus with CA.  It’s quick and easy, just visit their website!
