Cashell Elementary School PTA


Supporting our kids

Variety Show - March 15th

Fun, growth, enrichment...


MCPS' Cashell Elementary School is a National Blue Ribbon School, with high achievement scores…but that’s not what defines us. Our PTA works closely with our teachers, administrators, and community to make Cashell a lively, supportive, and enriched learning environment (…and yes, us parents/guardians manage to have some fun along the way, too). Join us in making this year an even more fruitful one for our kids.

The Variety Show was fabulous! It was so much fun watching the kids rock the night. Thanks so much for supporting the PTA and our kids.

Unfortunately, this year’s murder mystery adult social is cancelled. We did not have enough sign-up to make it a worthwhile fundraiser. All ticket purchases will be refunded, including PayPal purchases.

The PTA will be hosting a 20s themed mixer at the Olney Winery in coming weeks in order to raffle our baskets and host the silent auction. Stay tuned for more info.

KidsCo’s Kids’ Night is still scheduled Friday, April 5th. For more information, please contact KidsCo.

Prefer administrative "behind the scenes" work? No matter your preference, we have a task for you!  Our volunteers make our PTA successful.  Ask a PTA officer or committee chair how you can help!
