School Spirit

Cashell Eats Out
The PTA arranges dine outs with local restaurants who share a portion of the revenue that Cashell families generate on a specific night. Typically, Cougar families descend like locusts and clean the restaurant out, generating business and a donation for the school. Besides a break from cooking, the Cashell Eats Out program is a great time for everyone--kids enjoy seeing their classmates and parents get a chance to meet each other. We've had fun at restaurants such as California Tortilla and Mamma Lucia and hope to see you out soon! Contact: Amy Wertlieb.

Spirit Days
Throughout the year, and often on half-days, Cashell students and staff are encouraged to be a little silly or to show their team colors. Contact: Shannon Maxwell.  

Spirit Wear
Nothing says school pride like wearing your school colors. Contact: Elizabeth McAndrews-Benavides.  

Staff Appreciation
The PTA shows its gratitude to the hard-working staff at Cashell by providing occasional treats, and by putting on a Staff Appreciation Week each year. Contact: OPEN.

Variety Show
Each year, for many years, the Variety Show has provided a stage for our budding Cashell performers. Students form dance lines, sing, play musical instruments, and put on a show for parents and friends.  Mark your calendars for Friday, February 10th.  Registration will begin in December.

Please email lulialxa.costa@gmail.com with any questions.

Ways & Means

Refilling our PTA bank account is what our Ways & Means programs are meant to do. They may also serve our other purposes, but if we didn't raise money, we couldn't be able to offer so many benefits to our school kids. Please continue to volunteer and support these efforts!

Gift Cards & Grocery Certificates
The Cashell PTA has again partnered with GLScrip to offer our community the opportunity to purchase gift cards through our PTA.  Every gift card purchased through this program earns money for our school and students.  **You can now pay for your gift cards with a credit card!**

HOW DOES IT WORK?  Families order gift cards through the Cashell PTA and pay face value (a $25 gift card costs $25).  The PTA submits one giant order on behalf of all participating families to the GLScrip.  Every gift card purchased earns Cashell PTA a rebate (1-15% of the card value).  There are hundreds of gift cards to chose from in every major shopping category...grocery, department stores, gas stations, restaurants, retail, hotels, home improvement and more.  Many Olney retailers participate: Giant, Safeway, Shoppers, Chipotle, Dunkin Donuts, Starbucks, CVS, TJMaxx, HomeGoods, Panera, Subway, etc.  Rebates for everyday shopping really add up!  Money earned will help the PTA fund educational books, software, and supplies for the classroom, field trips, annual events like our Variety Show and Science Fair, staff appreciation programs and more.

The PTA will sponsor a bulk order in late October, January and again in May.  Contact: Mary Suettinger (cashellpta@gmail.com).
