Science Fair
Register Now for the 2016 Cashell Elementary School Science Fair!

This is to reduce the administrative burden of organizing the science fair as well as to reduce the number of typographical errors in the program. For questions, contact Elizabeth McAndrew-Benavides at

PTA Board and Committee Members
We need to begin our search for new Board and Committee members.   Nominations are collected starting in March and voting takes place in May.  The PTA can not exist without a Treasurer or President.  Terms are 2 years long, so I will not be able to serve next year.  If you are interested in serving on the Board or a Committee, please let us know. 

Foreign Language Classes
FLES is coming to Cashell Elementary! Big Learning Foreign Language: FLES offers quality, immersion-based foreign language classes in Spanish, Mandarin Chinese and French for children in kindergarten through sixth grade. Children have fun and enjoy learning new languages from native speakers as they explore foreign lands through exciting stories, high energy games, and imaginative interactive activities. With FLES, children gain confidence in hearing and speaking a new language and cultural awareness – opening their doors to a global 21st century.  FLES will be offering Introductory to Advance Level courses starting in February on Tuesday mornings before school and Friday mornings for the Advance course. Look for a flier in your child’s Wednesday folder with more information and how to register. Or email Rana Oriolo at for more information.
