—Crystal Peebles—

We are pleased to announce that Crystal Peebles has accepted the position as President of the CFA Family Partnership for 2018-19 school year. The Peebles have been at CFA since 2008. Crystal and her husband Harrison have one child in each of the three divisions - Davon (9th), Grant (6th) and Selby (1st). Over the last  ten years, Crystal has served as a grade parent, LS Family Bingo Night Chair, and most recently a two-time Holiday Market Chair. From assisting in the classroom, gate admissions, concessions, or theatre ticket sales, Crystal is always there to lend a helping hand. With a great breath of knowledge regarding campus events and activities, she will be an invaluable asset to the Family Partnership next year. Thank you, Crystal, for agreeing to serve!

FROM OUR PRESIDENT:
Michele Brouse, President
Parent Association transitions to CFA Family Partnership
The power of community within the student body is something I have always advocated for and admired.
I see how important the camaraderie is for these children and I want the same for the CFA families. My goal this year as CFA Family Partnership President is to do simply that.
This year, a group of 11 parents will lead the way in re-organizing a volunteer organization comprised of CFA parents, grandparents and interested family members that will create a tradition of engagement and involvement in the life of the school. It will be our intention to create an environment where these volunteers feel welcome, included, and valued as partners. A stronger CFA family community will only further the children with their confidence as students of CFA, individually as a person and together a stronger bond with their family. With a world, chaotic and scary it’s even more important to bring the most amazing school community together and cherish where we live, who we are and what we can accomplish for the good.
It was determined that to better identify this organization, the steering committee voted to rename the volunteer organization from the Parent Association to the CFA Family Partnership.
