More specifically, ADVOCACY looks like:
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Academic Summit (Canceled)
This free event hosted by the Wake County PTA Council includes a multitude of 45 minute workshops on topics like "Transitioning to Middle School", "How to Discuss Controversial Books with Your Child," and "Learning to Be an LGBTQ+ Ally." Lunch will be provided. Please register before Feb 27th. Space is limited! See flyer for specific details. Please contact Katie Herndon to stay in the loop.
Unfortunately the DEI summit has been canceled due to unexpectedly low registration numbers.
The Cary Christmas Store
In December, we will partner with the First Cary United Methodist Church who hosts the annual Cary Christmas Store. Qualifying families will be invited to shop for donated items at affordable prices. Approximately 100 families (200-300 children) will be served this year across multiple locations in Cary. Donations will be accepted in late November and the first week of December. See flyer for specific details. Please contact Katie Herndon to stay in the loop.
Our Hispanic Liaison, Viviana Valle Solorzano, tirelessly ensures that our emails, Facebook posts, important announcements, and PTA in-person meeting communications are provided in Spanish as well as English. We could use more help translating all communications (including this page 😀), and your expertise in other languages spoken at Cary Elementary would also be valuable additions. Please contact the communications committee.
