FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
o Isn’t CSA just all about fundraising? No! Fundraising is, of course, a necessary component of CSA due to the simple fact that school budgets cannot provide for everything we need to make Center great for our students. However, there are many fun activities subsidized by CSA for the sole purpose of creating a sense of community, school spirit and having fun!
o Does CSA require a large time commitment? No! You choose your involvement level – whether it is attending a meeting, volunteering for an event, being part of the planning process etc. Every little bit helps!
o If I just want to volunteer my time but not attend CSA meetings – can I do that? Yes! Any and all help is always welcome and greatly appreciated!
o Is there a way to stay informed even if I can’t go to the meetings? Yes! You can ALWAYS check the Mayfield Schools website for school updates. Also, please "like" our Facebook page - Mayfield Center Elementary CSA! CSA updates are also in each Center Chatter.
