Thrift Shop is here! If you are in town this weekend, we hope you’ll drop by for a visit on Friday, April 20, or Saturday, April 21.

Since the early 1960's, the PTA has served the CAJ community in numerous ways. One tangible way that they help support our students is by raising funds for a variety of school projects ranging from playground equipment to sponsoring the robotics teams' travel to the VEX world championships last year. Many of these funds are raised through the CAJ Thrift Shop, hosted every October and April. Thrift Shop is a wonderful opportunity to clean out our closets and work together towards a common goal, while having lots of fun.

Over the past several years, we have seen a decline in Thrift Shop volunteers, donations, and CAJ family attendance. With changing times come changing needs. The PTA executive committee and CAJ administration have jointly come to the conclusion that in the best interest of the school we will host Thrift Shop just once a year instead of twice. This will be the last school year that we will host a Spring Thrift Shop.

Thank you for supporting Thrift Shop over the years. CAJ looks forward to continuing the Fall Thrift Shop and pursuing other ways that the PTA can support our students and serve the community.

Have a great week!
