Upcoming Events for Parents

Here are two great upcoming informational and educational events that will be at the school this month:

Coffee & Conversation: Tuesday, November 14th 8:30 – 9:30 am

Cradlerock Elementary is hosting a “Coffee & Conversation” with the multi-service center (MSC) of Howard County on Tuesday, November 14th. This is an opportunity for Cradlerock families to learn and ask questions about the resources provided by the MSC for residents of Howard County.

At this meeting input will be gathered about which topics and guest speakers would be of interest for future events. RSVP encouraged, but not required.

Parent’s Survival Guide for the Elementary Years: Wednesday, November 15th 6:00 – 8:00 pm

Changes occur with your child as they grow and develop in the elementary school years. Children fluctuate between independence and dependence and the combination can bring a wide range of behavior issues.
Attend this workshop to help understand how to help your 5 to 12 year old:

  • Set the stage to create positive situations for empowerment and pride
  • Develop consequences that work
  • Gain strategies to handle oppositional behaviors
  • Learn ways to develop better homework habits

Workshop is FREE and childcare (ages 2 and up) is available upon request.

On line registration required:

TONIGHT: Trunk or Treat!

The annual “Trunk or Treat” is tonight, Saturday Oct 28th at 7 PM at the school and will go until 8:15 (or until all our little ghosts and goblins have gotten all the candy!)

Volunteers should arrive at 6:30 PM to set up.


Welcome Back Cradlerock Families!

We hope everyone had a great first day of school! Be sure to check your student’s take-home folder for a flier with details about joining the Cradlerock PTA so you can help our children’s school continue to ROCK!

The first meeting of the new school year will be held on Tuesday, October 11th at 7 PM in the Media Center.

April Meeting Cancelled!

We thank everyone for their understanding, but April’s PTA meeting is cancelled due to Spring Break. The next regularly scheduled meeting will be on Wednesday, May 10th. We hope to see you then!

Reminder: meeting tonight!

Please join us tonight, Wednesday, January 11th at 7 PM in the media center for our first PTA meeting of 2017. We will hear updates from the administration and focus on our plans for the rest of the school year. Do you have any great ideas to share? We’d love to see you!
