Captain Cares:  Adopt-A-Family for the Holidays 2017

January 18, 2018


On behalf of the PTO, we would like to thank everyone who donated their time, treasure and talent to make the holidays a little bit easier for the families adopted this year.  Our community adopted TEN families in 2017 – a record for this program.  We are overwhelmed by your generosity and honored to be a part of such a great community.   


We wanted to give a special thanks to the school district social workers, counselors, teachers and staff who helped us coordinate this program.  These individuals work tirelessly to ensure the needs of all students and families are met throughout the year and we are in awe of their commitment.  To help support these ongoing efforts, the Captain PTO has established a Captain Crisis Fund.  If you are interested in contributing to or learning more about the Captain Crisis Fund, please don’t hesitate to contact us. 

Last but certainly not least, Captain Cares is looking for new volunteers to lead this effort in 2018.  After two years at the helm, we can assure you that the rewards far outweigh any of the work involved in coordinating and supporting this program.  If you are interested, please don’t hesitate to contact Michela Henke Cilenti, Captain Cares PTO Chair (
