Events and Fundraising


It’s time for Coleytown Elementary School Family Photo Days! This fundraiser provides you with a fabulous professional family photo session while supporting CES!  We have two different dates and are working with a great photographer named Matthew Grindle.

Saturday, October 10th (rain date 10/11) – Evan Harding Point
Saturday, October 17th (rain date 10/18) - Winslow Park

SCHEDULING:  If you are interested in scheduling a session, please contact Josh Saitz at coleytownportraits@gmail.com. Josh will schedule your sitting date and time with you.  Once he has received your payment, you will receive confirmation of your sitting. Please respond quickly as date requests will be honored on a first come, first served basis.

SITTING FEE:  A $70 sitting fee will get you a photo session with Matt Grindle and the opportunity to purchase the digital package of your choice. Packages start as low as $40 for one digital photo. Visit Matt Grindle's website for a preview of his work.

PAYMENT:  The cost of your professional family portrait sitting is $70.00. Payment can be made via PayPal using the button below or via check. Please make your check payable to CES PTA and return it to CES via your child’s green folder/backpack in an envelope marked “Family Photo Day”. 

PICTURE PROCESS: Your sitting will take approximately 20 minutes and the photographer will take several photographs in a variety of poses. Know that extended family members – including pets – are welcome to both photo days! You will be able to view your images online and place any orders approximately one week after your sitting. The photographer offers a variety of digital packages (Sweet and Simple - 1 digital photo for $40; Happy Family - 3 digital photos for $100; Many Memories - 7 digital photos for $175; The Whole Kit and Caboodle- all of the distributable quality photos as determined by the photographer for $350).  We have requested that images be available digitally so you can purchase digital images and get them e-mailed to you. The photographer outsources prints if requested; arrangements can be made with him. No minimum order is required.  Please note that Matt will observe all social distancing guidelines and will wear a face mask during the shoot. 

Please note that this is a very popular fundraiser so please reach out quickly to secure your preferred sitting date and time. Note: You must call no later than the Wednesday prior to your preferred sitting date to schedule your appointment.
