Small Jobs, Big Impact

Thanks to everyone who has stepped up to volunteer for next year's PTO team!

Many critical PTO roles are now filled, but we still have lots of small, one-off jobs that can have a big impact.

We expect a full calendar of in-person events and activities next fall and need your help in organizing Welcome Week, Bike/Walk to School Day, Photo Day, the Halloween Parade, Fall Silent (Online) Auction, Party Boards, Book Fair, and more.

Please check out these smaller jobs below under Fundraising and Events and sign up!

Also, mark your calendars for the General PTO Meeting this Thursday, June 17, at 7 p.m., when we will approve next year's officers by vote. All parents and teachers are welcome to attend (Zoom link to be sent separately).

The meeting is also a good time to ask questions about other volunteer opportunities at CP.

Thanks in advance for contributing your time and talents to CP. We can't wait to work together next fall to make sure CP is still the place to be! ;)

PS - Have an idea for an event or activity for next year? Let us know! Email copresidents@cppto.org.
