CP's March Madness Standings

March Madness at CP is underway with 51 brackets participating in our pool. Some brackets are going strong and others, well, may provide more comic relief at this point, which is always welcome these days.

Thanks to all of the families that have participated and donated (and thank you to the Oakman Family for organizing the pool!).  We've raised $335 for our students and our school.  

Below are yesterday's standings going into the Elite 8. Lots of shake-ups are still bound to occur given that many top seeds are already out. May the best team and CP family win!

The 5th Grade Presents Shakespeare's Hamlet
Thursday, April 1 at 10:45 a.m.
The 5th graders have been hard at work putting together their annual performance of Shakespeare under the tutelage of McCarter Theater staff. This year's play, Hamlet, will be performed virtually. All of CP is invited to attend. 
Thank you to the 5th grade parents who generously provided support for this fan favorite residency program!
