Sign up to host a P.O.P!!!

Parties organized by parents (and other members of our community) are a wonderful way to a) fundraise for the CP PTO and b) build community through children, family, or adult centered events. Click here to sign up to host a party - maybe a wine tasting night for adults or a teach a students how to bike event, or something totally new that we have not even considered! Bring your creativity and help support out community! If you have any questions please email at or message on Konstella. We look forward to seeing your party ideas!
