The CP PTO Needs You! Volunteer for the different leadership positions in the PTO!

Without the hard work of busy parents like you, CP students would miss out on many fun activities (such as ART RESIDENCIES, After School Clubs, STEM day, science fair, picture day, field day, class parties, and more)! Sadly, many of our volunteers will move on as their children move up to middle school! It is time for new, fresh faces to step in and make CP what YOU want it to be! Check out the Konstella post for more information here.

Go HERE to fill out an interest form - this is not a commitment but we will contact you to check availability and where you would like to step in!
