Thank you for All the Support of our Fundraising efforts!

Thank you to all the students and families who attended The LEGO Movie screening at The Princeton Garden Theater on Monday. The sold out crowd raised $1,755 for our school--and had a fabulous afternoon. "Everything (was) awesome!"

Another BIG thank you to Patty Kim and all volunteers who made this year's Book Fair possible. We raised $2,200 for CP! It was wonderful to see students get books and have our community support our teachers and school. 


STEM Expo Presenters Needed!

This year our STEM Expo will take place on Monday, April 25. This is a wonderful opportunity to share your STEM knowledge and participate in a treasured community tradition. We're looking for community members to come to CP for the day and share with our students their interests and knowledge to foster a love of STEM and continue to inspire the children's curiosity.  Below is a snapshot of some of our past presentations. Go here for more information to volunteer for this exciting event!

Help re-start the CP Green Team!

After two years of impeded operations, we are excited to announce that the CP Green Team, and Green Teams across the district are back! We are looking for people who are interested in helping our school reduce our carbon footprint in many ways, from recycling, composting, and gardening all the way to community outreach events and designing school initiatives! We need you to help our community and students stay on the forefront of environmental activism. For more info email Georgette at or sign up to be on the Sustainability/Green team under committees on Konstella.
