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. 

CP Spring Flower Sale!

The CP PTO is selling garden flower, vegetable and herb garden starters, in partnership with the locally-owned KubePak nursery.

Proceeds will go toward enlarging the turtle pond and building new garden beds in CP's Educational Garden. With these expanded beds we will be able to plant and supply the local Mobile Food Pantry with more fresh vegetables throughout the summer. Want to support the food garden directly? Donate a "Vegetable for the CP garden" in your order! To order go here.

CP Merchandise is Here!

We are proud to announce our new CP merchandise online store with Princeton Threads! Simply place and pay for your order online, and your merchandise will be delivered to the school bi-weekly! We have clothing and accessories for both the kids and adults in your family, tote bags, and car magnets with the new CP logo! Thank you to Jim Harley for his awesome design of the new CP logo!
