Parties Organized by Parents - P.O.Ps Launching!
Friday, October 14

We are rebranding party boards as POPs! These are parties for kids only, families, or adults only hosted by members of the CP community. People pay to participate and the money raised goes to the CP PTO. They are wonderful community building events and help raise money for our CP PTO costs like residences, supporting Parker Bear students, and special projects led by teachers.

We will be releasing several P.O.P sign ups including a movie viewing event, facial party (for adults), pumpkin carving, celebration of Dia de los Muertos, and more! SIGN UPS OPEN FRIDAY, OCTOBER 14! Be ready to grab yourself a spot for these fun events! We can't wait to hear about the exciting ideas that you have - feel free to reach out with any party ideas that you would like to host throughout the year!

Holiday Gift Drive 2022

The holiday season will soon be upon us and Princeton Human Services would like to ask for your help in brightening a child’s Holidays. With these hard economic times during the pandemic, we understand the need is still great.  Applications are received for children up to age twelve (12), which includes 1-2 gifts they would like for the holidays, which are not to exceed $75 dollars. In addition to sponsoring a child’s wish list, we are asking donors to consider donating a gift card to help the parents/families of the children during these difficult times. Go here for more information, and here to sign up to support a child and/or family.  Please sign up by Friday, November 18. 2022.
