Help with the CP Halloween Parade!
We need volunteers to decorate the CP playground for the Halloween Parade on Tuesday, Oct. 31 at 1 p.m. The parade begins at 2:15 p.m. Please consider loaning your Halloween decorations to the PTO--the more we have, the spookier the playground will be! Click here to volunteer.
Reminder: No Clubs This Week!
After-School Clubs are not meeting this week due to early dismissal days on Tuesday through Friday. Need to keep your kiddo entertained on those long afternoons? Consider signing up for an early dismissal day POP!
Your PTO at Work: CP @ the PU Football Game
CP families came out in force for the PPS event at the PU Football game on Saturday. Superintendent Carol Kelly and Dr. Kim Tew were there to cheer on the home team with families from all six PPS schools. Proceeds from CP ticket sales support our school. Go, Tigers (and Parker Bears)!
Sign up to take part in exciting Parent-Organized Parties (POPs), including these great events scheduled for the coming weeks:

Save your receipts when you shop at McCaffrey's Food Market in the Princeton Shopping Center. CP gets 0.95% from each receipt, which adds up quickly.
Drop your receipts in the McCaffrey's box located in CP's main entrance vestibule.
