Welcome to and Welcome Back to CP!

Dear Community Park Family:

Welcome to the Community Park Parent Teacher Organization (CP PTO)! As a parent or caregiver of a CP student, you’re automatically a member—there are no dues.

As you may know, the PTO works to enrich the learning experience for all students, provide support to teachers, and bring our school community together throughout the year. It’s a partnership between parents and the school—and it doesn’t work without you.

Here’s how to get involved, meet teachers, staff, and other parents, and see CP students in action:

  • Connect
    • Attend school events and PTO meetings 
      Hope to see you at one of this year’s many gatherings! See the list of events below.
    • Join Konstella at http://www.konstella.com/cd/NuecLp. This website and mobile app is the best way to know about upcoming events, sign up to help a class, and contact parents and caregivers. Here's a handy cheat sheet with tips on how to manage Konstella.
  • Volunteer
    • Be a Room Parent for your child’s classroom. Sign up via Konstella.
    • Support an event or join a committee. We currently need help with the Fall Picnic (Sept. 20) and the Ivy Inn Fundraiser (Oct. 11), but there’s an event or committee devoted to everything from sustainability to fashion. Sign up via Konstella or at the PTO Welcome Table the first week of school. 

Even if you are not available to participate in activities during the school day, we still want to hear from you! Please send us your ideas via email, private message on Konstella, or even by anonymous notes dropped into the PTO mailbox in the front lobby.

Together we can create an exciting, diverse, and nurturing place of learning and fun. We have some amazing talents in our community. We hope you will consider contributing yours.

Best wishes for a successful school year!
