Everyone is part of the PTO. Everyone has the opportunity to join in. Everyone is welcome. Our goal is to raise funds, to support the education of our children at CP.
The PTO raises money that benefits every child. Each year every grade enjoys a Residency program that the teachers incorporate into their curriculum. Last year the 5th graders performed MacBeth under the guidance of the McCarter residency. Visiting authors & poets challenged our younger students. Everyone benefitted from the garden residency. These residencies cost the PTO over $20,000. We do not demand dues, but we raise money by hosting events & fundraisers, that build community & allow us to have fun together. Direct donations and other financial contributions are essential to insure our goals are achieved.
The overall budget for the PTO is over $50,000. Your participation both financially & non financially define it’s success and what we can do for our children.
