College Park PTA (CPPTA) is a volunteer organization that supports College Park Elementary School’s students. The CPPTA works with College Park’s teachers and staff to ensure that our students receive a high quality and enriching education. Providing volunteers to help support school activities is just one way the CPPTA fulfills its mission. Paying for several programs that cannot be funded by the state, such as Dolphin Games, Walk Through assemblies, Art programs, Lunch Time Activities and World’s Fair – just to name a few – is another important way we support our students. For the sake of your child, as well other students at College Park Elementary School, please consider joining the CPPTA – annual membership dues are only $25 (which covers up to two adult family members). Regardless of whether or not you become a member, we ask that you consider making a tax‐deductible donation of any size to the CPPTA. If every student’s family joined the CPPTA, and most made a small additional donation, we would not need to engage in any other fund raising activities, and our members could devote their full efforts to fulfilling our mission.
CPPTA members (anyone who has paid PTA Membership dues is a CPPTA member) are encouraged to attend.
The CPPTA will post upcoming events and other important information on our website at collegeparkpta.org . We will also share information with each of the room parents to distribute to their classrooms/teachers.
