CPS’s School Council welcomes all parents/guardians of CPS students to join us at our monthly meetings and participate in making CPS a positive experience for all involved. We offer opportunities to volunteer to help with various events throughout the year. Joining Council enables you, as a parent/guardian, to guide and influence your child’s school.

Our mission: To grow and foster a collaborative and respectful environment in which students, teachers, staff, and parents, work together to build and uphold a strong, successful, and positive school community.

(Interested in volunteering? Also see our HELP WANTED: Volunteer Opportunities & Open Positions Council page!)
