Our Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) creates a caring school community, as well as organizes volunteer and fundraising activities.  All parents are encouraged to become active in the PTO.  The PTO is an active, committed group of parent and teacher volunteers.  Our members, committee chairpersons, and officers host numerous events and fundraisers throughout the year in order to strengthen our connections and ultimately promote positive growth and learning in our children.  We meet regularly to enhance the educational, developmental and social programs offered, and to raise funds for improving the preschool.

PTO President's Desk

by Melanie Resnick

We have had the most wonderful experience with our three daughters at CJP.  Every teacher has provided our girls a balanced, loving, and structured environment to learn, explore, and develop their Jewish identity.  When our oldest daughter went to kindergarten, she was confident, prepared, and thrived because of the foundation CJP laid.  Now, as our 4 year old twins are in their final year, we know they will have the necessary social and educational skills to continue on into elementary school.  All of our girls feel loved and comfortable in the school because of the amazing staff and administrators.

As PTO President, I have the pleasure of meeting so many families that make the CJP community something very special.  We have an amazingly diverse group of families that support our preschool, teachers, and each other.  The PTO does awesome things to help all staff and families fell part of the dynamic community that is CJP.  Organizing events for families to meet and socialize, providing teachers with treats for staff meetings, organizing a book fair to get more books to our kids and school, supporting families through our Sunshine committee, supporting the school with Grandparents' Day, Open House, and Graduation are just some of the ways PTO supports CJP.  When you send your child to CJP, they will not only get top-notch Judaic and secular educations, but thy will also know what it's like to feel part of a special community.

We encourage all parents to be part of the PTO. Together we can make a difference.
