Our Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) is an active, committed group of parent and teacher volunteers that creates a caring school community, as well as organizes volunteer and fundraising activities.  Our members, 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.  All parents are welcome and encouraged to become active in the PTO.

On behalf of the Parent Teacher Organization (PTO), welcome to the Charlotte Jewish Preschool (CJP)!

We are thrilled to be serving as co-presidents again this year at our incredibly special preschool.  We have both had the most wonderful experience with our daughters at CJP over the past few years.  Every teacher and staff member has provided a balanced, loving, and structured environment to learn, explore, and develop their Jewish identities, and we are grateful to be a part of such an incredible community.  

Although this year may look a little different than years past, the PTO is committed to creating unique was to help all staff and families feel like they are a part of this dynamic community.  With your support, this year the PTO will organize virtual points of connection for families to meet and socialize, celebrate our amazing staff, coordinate a virtual book fair to provide more books to our kids and classrooms, support families through our Sunshine Committee, and re-imagine special events throughout the year, like Purim and Graduation.

As circumstances are ever-evolving, we are continuing to build out our calendar of events for this school year.  Please save the dates from our current Calendar of Events that can be found in the PTO packet.

Now more than ever, we encourage you all to join the PTO and take an active role in making the CJP experience special for our kids and staff.  You can also help by participating in meetings and by volunteering your time on a committee as much as your schedules allow.  We look forward to working together to ensure an amazing year here at the Charlotte Jewish Preschool!

For more information or to volunteer, please contact Eliza and Rachel at PTOCJP@gmail.com.  To join the PTO please fill out the PTO packet and return it to your child's classroom.

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