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.

PTO President's Desk

by Eliza Carney & Rachel Friedman

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.  we have had a unique but but equally special experience while at CJP, and we feel so grateful to be a part of such an incredible community.  Rachel's daughter is in the Half Day Fours and Eliza's daughter is in the Full Day Threes, and we look forward to bringing a new perspective as a Half Day parent and a Full Day parent team leading the PTO.

The PTO does amazing work to help all staff and families feel like they are a part of this dynamic community.  Throughout the school year, the PTO organizes events for families to meet and socialize, provides staff with treats for staff meetings, coordinates a book fair to provide more books to our kids and classrooms, supports families through our Sunshine committee, and plans special events such as Grandparents' Day, Open House, and Graduation.  When you send your children to CJP, they will not only receive top-notch Judaic and secular educations, but they will also know whit it's like to feel part of an incredibly special community.

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