Due to COVID-19, we will monitor this program for the 2020-2021 school year.
Do you love books? Do you enjoy quiet time in the library? Do you have some creativity you've been looking to share at CPES? Do you have a bit of time here or there to volunteer, but not on a consistent basis? Do you have time to volunteer every week? Would you like to volunteer from home? If you answer, "Yes," to ANY of those questions, the library can use your help! Please review the library volunteering possibilities and contact Mrs. Brinkhuis to sign up.
Each year, the PTA supports the library in its fall and spring book fairs. Please click here for current information and to volunteer.
There are a number of events and committees where the Library needs co-chairs and parent volunteers.
Battle of the Books
Want to encourage your 4th 5th or 6th grader in their reading? Want to read some excellent middle-grade books yourself? If either of those interest you, please click to find out more about the Battle of the Books!
Interested in helping your child explore science, technology, engineering, art, and math through makerspace projects. Do you have a background in tinkering, building things, or have a passion or background in engineering, architecture, or science? We have an opportunity for you to join a “makerspace committee.” Committee members can support in-school makerspace projects and our annual Family Maker Night!
Makerspace (during school)
Makerspace activities allow students' learning creatively through art, building, design, coding, and cardboard, lots of cardboard, and duct tape. Maker projects are planned collaboratively with classroom teachers, the Advanced Academic Resource Teacher (AART) and School Based Technology Specialist. We would love to bring additional expertise from our parent community. Time commitment includes planning with staff and if your time allows, supporting the class during the lesson and execution of the activity.
Family Maker Night
Maker Night is an annual evening event in which we have numerous activities focused on science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics (STEAM). We need parent volunteers that are interested in in planning, organizing and leading our Maker Night activities in collaboration with CPES staff. In the past we have had stations with Ozobots, coding, paper circuits, origami, soap powered boats, and a LEGO car race! Join us in making this year the best experience ever!
