Welcome Parents & Guardians to the 2012-2013 school year at Claude Pepper Elementary School (CPE).

We, the Parent Teacher Association (PTA) are proud of our great school and the support we provide our teachers and students each year. CPE's goal is to encourage each mom and dad, grandparent, family member or friend to sign up for our annual PTA membership. 
 
WHY JOIN THE PTA?
 
Get connected: It is a great way to know what is happening in your school.
 
To grow: By volunteering you will gain valuable experience, put your skills, hobbies or spare time to good use for a great cause and in the process meet new people.  Help make positive change: You will be able to offer and share new ideas.
 
Plus the PTA plays an important role in fundraising to provide curriculum supplies, social events, and helps students partake in special events.
 
By being a member of the PTA, you support your school by helping to provide funds which enable us to financially support the school and its students.  A PTA membership is $6.00 per adult; (checks can be made out to the Claude Pepper Elementary School PTA). PTA membership envelopes will be sent home with your child(ren) within the first few weeks of school. 
 
In recruiting and organizing volunteers for this year is simple: to provide each student with the best educational experience possible. We need your help to accomplish this goal.
 
Remember, when you invest your time in our school, you help to form bonds that make us not just an institution, but a community. Further, seeing your commitment to the school will increase your child's sense of commitment to the whole Claude Pepper Elementary experience.
 
We have many great events throughout the year, but we cannot make them happen without help from our dedicated parents. There are lots of opportunities to help out - at school or from home, on weekdays, evenings or weekends. We have something to fit everyone's schedule!

In order to be a CPE volunteer you MUST visit dadeschools.net to join the Miami-Dade County School parent portal.

Thank you in advance for your time, our children are worth it!
