CPES PTO NEED YOU!

We are excited for YOU to work along side us! Do you want to have a better vision of how schools work? Or would you like to work more closely with the administration? Join the Canyon Pointe Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) for the 2019-2020 school year.


We currently are in need of a Secretary on our main board. This position would take our monthly meeting notes and champion this monthly digital newsletter. There are many other helpful volunteer spots available as well. We would love to have two volunteers for each committee. Please Contact us at info@canyonpointepto.com for nominations and let us know if you are interested in helping with the yearbook, organizing the "Trunk or Treat" or any family events, photography, school fundraisers, selling items from the school "Spirit Wear", bilingual liaison, homeroom parents, social media coordinator or any position that can be done entirely from home. The more the merrier!


Also, keep your eyes open for a PTO survey coming to you! We want to know how we can serve you and your kids best, so your opinion matters! It will ask just a few questions about this year and what you see for the future. Thank you again for giving us this important information!

STAAR Test - May 13th - 16th

3rd and 4th Grade STAAR Math and Reading will be on May 13th and May 14th respectively with makeup testing on the 15th and 16th.


Please make sure that your child:

• gets a good night’s sleep

• gets things together the night before so you’re not rushed in the morning

• starts day in a calm manner

• has a good breakfast

• is NOT late arriving at school


So they can do well on this very important test. It is recommended (but not required) that students bring their lunch on these testing days. Also, there will be no lunch visitors or volunteers allowed May 13-16 while there is testing.

Field Day - May 29th

Our reschedule field day for the school will be ready to go on May 29th, before the last day of school. Parents be sure to pre-register via the online link if you would like to attend and/or volunteer. If you do not pre-register prior to the event you will be asked to check in at the front desk.


If you would like to volunteer please sign-up via the link on Mrs. England's CPES webpage after you have pre-registered or see links below. Volunteers and Guests will need to show photo ID upon entry to field day. Check in will be at the back gate.


Reminder that students must wear athletic shoes (with socks) and clothing which allows for maximum comfort and movement. Apply sunscreen At Home before school and pack a sack lunch.
