Hopes and Dreams
Hopes and Dreams is an annual initiative by our School Leadership Team (SLT).
Parents and Staff came together to build our work around The Greening of CPE II & Health and Wellness (Sustainable CPE II); Building our work around Social Justice & Kindness (Creating Compassionate Communities); Working toward a space just for CPE II & supporting the school through grant writing (School Advocacy), and Increasing Parent Participation through better Communication.
A more thorough report will be sent, including specific plans and timelines. This was not just a discussion, but the foundation of 4 working groups that will support our school in moving forward. We are hoping that each of you will find some way to participate in these working groups.

Have you purchased your CPE II COOKBOOK?
The CPEII community has come together to create a cookbook full of healthy recipes and tips for cooking with kids. This book builds on the importance of community, healthy eating and family. CPEII has a diverse student body and our cookbook reflects that. Cooking is a great hands-on, real-life way of exploring science, math, and social studies--things we study in school. Cooking with your child is a fun way to help teach your child about your heritage and/or explore other cultures. Our community cookbook is full of healthy recipes that complement the diversity of our community. This book was created through the Parent Association’s Health and Wellness Committee. The committee’s mission is to promote a collaborative approach to student, family and community health. This book builds on the CPEII Health Food policy, promoting health foods that kids enjoy.
