Class of 2017
The next Senior Parent meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, September 20th @ 6:30pm in the CPHS Media Center.
Summer vacation has ended and school is back in session so that can only mean one thing.....FUNDRAISING SEASON!!!! Well, I am not trying to sell you any nuts, pizza or cookie dough (but I do hear rumors about a butter braid coming soon). What I am offering you is the opportunity for fun and entertainment added with the chance to win some cash. The Senior Parents have begun planning for the Class of 2017 events and we want to send out an invite to everyone to participate in any of our fundraising efforts.
Saturday, October 8th
7:00pm - 11:30pm
Get the teens off to homecoming dance and come out for some fun with your fellow parents and friends. What is a poker run? A poker run is an event where participants must visit five checkpoints drawing a playing card at each location. The best poker hand at the end of the run WINS!
Cost to participate in this event is $25 per hand. Winner will receive 20% payout of total hands.

A couple of months ago I was asked, "What committee are you thinking about joining?" My response was....."I want to be on the MAKE THIS THE BEST SENIOR YEAR EVER COMMITTEE!" I encourage all Senior Parents of the Class of 2017 to join this committee.
DON'T FEAR THE FUNDRAISER!! There is so much to be done this year and so many opportunities for you to be involved, while still having fun, to make this year memorable for our kids. Fundraising doesn't have to be hard or dreaded. Simply find something that you are interested in and go with it. Chances are their are others with similar interests that would love the opportunity to participate. So, whether you have an interest in running a Bunco or Euchre Tournament, Human Foosball or maybe even Game Show Trivia, step out of your comfort zone and join in!! Together we will make this THE BEST SENIOR YEAR EVER FOR THE CLASS OF 2017!
If you have a Student graduating with the Class of 2017, please make plans to join us.
