Welcome back to school! Let’s partner to make this a safe and wonderful year for everyone. We will do all that we can to keep our CP community safe. Help us to do that by sharing information with your children and talking with them about what to expect. Teachers will send classroom specific information.
Welcome to a new Community Park school year. We are excited to be returning to school in person and full day! I remain dedicated to serving as your principal and maintaining a clear vision for school unity and connectedness through conversation, programs, and events. The realities of the COVID virus remain and thus require us to maintain safety protocols and flexibility. As your principal, my goal for this year is to lead the faculty as we rebuild our learning community.
Back to School Night will be held virtually on September 23. Please check your email for links to the videos and to live presentations.
Are you looking for after school care for your child in one of the PPS elementary schools? PPS has partnered with the YMCA to provide after school programs at Community Park, Johnson Park, Littlebrook and Riverside.

Community Park will have its Virtual Back to School Night on September 17. Here's a preview of the schedule:
Community Park recently held its first Virtual Field Day and P.E. teacher Mr. Chorba praised all the CP students and parents who made it a success.
Here is a message from Mr. Chorba: "WOW! We had an amazing the number of participants for our virtual Field Day. I received over 100 pictures and videos. Your enthusiasm and effort was outstanding. Thank you for making it a success. Every grade was represented for pictures and videos. The grade that had most videos and pictures (and the most bonus points) was Kindergarten!"
CP teachers were happy to have a week off to re-group before jumping back into remote learning. What did the staff do over spring break? For one thing, they made this video for their students. Check it out here.
