Given current concerns surrounding COVID-19 the Parent Association has elected to cancel the upcoming Staff Appreciation Potluck, Fun Lunch, and Lunch Lady.

Both the Lunch Lady events on March 17 and 31, as well as  Healthy Hunger’s Simple Simon event on March 18 have been cancelled. Please bear with us we navigate refunds for families who have purchased items in this months upcoming events. We hope to have more clarity around future events at the beginning of April following Spring Break. If you have any questions or concerns please contact us at cjpfunlunch@gmail.com.

We are so grateful for all our staff and teachers do and hope to schedule a future event to replace our Staff Appreciation Potluck, so stay tuned! The Parent Association is still looking for a Teacher Appreciation Potluck Coordinator to take over the role starting Sept 2020. Support for next year is available! If you are interested, please email cjpvolunteercoord@gmail.com for more information.

Thank you to all volunteers who signed up to contribute to these events, we are so thankful for your willingness make CJP a wonderful place for all our students and staff!

Volunteer with Us

While COVID-19 Measures are in Place

In-person visitors and volunteers will not be allowed in CBE schools at this time. This includes guest speakers, sports-team coaches and artists in residence. Individuals are encouraged to communicate with the school through email or by phone. Currently, parent volunteers are not permitted in the school building. However, we are optimistic that we will find ways to work with parent volunteers later in the school year.​

Please visit our COVID-19 page for the most up-to-date information. Our plan is subject to change throughout the school year as more information becomes available.

We welcome volunteers in the classroom, on field trips and with certain tasks at school or at home. Certain activities or field trips would not be possible without the active participation of our volunteers. Contact us about ways you can volunteer with our school.

Visit the CBE website for more information on volunteering, including the required registration and Police Information Check. (Please note, guest speakers or visitors to the school, and parents/guardians assisting their own child only are not considered to be volunteers and do not require a police information check.) 

Volunteering for an Off-Site Activity

If you want to volunteer for an off-site activity, please keep in mind:
