Dear CAPS Parents and Guardians:
Welcome to Cornerstone Academy Preparatory School’s Parents’ Association (PA)!
The PA is a self-motivated and energetic organization! You are invited and encouraged to attend our monthly PA meetings, which are meant to be informative of upcoming events, new initiatives, and policies. Attending these meetings is the best way to obtain clear and concise answers to questions that you might have about future events, rule changes, etc. Attending also gives you first-hand access to events or changes that affect your child and his/her academic life.
Our CAPS community building events include, but are not limited to the following:
- Distribution of monthly CAPS Newsletter
- Partnering with CAPS Sunshine Committee
- CAPS Homeroom Parent Program
- Donuts with Dad
- Annual Stargazing Night
- Muffins with Mom
- CAPS Community Year-end BBQ
We raise significant amounts of money for the school through the following fundraisers:
- Annual CAPS Jog-a-thon, October 17, 2014
- Family Movie Night, November 7, 2014 & April 24, 2015
