Fundraising


Man Playing on Guitar

Through optional and required fundraising efforts, we raise more than 10% of our budget each year, helping us keep tuition costs low. The programs are:

  • Annual Auctions: Each family is required to participate in our school auctions by committing three hours of their time. These hours can be accomplished by teaching a class, hosting a party or volunteering to help the fundraising team during the school year.
  • Online Shopping Opportunities (scroll down)
  • Optional: Additional community-building programs that earn money for the school, like t-shirt sales, are 100% optional.

Annual Auctions

Each year we host an annual evening silent auction and party as our major fundraising event. This evening is a great opportunity to meet other CPNS families and enjoy a child-free evening that benefits our kids and school. This event is open to family, friends and alumni of CPNS. View event details. Later in the year we hold a silent auction at school that lasts for a week. This is another opportunity to support our school and win some great items.
