Thank you to everyone who helped us reach our 2023 goal!

Did you forget to participate by the deadline this year?  You can still donate to the CPES PTA at any time throughout the year by clicking here.  


  • The three classes with the highest participation are Heyer, Trivoulides, and Drew! And, because we reached our goal, the entire school wins a pajama day!

  • Great job, everyone!! We reached our goal of $12,000 because of YOU! 


Announcing the 2023 Cardinal Campaign 

Each year, donations from Cunningham Park families help fund the numerous programs the PTA sponsors. It is because of your support that the PTA is able to provide community events, assemblies, buses for field trips, school technology, and treats to keep our teachers happy! Unlike other fundraisers during which children need to sell something, 100% of all funds from the Cardinal Campaign support Cunningham Park Elementary School.  To ensure we can continue to support our community, this year’s goal is to raise $12,000!
