Our 'Small & Mighty' PTO is comprised of both parents and teachers who collaborate to host family events, fundraisers, and support our students and teachers through field trips, experiences, and other creative ideas!

PTO's most recent projects came from the funds raised at our 3rd and 4th  Annual family fun Turkey Trot fundraiser events! Because of the amazing success of this fundraiser, PTO was able to contribute $15,000 (nearly half of the total cost) towards the new playground additions installed in March 2020 and $10,000 to purchase the new rock climbing wall in the gymnasium! Over the previous recent years, PTO has contributed more than $35,000 towards new technology for CEE, with the purchase of high tech portable computer carts and laptops that can easily move from classroom to classroom to provide every single student the opportunity to use technology in the classroom!  CEE PTO welcomes the involvement of parents with a collaborative environment that allows everyone to voice their ideas, creativity and expertise!  CEE PTO does not require a membership fee, rather we encourage your participation any time you are able to join for meetings or volunteer opportunities!  


*Special thanks to Melissa and Nate Shadle and their crew at Nasha Construction for donating the installation our new rock climbing wall!
