The Creative Parents Association (CPA) is a dynamic group of parents dedicated to staying involved in their children’s academic and emotional education. The main goal of the parent’s association is to help Creative Beginnings be an even better place for our children to grow and learn!

CPA works with the school administration to raise funds through fun, annual events like raffles, the March Madness Bracket Challenge, School Clean Up Days, Smarty Party, and a holiday fundraiser. The funds raised help supply the classrooms and playgrounds with new educational materials, and support teacher appreciation initiatives, to remind our top-notch teachers how much we appreciate the work they do with our children every day.

The Meetings 
The CPA monthly meetings are a fun, casual way to get involved and learn how you can give back to Creative Beginnings! We have a great group of parents who attend, share some snacks (and sometimes a drink or two!) and help support our school!

We share expert information about important topics like how to make the right school choices after Creative Beginnings and tackle the tough topics with an annual Darkness to Light training. We also have several social events for parents to get together and share a little grown-up conversation!

Babysitting for Meetings
Babysitting is provided at the school during CPA meetings and socials, by a current or former CB teacher and dinner is included! The cost is $10/per child, $5/per sibling. If you need to reserve your spot(s) for babysitting, please email Kristin Hackler.
