Mrs. Gilles does an amazing job of including everyone student in the performance with a special part.  The audience was entertained from start to finish!

The CPS PTO is once again providing the Zoo Club Program for students once a month.  The Akron Zoo visits CPS once a month to educate students about different animals.  The Akron Zoo brings along many animal friends such as rabbits, turtles and ducks to name a few.  Students are able to touch the animals and last month students were able to feed the ducks right out of their hands.  Mrs. Nicole Santin is in charge of Zoo Club and along with her volunteers she provides a snack and an amazing time for our students.
