Cheldelin Parent Organization (CPO)

Welcome to the 2017-18 school year

The Cheldelin Parent Organization (CPO) would like to welcome the 6th grade and new-to-Cheldelin families and our returning 7th and 8th grade families.  We hope you had a nice break from school and are looking forward to a positive and productive school year.


The CPO is essential to enhancing and extending the learning opportunities for our students.  We raise money to support activities and events such as grade level field trips and experiences, competitive academic entrance fees, assemblies, teacher grant requests, and yearbook scholarships.  We also support our teachers and staff by providing conference meals/staff appreciation and honor our outgoing 8th graders with a party/breakfast at the end of the school year.


We would love for you to join us!  CPO meetings are held on every first Tuesday of the month starting on October 3rd in the Cheldelin library at 7:00 p.m.

The meeting agenda will be sent via the listserv prior to the meeting and may include guest speakers, a Principal’s report and monthly business.  Topics for guest speakers may include (but are not limited to): Internet safety, Cheldelin’s public safety officer/purpose, curriculum/teaching methods and strategies, state testing (Smarter Balanced), ipads/technology, AVID program, mental health issues, etc.


The CPO Officers and Coordinators for the year are:

Genevieve Raich President
Cori Bland Treasurer
Radhika Sriram and Christine Mueller Secretary

Jana Compton Impact Cheldelin Coordinator
Jeannette Hovermale Dine Out Coordinator
Patricia Sterns Teacher Grant Request Committee Coordinator
Marganne Huang Box Tops Coordinator

CPO has two major ways that we raise money for our students: Impact Cheldelin, our annual direct donation drive that will begin at the end of September and run through mid-November and Dine Outs that will be scheduled throughout the year. If you have any questions, please contact us.
