Fundraising and Community Partnerships


Welcome back​ to another exciting year at the Center for Creative Learning! We all know how fortunate our children are to attend this very exceptional school and one way to ensure we keep the CCL unique is by raising money to support and enhance the very sophisticated, ever-changing curriculum. Your CCL-PTO strives to donate a substantial sum of money to CCL every year to provide our students access to the very best in available technology and learning resources. Our goal for the 2017-2018 school year is $30,000.

We are again conducting our major fundraiser by asking for voluntary donations from our CCL parents. In this way, we hope to reduce the number of times parents will be asked to make PTO purchases, save a great deal of volunteer effort, and yet yield excellent results for the program.

Funds donated by the PTO directly impact the children and their learning environments. Your donations support everything from aiding students in extraordinary field trips, guest speakers, to specialized computer programs for student learning. Funds donated by the PTO in past years have been used to purchase student computers, student recording cameras, and tablets. It has also supported the purchase of supplies for students to complete and polish their end-of- semester projects. All of this was made possible by our very special parents at CCL.

As we did last year, the CCL-PTO will coordinate our Experience CCL Week Book Fairs, CCL School Supply Packets, and Art to Remember as our only additional fundraisers. These efforts relate to student learning and have been a small, but valued part of the PTO's activities for many years.

A form for making donations is provided in this packet. One hundred percent of each tax-deductible donation will go directly to supporting CCL programs. We simply ask that you make checks payable to the CCL-PTO and write "Donation" in the memo section.  Credit card payments are accepted on the gifted website for your convenience.  Acknowledgement letters will be sent to each donor thanking them for their gift. The letter will serve as a receipt for tax deduction purposes.

Thank you so much for your generous support! Your PTO donations make the difficult attainable every day in this tight economy. Our families are what make The Center for Creative Learning such a remarkable place. We hope you all have a wonder-filled CCL year!

​P.S. If you work for a large corporation, please ask if your donation is eligible for a matching gift program.​

 Gifted Parent Support Network

​The Gifted Parent Support Network is a group of 3-4 parents of CCL students from each homeschool to be touch points​ for support, to share resources, and to provide feedback for continued communication with Rockwood's Gifted Education administration.

Please email the PTO if you have questions, suggestions, or would like to represent your elementary school.
