Lucky Us! That mischievous leprechaun arrived again this year to delight the children with gold coins, mysterious messes, and the ever popular, magical green water in the potty! Several classes set traps for him, but he is tiny and clever and avoided capture...

The cherry blossoms peaked early and always remind me that some of life's most beautiful things are temporary. We should stop and appreciate them when we can. Speaking of appreciation, our Ready, Set, Jet Auction was a fantastic success! Thanks to owners Jeremy and Kate Carman for hosting us at the beautiful Dauphine's restaurant and to our tireless co-chairs, the McCombs and the Richardsons. Their dedication to CCPC is inspiring.

Please enjoy Spring Break and DC's glorious season of abundant flowers and mild breezes. We look forward to the last few months of school as the children blossom before our eyes with new confidence, skills and friendships.

With appreciation,
What an Evening!
Thank you to Auction Chairs
Devon & Charlie McCombs
Lindsey & Bennett Richardson
for a memorable night!

To all our generous bidders and wonderful committee, your support is so appreciated. This year's event raised a record-breaking amount of funds for our school. We are so grateful.

There are still some sign-up classroom party openings and Mamas & Margaritas too!
