President's Message

President Message


PTA has many fun, family events planned to welcome you back to school in August!  PTA looks forward to meeting new families and reconnecting with returning families at the Welcome Back Ice Cream Social on Sunday, August 18th from 3pm to 5pm.  We will be at the Cipriani Blacktop/Playground at the back of the school.  Due to limited parking, please consider walking to Cipriani.

The district-wide New Parent Orientation is on Wednesday, August 14th from 6:30pm to 8:00pm at Nesbit Elementary.  Superintendent Michael Milliken will make a presentation to all parents, followed by a break-out session where parents will have a chance to hear from and ask questions of the Principal, a PTA representative, and a SchoolForce representative from their school.  

The First Day of School is Wednesday, August 21st.  After dropping off your child please join the PTA for Coffee, Cake and Conversation on the Front Lawn at 8:30am.

Finally, our education foundation, SchoolForce, is hosting a Welcome Back event on Sunday, August 25th at Devil’s Canyon Brewery in San Carlos. This family-friendly event will feature free snacks, free activities for kids, and there will be a no-host bar for the adults.

We look forward to seeing you at these events!  Please feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions.

PTA Board members are here if you have any questions or concerns about our school community. Please reach out! We love to hear from you. 

The Cipriani PTA provides critical programs and resources that benefit every Cipriani student.

Your volunteer time and financial donations directly impact your child’s classroom and school – immediately enriching the quality of your child's education.

Examples of programs and resources that exist only through the efforts of the PTA include:


- Art In Action


- Computers & Technology in classrooms


- Staff Development & Teacher Subs


- Discovery Day


- Expanding libraries in classrooms


- Educational Assemblies & Field Trips


- Community Activities


- Parent Education


- Classroom materials


- Field Trips

State funding alone does not provide sufficient resources to deliver the quality of education Cipriani has historically provided.  To learn more about how you can contribute to Cipriani's PTA and ensure these programs and resources are available to our students, click on Support the PTA (form coming soon).
