Parent Organizations

CPAT is the parent organization here at Stanwood Elementary. 

What is Stanwood CPAT and who can be a member?

Stanwood CPAT is made up of elected board members, our wonderful school staff, and volunteers. If you are a

member! CPAT’s primary objective is to provide funds, resources, and volunteers for special programs that
benefit our school, in order to enhance and enrich each one of our students’ educational experiences.

Kerry Zema, President
Katy Nave, Vice President
Cory Thoma, Co-Treasurer
Heidi Schuman, Co-Treasurer
Jackie Bartlebaugh, Secretary

CPAT Programs and Volunteer Opportunities:

Through various fundraising events throughout the year, CPAT provides many exciting programs and opportunities for our students such as our back-to-school family events, North Pole Spectacular, field trips and in-school assemblies, a Veteran’s Day program, Staff Appreciation Week, Field Day, and so much more. Volunteers are vital to being able to truly make Stanwood Elementary “Someplace Special,” so we hope that you will also consider donating your time throughout the school year. Some are able to volunteer just an hour here and there, while others are able to commit more time. No matter how big or small, every contribution makes a difference for our kids, and each one of our volunteers is greatly appreciated. In order to indicate your interest, please complete the attached form and return to the main office, or click on THIS LINK to submit the form digitally.
