Starlight Auction + Gala (Fundraiser, Friday, March 10, 2017)

One of CL’s biggest fundraisers & parent party of the year, often raising more than $150,000 for our kids. Featuring a Silent & Live Auction - CL families take on securing donations via our local business community, with fantastic ‘finds’ for bidders such as restaurants, camps, classes & fab vacations, just to name a few. Starlight also offers us a chance to visit with other parents we don’t see every day, mingle with our amazing teachers/staff, and enjoy a grown up evening out! Visit our page for more details.


Parking Lot Events (Fundraiser, Fall-Spring) 

 Our Scott/Marina parking lot moonlights on key weekends for city events = great PTA funds.  


Book Fair (Fall - Spring)

Multiple Scholastic Book Fairs at Madison - great parent/kid shopping + fundraising for CL.


Science Night (April)

Nights of hands-on science for all grades & families at Scott and Madison campuses. Each features a roomful of stations with science-based activities ranging from dissection and DNA to sound harmonics and slime-making.   Parents can both staff ready-to-go booths, or families can create booths to share.


New Family Meet-ups (April - July)

CL community hosts 2 Meet-ups for incoming families at Julius Kahn Playground, APR & JUL. Incoming parents get to know each other & CL families over bagels, coffee & kid playtime.


Mayfair Carnival (Fundraiser, May)

Scott Campus turned carnival! Enjoy lots of games, a cake walk & a chance to soak teachers in the dunk tank!  Plus a raffle, a rummage sale, arts & crafts, a jumpy house & food and music. All booths staffed by our wonderful CL parent volunteers. Although this event does help raise money for CL, it's mostly a FUN-raiser - a day for our families & celebrating CL community. 


Maydance (May) 

Join CL families for an AM outdoor dance performance by each grade. Kids rehearse a lot in advance and wow us with great moves and fun/crazy music.  Don't miss it! Held at Scott Campus.
