what are we raising money for?

  • Cunningham Creek is so loved along with all the people in it. We need your help to reflect that love by giving CCE a much-needed makeover! Let's give our school a fresh look and start by painting the hallways.

  • The staff are the glue that keep our school together, so when they suggest something we want to try our best to make it happen. Let's encourage them to get our kids outside and give them the outdoor learning spaces that teachers and students can enjoy!

  • Our beloved school mascot, Kirby is ready to fly the nest and retire! It's time to replace Kirby so we can get him back into our beautified hallways that we are going to work so hard to accomplish.
