Commodore Parent/Teacher Group

 

When do we meet?

The CPTG meets on the 4th Monday of each month. 

 

Who Are We? 

Formed in 2010, we are a group of parents, teachers, and administrators who support communication, family interaction and academics at VUHS

 

Mission Statement 

The CPTG mission is to encourage and support academic and enrichment programs, promote family involvement in the school, and enhance communication between families, students, teachers, administrators, and community members.

 

Since 2012, over $25,000 has been raised by the CPTG to support

  • Annual educational outreach events such as:
    • Presentation of the movie “Screenagers” and student/community
