Family Fun Day

The 15th Annual Family Fun Day will be held on Saturday, March 2, 2019.

Family Fun Day provides a full day of fun for the whole family and it has become an annual tradition at Coral Gables Preparatory Academy.  The event is held on the P.E. field, which is transformed with rides, games, food, music, and other attractions.

The event is the largest fundraiser of the year for the CGPA PTSA and requires a lot of time and effort by our parent volunteers and supporters.   Net profits ranged from $20,000 to $25,000 in the last three years.  The money raised goes towards the many contributions made by the PTSA to the school, including the AR program, intramural sports, music supplies, art programs, social events, and teacher appreciation, amongst many others.

Family participation and volunteers is crucial to the event’s success.
