Help Fund Spring Social Events for the Kids
This school year, only 7% of CMS parents donate to the annual appeal this year. We can’t fund our planned activities without your help. Take this opportunity to donate. The grade-level spring socials and Field Day are coming up soon. Like the rest of world, our expenses are up! Lunches costs more, fuel for generators & transportation at field day are up. We are working diligently to maximize the impact of each dollar spent, as will be reflected in the upcoming roll out of our new streamlined website. We will be hosting a WECO fundraiser in May, but despite these efforts, we need more participation from you.

These spring traditions are the biggest social events of the year for the PTG. They are offered to students at no cost or low cost to enable everyone to attend, so admission fees do not cover the entire event expenses. We also treat our teachers and staff during teacher appreciation week in May, this year with a taco bar, and our annual end of school lunch, after students adjourn in June. But we can’t do this without your support!

Please help make these events possible for our great kids & faculty with a contribution to the PTG’s “Happy Spring Memories” by donating today. Together we can end the year on a high note and give the kids happy memories that will last for many years to come. Thank you!
