PTG Announcements for Week of January 10

Happy New Year from the PTG!

We hope everyone had a peaceful and joyous winter break.  On behalf of your PTG board of directors, welcome to 2021!  We look forward with high hopes for the new year ahead.

Many thanks to those of you who have contributed to our annual appeal so far.  Please keep those donations coming!  The PTG is in the planning stages to utilize a portion of these funds on some fun family events in the late winter and spring.  Stay tuned, more details to come.

January PTG Meeting Postponed
This month’s PTG meeting, originally scheduled for this Friday, will be postponed to a new date to be determined.


Your PTG Dollars at Work
Our staff appreciation committee was hard at work in December.  Led by Jennie Garofalo and Sue Mulvany, the all-volunteer team distributed servings of “warm holiday wishes” to all CMS staff and faculty in the week before winter break.  Each cup contained a Dunkin Donuts gift card and some sweet treats, with a message of thanks attached.  Thank you to our donor families whose generous contributions to the PTG have made this project possible.


THANK YOU!!!
Big thanks to Sue Mulvany, Jennie Garofalo and the staff appreciation team for organizing and assembling such a fun December treat for the CMS employees.

CMS and the PTG strive to bring quality programming to the Peabody and Sanborn buildings and to support students and staff throughout the year.  We are looking forward to the New Year and to bringing you some exciting family events.  We thank all of our families whose donations already made this year are helping to make this possible.

On this last day of 2020, if you are able to donate to the CMS PTG’s Annual Appeal we welcome gifts of any size.  If your employer has a corporate matching program we can help you through the process of securing their donation.  The CMS PTG is a 501(c)(3) entity and all gifts are tax deductible.

Happy New Year!
