Getting Ready for the Garden…
Remember the cool garden beds that were prepared in front of each CMS building last fall?  Parent volunteer Alisha Boyajian has been developing plans with the help of interested students and parents to fill those beds with gardens using regenerative practices.  Spring is finally here, so watch this space for updates!

Help Fund Spring Social Events for the Kids
It is great to be able to hold in-person social events for students again!  The grade-level spring socials and Field Day are coming up soon.

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 event expenses.

Please help make these events possible for our great kids with a contribution to the PTG’s “Happy Spring Memories” fund.  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!


Huge thanks to Kristine Millet for faithfully putting together our weekly newsletter for the past two years!  Your steady and dependable presence and your consistently great results, week after week, are much appreciated.
