CMS Event Schedule

April 2018

Volunteers Needed

Parent volunteers are needed to help in a variety of activities happening at CMS.  Please click the link to see the volunteer sign-up schedule.


  • Volunteer Opportunities: Parent and teachers are needed to assist with concessions and other volunteer opportunities at CMS.  Click the volunteer link above to sign-up today.  It's a great way to support our students.

  • CMS PTO Supports Teacher Request:During our February meeting, PTO members agreed to help support Ms. Dibb and the costs of maintaining her classroom animals for biology class.

  • Blu-Ray Player Needed: Mr. Gaser is looking for a Blu-Ray player for his social studies curriculum.  If you have a working Blu-Ray player that can be donated to Mr. Glaser's classroom, please contact Jennifer Ryberg at jryberg@c-ischools.org.

  • CMS PTO is now officially a 501(C)3: The CMS PTO is now recognized by the U.S. Internal Revenue Service as a non-profit organization.  This designation will help us maintain more funds to support our school.

CMS Teachers

We have a quick and easy submission form for teachers to introduce ideas or needs to the PTO.  After submitting the form, teachers will be contacted by a PTO member by email or phone and be added to the upcoming PTO meeting agenda to share their idea in person.

Did you know that teachers joining our monthly meeting at Perkins will be given a free slice of pie in appreciation.  Thank you for all of the work you do with our students and for supporting the PTO.
