Thank you to Robin Chung, Daphne Domingue, and Jenny Lukens for organizing all of the goody bags for our teachers/staff today, and thank you to all of the parents who donated to the staff Valentine’s Day goody bags!
HOW CAN YOU HELP AND BE INVOLVED WITH CMS PTA?
Bringing in new volunteers with fresh ideas is an annual goal of the CMS PTA. To that end, we have developed a brief survey to help find the right position for parents who haven’t yet had the chance to volunteer. Time commitments range from just a few hours one time, to a few hours monthly over the course of the year to accommodate any schedule --even if you work full-time.
By indicating your interest, you are in no way committing yourself; rather, you are alerting the Nominating Committee of your desire to find out more. A member of the Nominating Committee will contact you and discuss the various roles available that fit your interests and skills.
Please consider volunteering for the CMS PTA for the 2017/2018 school year. We’d love to have you!
