CMA Giving Tree

Dear CMA Family

It’s that time of year again for the CMA Giving Tree. Attached is the application to have your student/family placed on the tree for adoption. Once I begin to gather applications, I will add them to the Sign Up website and send out a link at a later date. If you have difficulty with the form, please either call/email Mr. Garnica to ensure he gets the information. For those of you new to CMA, this is our own, in-house version of the Salvation Army Angel Tree. CMA is a generous and kind community that helps to support all families. So please do not hesitate to ask for help. It is completely anonymous and has been a great success in years past.

Comet Credit Store Donations needed

Created by last year's 6th grade PBL classes, our Credit system is directly tied to our student IDs earning credits for doing what they are supposed to do and going above and beyond. There are also ways to lose credits by making choices that are less than favorable. Students will be able to purchase opportunities and products on Mondays, Weds, and Fridays during lunch time in the Concession Stand (now to be known as the Comet Store during MS lunch).


We are taking donations of various cases of soda, chips (hot and not), candies and more!


If you would like to help us fund the Comet Store, please let Bookkeeper Ana know 973-9999.
