Messages from CMS Junior Optimists
The Junior Optimists kick off our 17th annual Pasta for Pennies fundraiser: The fundraiser will take place from January 27- February 13th. On Monday the 27th, students will receive their personal coin box to collect donations! They will then turn in their collections weekly to track their progress! Our goal is to raise $4,000 dollars for The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society as a school. The T3 that collects the most money per person will be awarded a pasta party from The Olive Garden restaurant!
To help with the collecting of donations, we have created a Pasta for Pennies page on the Counseling and Support page on PowerSchool. All T3's have a content block with the T3's own personal link added to the page. It can be found at this link: http://bit.ly/360puU3 Parents and students can donate via this link without needing to be signed into PowerSchool. To encourage online donations, any single donation of 150$ will receive a free ticket to Knotts Berry Farms. If you have questions, contact Kevin Ramirez or Matt Smith, Junior Optimist Advisers.
Islander Sports Foundation
CHS Boys Varsity Basketball Games: CMS students are invited to attend "Middle School Night" to show their spirit and support of the CHS Islanders on Friday, February 7 at 7:30 pm at CHS.
