Cedar Park Middle School - 3/1/18

A message from our PTC President:

As we head into March and we hope an end to the winter weather, we come to the realization that the second half of the school year moves quickly. We are already thinking about the 2018-19 school year at Cedar Park. We would like to fill some volunteer positions for next year now so we are ready for the new school year without missing a beat. First of all, we are looking for a new Volunteer Coordinator to oversee our committees.

The committees for next year we would like to fill now are:

  • Art Lit ~ we are excited to continue art lit at Cedar Park and implement a new platform where presentations will be done in class, likely Humanities. The current art lit coordinators have kids moving to high school so now is the time to work with them on the training. A big thank you to MaryBeth Piccirilli and Daphne Teals for chairing art lit the last three years and keeping this program going!
  • 5K Jogathon ~ our only fundraiser! As with art lit, our great coordinators (Thank you Erin Hirer and Torey Muhs) are moving on to high school.
  • PBIS Store
  • Back to School/New Family Picnic
  • Wolf Day
  • Staff Appreciation
  • 8th Grade BBQ

Additionally, if you think the Volunteer Coordinator position would be a good fit for you, there is already a Better Impact/Myvolunteerpage User Group Workshop coming up that we would love for you to attend! Thursday, March 8, 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. or 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the district office.

Volunteers Needed for Staff Appreciation

Staff appreciation has been rescheduled for March 14th. We will be providing an early dinner for the teachers (and staff) before they start conferences. We'll still do soup and breads but we'd like to add salads as well. All previous sign ups have been deleted so re-sign up if you'd like to help. This is a great opportunity to contribute if you're a parent unable to help out during the school day.

  • To bring SALAD - sign up HERE

Corporate Matching

We are still waiting for the last of our 5K dollars to come in. We haven’t officially reached our goal until the last of the money comes in. Do you still need to submit your corporate matching? If so, please get that done. Every bit helps. If you are unsure the steps to take or need further documentation of your donation, please contact out treasurer Mark Chen. (

Corporate matching is something that can be done any time of the year. There's no need for an event to get in the giving mood.
