Coats for Kids Drive

There is a "Coats for Kids" box in the front hallway at CMSS right across from the Counseling Center door. We are collecting new or gently used coats for kids who are in need this winter. Please consider donating a coat this season.

Christmas for Toys Drive

CMSS will be collecting new or gently used toys for the The "Christmas for Kids" toy drive benefiting local students and their families. Donations will be collected in Advisory classes from November 16-December 17th. The CMSS Advisory class with the most toy donations will win a donut party.

Also, monetary donations to this worthwhile cause may be mailed or dropped off at the Cabot School District's warehouse, 310 G.P. Murrell Drive Cabot, AR 72023, Attn: Bill Holden or Rita Stewart. You may stop by or call them at 743-3560 between the hours of 7:30-4:00 p.m. if you have questions.

Santa Shop!

We are looking forward to this year's Santa Shop! It will be held during lunches in the Kiva from Tuesday (12/8) until Friday (12/11). The students will get a preview day on Monday (12/7) so they can make their list for purchases.

Our PTO sponsors this event in the hopes that students can purchase items for their family members and learn the gift of giving. All profits made go to sponsor students from the Christmas Alliance. Last year we were able to sponsor 20 kids! We are hoping to be able to sponsor even more this year!
