What's Happening In the Fifth Grade

Valentine Party Box Information

Our fifth grade Valentine Party is Friday, February 12th at 1:30. Your child will need to bring a decorated valentine box for valentines and goodies. The boxes need to be about the size of a shoe box and can be decorated however you like. They are due the day of the party.

Colleyville Middle School PTA Information

I am a parent on the Colleyville Middle School PTA and we are already underway for an outstanding 2016-2017 school year! The CMS PTA Nominating Committee extends the invitation for your 5th grade parents who will have children coming to CMS the opportunity to share their time and talents for the benefit of our children. I have a attached a list of the PTA volunteer positions available at CMS. Also, below is the link to the CMS PTA interest form that we would love for all parents who have children coming to Colleyville Middle School to fill out.

We are very excited about having these 5th graders at CMS next year and want the parents to know they are welcome and that they can become involved.

If there any questions, don’t hesitate to ask me.

Thank you,

Angie Wallace
