Message from President Pate and CMS ASB:

ASB is excited to kick off second semester! We are already starting to plan our second dance of the year as well as a fun little school fundraiser for Valentine’s Day! Stay tuned for more details to come soon!

17th annual Pasta for Pennies Fundraiser: The Junior Optimists are excited to kick off this Monday! The fundraiser will take place from January 27- February 13th. On Monday, students will receive a letter about the fundraiser as well as a personal coin box for donations. 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!
