Cowboy Parent Courier

Message from Dr. Epperson
Hello from CMS! Our PTO met this week and I want to share some notes from the work happening in that organization.
The Cockrill Snack Shack desperately needs regular volunteers to help after school on an ongoing basis. Please help us keep the window open to serve our students and raise funds for our school.
The support of our families has allowed the PTO to make some significant contributions to CMS this year! These include:
Library furniture, Flocabulary Software, Guest Speaker for students and parents, author visit, school dance, Andrew Dutton Scholarship fund and school plaque, Club CREED curriculum, staff appreciation, Cowboy Ticket incentives, 8th grade celebration, and 6th grade Round-Up. This list is not exhaustive, but I want you to see some of the many ways your contributions serve our school. Thank you!!
Notice there is no school Monday, January 21st.
