We Need YOU! REALLY!
I know I sent this last week but we really need some parents to step up for next year's PTO - please consider joining the team!
It is that time of year, when the flowers bloom, the sun starts to feel warm, and the PTO starts looking for new board members. This year our fantastic President Sheri McLeish, amazing secretary Beth Henry, and awesome treasurer Karen Guerin all have soon to be high school students. This means we need new parents to step up and help out!
If you are worried that the time commitment is too much, rest assured it is one meeting per month and some extra help outside of school to organize fundraisers. The president position is easily shared which can make the commitment much easier.
What are the benefits, you ask? So many! You will know more about what's happening in school than your students. You get monthly updates from your school principal (anyone who attends a PTO meeting can get that as well) and you get to help make all the extra programs and activities happen at CMS.
If you are interested in any of the board positions or are willing to take a more active role in the CMS PTO for next year, please come to the next meeting, April 9th at 6:30 or email me with your name and information.
