PTO Board at CMSW
Published: Thu, Apr 2, 2015, 12:48PM CDT

Many of you have a child currently at West or are about to send your first…the PTO Board in middle school functions exactly the same as it does on the elementary school level. Our goal is support the administration and staff in order to provide the student with the best educational experience possible. Events and programs are coordinated by parents like you who are dedicated to their child’s education. Parental involvement does not end or lessen in middle school, if anything, the need increases. There are a variety of ways you can become involved at West, but we are currently seeking to fill the positions of Fundraising Chair (coordinates the one and only fundraiser put on by the PTO, with the assistance of three committee members), Membership (responsible for promoting PTO Membership and creating the directory, Webmaster and Asst. Webmaster (responsible for maintaining the PTO website throughout the year). If you are interested in any of these or any other ways to become involved at CMSW, please contact JV Dasgupta at jataveda@gmail.com

Have Box Tops to Turn In?
Published: Mon, Mar 16, 2015, 12:07PM CDT

Please keep cutting and sending in your Boxtops!! They mean seem inconsequential but these little squares add up quickly to major funds raised to support VRE! So thank you for your diligence on this and keep up the good work!

For every 100 turned in by a class, they’ll receive an entry into a drawing. Drawing will be held at the end of the year, and will be for a pizza lunch for the winning class. So send them to school with your child and maybe your child’s class will be the one to win!
