What is the PTO?

The CMS PTO promotes and encourages communication between parents, teachers, administration and the community. The PTO sponsors and organizes fundraising and school events which deepen our community spirit and enrich our children’s educational, social and developmental experiences while at CMS.

All CMS parents, guardians and faculty are considered members of the PTO. There are no PTO membership dues. The CMS PTO relies on volunteers to successfully organize events and raise money for student field trips and activities. Parents, guardians, and faculty are encouraged to donate time and/or money during one or more of our community events and fundraising campaigns. We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. All donations are tax deductible. Our tax id number is 94-3481573.
