Welcome to the 2021/2022 school year at CMS! The mission of the Carmel Middle School PTO is to strengthen and enhance our children’s education and development through the collaborative effort of parents, teachers, and administrators. We’re here to help provide the highest possible educational experience for our students by allowing them to reach maximum potential in all aspects of school life.
Every year, the CMS PTO raises funds and mobilizes parent volunteers to elevate our students’ CMS experience. One of our largest expenses every year is funding a stipend to every teacher at the school to support classroom activities, but we also supplement:
- student scholarships
- special classroom needs
- lunch-time clubs & activities
- honors ceremonies
- Renaissance Faire
- MEarth Habitat lessons
- after-school sports
- end-of-year parties
- promotion ceremony
- ...and more!!
Even though last year was off kilter (to say the least!), the PTO was still able to fund and organize the following teacher requests and student activities:
- Welcome kits for new families
- Student planners
- Superhero-themed teacher appreciation week
- 8th grade brunch and class Luau
- Student fun packs at distance learning materials pick up days
- Family bingo night
- Various grants to teachers such as tie-dye t-shirt kits for science
We would love your participation! Please consider joining our next monthly meeting, contributing to our annual fundraiser, or volunteering your time. Here’s to an amazing year for our kids!
