HELP NEEDED… Please share this post…

HELP NEEDED… Please share this post…
We had a student who sold 3 Enjoy the City coupon books for our fundraiser. Unfortunately, the form was returned without either the student’s or teacher’s name. The 3 books were sold to: Melissa Tarasoff, Michele Polidoro and Nicole Sorstram (none of these names are in the CMMS database). If anyone out there knows these ladies, could you have them reply to this post so we can identify the student who sold them their books. These 3 ladies were kind enough to support CMMS so we’d like to get them their coupon books ASAP. Please share this post – – Thanks so much for any help!!!

Our “Enjoy the City” Coupon Book Fundraiser has been extended! However, there are many books still outstanding. If you are purchasing your book (or selling more, hopefully), we need monies and order forms turned in. If you are not purchasing your book, please return it to school ASAP. We appreciate everyone’s honesty and integrity. If you’re not purchasing the ETC book, that’s fine but please return it ASAP.

Back-to-School “Blast Off” Dance!!!

Well, consensus says Friday night’s Back-to-School “Blast Off” dance was a great success!! Our awesome DJ rocked the house and the cafe was probably 20 degrees hotter in the front and center from all the dancing & singing! Congratulations to our 3 raffle winners…Diego Burgos, Brianna Potter and Pilar Vina. They won a Cinemark movie gift card along with some popcorn & candy! Another shout-out to the winner of our “World’s largest Gummy Bear” raffle…Jasmine Neering. A special thank you to our staff and parent volunteers who lent a hand. We appreciate all your help to make the evening run smoothly. Finally, props to the CMMS custodial crew who worked their magic and returned the cafe to its original condition…all set and ready for school on Monday. Plans are underway for our Halloween Bash coming up on October 24th. More details coming soon…

**If you’d like to photos from the dance and our contest winners, please visit our Facebook page**

If you pre-ordered a Friday Spirit shirt, all orders have been filled and should be delivered either today or tomorrow to your student. PTSA will be selling t-shirts, PTSA memberships for $10(includes calendar) and Enjoy the City coupon books ($20/book) for our Fall fundraiser. Please be sure to stop by our table at tonight’s Open House, 6 to 8 pm!! Pack your patience and allow plenty of time as parking will be challenging, to say the least :)





Our new & improved CMMS Friday Spirit shirts were very popular at orientation! If you pre-ordered a shirt in Youth XL or Ladies & Men’s S, we received word that the shirts will be ready next week. Due to the back log of “back to school” orders for numerous other entities, this delay in receiving our extra inventory was unavoidable. As soon as we get the shirts in, your orders will be processed and delivered to your student. Please pass the word…

We appreciate your patience (and support of PTSA) 




Today starts our biggest fundraiser of the year, the Enjoy the City Coupon Book!! Check those backpacks as each student should have been given a coupon book and envelope today by their teacher.

If you purchase that book, please send in your $20 in the envelope. If you need additional books to purchase/sell, please mark the envelope accordingly and send it in, your order will be filled as quickly as possible. Finally, if you choose not to purchase your book, your student should RETURN IT to the teacher who distributed it to them so that the $20 will not appear on your obligation list.

We know other local organizations/schools/teams are also selling these coupon books to raise funds. Please, Please consider purchasing yours from CMMS and support YOUR child’s school at the same time. If we could have every family purchase/sell just one book, that would be a tremendous boost for our PTSA which, in turn, is a tremendous boost for our students and school.

Don’t forget…Student Incentives for this fundraiser – –
* Top 5 sellers each earn $50 (must sell 10+ books to qualify).
* Anyone who sells 10+ books receives a $10 Cinemark Movie gift card

Please support CMMS and help us to help our Challenger family!! Many thanks for your support!!





Our first School Advisory Council (SAC) meeting is in two (2) weeks – on Monday, September 15th, beginning at 6:00 pm.

Jennifer Hamilton has been our Chair for the past 3 years and has done a wonderful job, but her term is now over. We are looking for someone to replace her as Chair, as well as to fill in vacancies for the Vice Chair, parent members, and Business/Community partners.

The SAC is required to have parents as voting members and we are currently in need of parents to fill this role. The commitment is to attend the monthly meetings and to represent our parents.

If you are a business owner or partner, we need your representation as well.

If you are interested in either the Chair, Vice Chair, parent member or business partner positions, please contact Jennifer Hamilton. The first meeting is Monday, September 15th.
