Welcome Back!
Published: Fri, Aug 19, 2016, 09:11AM CDT

Welcome Back to the 2016 – 2017 School Year!
With the First Day of School right around the corner, we wanted to take this time to welcome and wish you a wonderful school year on behalf of the entire PTO Board.
This Back to School edition of Pawprints has reminders and sign ups to help you get started – look for updates and information in your inbox on most friday’s throughout the school year in our PTO newsletter.

The team of parents on our PTO board have been preparing for a variety of activities and events to help enrich each student’s experience this year ~ If you have not already, we encourage you to join the PTO. Your membership supports your campus and represents the dedication that all parents have to their student’s school.

Becoming involved is a great way to meet other parents; as well as the teachers and administrators, and there are many ways to become involved throughout the year. Please take some time to look at the different volunteer opportunities that are posted in the newsletter to see where you may be able to help. We would not be able to do as many wonderful things as we do for both our students and our tremendous staff at North if it were not for the generous support of parents like you.

In addition to volunteer support our PTO plays an important role in fundraising for our campus for resources that would not otherwise be available to our students.
An important initiative at the start of the school year is our Write A Check Campaign. Through this fundraising event 100% of your contributions go directly to our school. Giving is simple. You can either write a check or you can go to the PTO webstore and contribute. Our goal is 100% participation. With over 900 students on our campus any amount with 100% participation can go a long way. Please join us in helping us meet the needs of the campus this school year with your support. This is the fundraiser that will make the most immediate impact to your student at North.

We wish you and your family a great school year. Middle school is such an important step in our student’s secondary education and we know this year will provide tremendous opportunities for your student.
If you have any questions for the PTO just reply back to any newsletter or you can reach us at CMSNorthPTO@gmail.com.
We would be happy to help!
2016 – 2017 PTO Board
