8th Gr. Promotion and Activities

Promoting Class of 2015

Promotion will be on Thursday, June 18, 2015.

November 10, 2014

Dear 8th grade parents,

Our Promotion Planning Committee is working hard on the promotion dance scheduled for Friday, June 12th. This party is a CMS PTA program and a celebration for our students as they conclude their time in middle school and prepare for high school. The goal of this event is to provide a memorable and fun experience for all in attendance and we need your help to make this happen.

We are asking 8th grade families to consider a monetary contribution called a “Flat Dollar Donation” towards the cost of this event in lieu of running fundraisers throughout the school year. Below you will find suggested amounts and how each impacts our fundraising efforts. Our committee is grateful for “Flat Dollar Donations” in any amount and wants to stress participation is voluntary. 

Our budget for this event is approximately $3,200 and will fund the following:

  • Building supplies
  • Decorations
  • DJ
  • Entertainment
  • Food
  • Invitations
  • Photo booth
  • Printing
  • Prizes

We have 222 promoting students and if 70%, or 155, of these families donate the amounts listed below we will either raise the total needed or reduce the amount of fundraising necessary for this event. Any money raised which exceeds the budget will be “gifted” back to the school and students decide through voting, which CMS project to fund. Previous class gifts have included contributions towards murals in the gym and MPR and the marque at the front of the school.

Make your Flat Dollar Donation TODAY!

Please make your donation by January 16, 2015.
