Thank you to all who have responded to our plea for donations. We are approaching our Booster Drive goal but are still short of where we need to be on Booster donations for the year. Last year's Booster Drive was much closer to reaching its goal by this point in the year.

Please consider giving at your earliest convenience or consider donating to the CFPMS PTO Booster Drive  as part of your year end giving plans. Donations are tax deductible! All money raised goes back to our students, facilities and staff.  Thank you for your support! See any CFPMS PTO Board member if you have any questions about our Booster Drive, the PTO goals etc. Please use the following link to access the Booster Drive form.

The CFPMS PTOThank you very much for your contribution and support.

Patton Middle School Parent Visitation Day -- "A Day in the Life of a Middle Schooler" -- is this Wednesday, October 22, 2014! You are invited to come and spend the day visiting your child's classes. Visitation times are from 7:35 AM until 1:42 PM. There is a parent lunch package that we offer for $5.00 and tickets are sold in the morning during registration. Also, if you are interested in purchasing any new books, visit the Book Fair in the Library!  If you do not have time to visit the Book Fair, have your child fill out a "Wish List" during their LA visit and then shop the Book Fair online.
