PTA Fundraiser
The CMS PTA does great things for the students and teachers at Chowan Middle School! This year with your help we have funded many projects at our middle school. We helped complete the outside classroom gazebo along with the LOWES grant we received. This included having custom tables built. We provided student/teacher planners in the fall and will provide free snow cones for students and staff at the upcoming EOG celebration. We will also provide breakfast for 4 days of EOG/NCFE testing for all students, staff, and proctors. Our PTA bought 2 widescreen televisions for our cafeteria to use for student announcements and meetings, along with a new volleyball net. We will also be providing money to the library for technology needs, quiz bowl response systems, name plates to go outside staff doors, and repairing the volleyball playing area. We have also funded 2 breakfasts, one for our bus drivers and one for staff for teacher appreciation week. We provided holiday gifts for staff, prizes/cake for teacher appreciation week, PTA drawings, classrooms sets of pencils, and CMS apparel for students to wear if they need a change of clothes. 
      We would like to ask you to support us again as we plan for the upcoming 2015-2016 school year.  We will be hosting an end of the year Golden Corral steak dinner fundraiser on one of our teacher workdays, Wednesday, June 17th. These funds will be used to buy new floor mats for our buildings, to purchase outside picnic tables for students, and give each teacher a fall donation to purchase classroom supplies for our students. 
     Tickets cost $9 for a delicious steak plate that includes a baked potato, green beans, and a roll. We will be serving plates at lunch from 11:00 a.m. -2:00 p.m. and again for dinner from4:00 p.m. -6:00 p.m. Please support us and purchase plates for your family and friends. Orders can be picked up on the 17th by entering the bus parking lot and pulling up to the cafeteria doors. If you have a large order for a business please leave a message with the office. Lunch tickets and dinner tickets will be different colors.  All orders/money are due June 8th.
