The Combs Middle School Parent-Teacher Organization (PTO) provides parents with a means to build community within the school setting. The primary goals of PTO are to create opportunities to interact about important school issues and to raise funds.
Meetings will take place the third Tuesday of each month throughout the school year in the school cafeteria, from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m. We have scheduled the next PTO meeting for Tuesday, May 14. PTO also has a Facebook page called JO Combs Middle School PTO. We will post information on the page to keep everyone updated.
This year’s officers are Shelly Hargis (president), Shannon Bernhardt (vice president), Stacey Smith (treasurer), Kim Bane (secretary), and Patricia Herd (fundraising).
Combs Middle School PTO Golf Tournament
The middle school PTO recently hosted its First Annual Cougar Golf Tournament at The Links Golf Club at Queen Creek on April 6. The event was a four-person best-shot scramble format with 48 players participating.
PTO had six sponsors for the tournament:
The tournament also had a number of organizations that donated items for the event:
We raised approximately $2,000 thanks to the golfers, sponsors, and donors.
PTO would like to express its gratitude to everyone who helped make this first annual event be successful!
PTO is participating in the Albertson's Community Partners fundraiser. To participate, each time a person shops at any Albertson’s, they will scan a card. To put this fundraiser into action, CMS received cards for the entire population of middle school students. We recently gave these cards to students to bring home. Please consider using your card next time you shop at Albertson’s to raise funds for the middle school community.
Cell Phone Fundraiser
PTO is also participating in a fundraiser through the collection of old cell phones and empty ink cartridges. If you donate a phone, please include the charger with your donation. To participate, please bring your items to the box available in the front office of the administrative building. This fundraiser will continue for the remainder of the school year.
Your child is older now, and the school seems to run well without your help, right? Teens need us more than ever. Your child’s school needs you too!
The PTO is the connection between you and the school. Attending meetings will help you understand school events, special needs of the school, and other school issues. Join us in making a difference. Volunteer when you can with our PTO volunteers, join the PTO network, or look on our volunteer e-mails for opportunities.
