Volunteer coordinator needed for 2018-19

This June, several dedicated volunteer leaders will be moving on from CPMS and the spring is a crucial time for incoming leads to shadow their outgoing counterparts.

A critical role available next year is CPMS’s Volunteer Coordinator.  The Volunteer Coordinator oversees CPMS’s volunteer needs, but is not responsible to plan and organize every volunteer activity.    

Here’s a quick education on what that role entails:

  • Serves a one year term

  • Can be shared between one to two parents

  • Promotes & encourages volunteer activities, including managing the district volunteer software (training provided)

  • Attends one BSD Parent Group Leadership training

  • Organizes the fall’s Volunteer Orientation

  • Acts as a liaison between the PTC and CPMS regarding volunteer needs

  • Create and maintain volunteer badges as needed                  

 

Several individual committees are also seeking leadership in 2018-19, including:

  • Art Lit

  • Staff Appreciation

  • PACK Store

  • Student Socials Liaison

  • Clothes Closet Coordinator

  • Back to School Picnic

  • Wolf Day Liaison

  • Directory

  • Family Fun Day

  • 8th Grade End of Year Celebration

More info regarding these volunteer committees can be found here.

The success and engagement of our Cedar Park community is powered by YOU-- the parents and community members willing to contribute their time and energy to the health of this organization.  

If you are interested or would like to learn more regarding the Volunteer Coordinator, or any of these lead positions, please contact Angela Redmon (angelaredmon@gmail.com).

Wipe Out the Flu RESCHEDULED for 2/21

VOLUNTEERS & DONATIONS NEEDED!

Like many schools, CPMS has been hit hard by the flu. While our custodial staff is top notch, they are not prepared to deal with a flu outbreak. 

We're having a drive to collect Clorox Wipes and engaging volunteers to come into every classroom on Wednesday the 21st at 2:30pm (when students are gone) to "WIPE DOWN" classroom desks and cafeteria tables. Let's WIPE OUT THE FLU!

Since students will be off campus we have fewer barriers and restrictions meaning, bring some friends. We've got around 50 classrooms plus the cafeteria and library so we'll need as many hands as possible.

Clorox (or generic brand) wipes can be dropped off in the office.
