Volunteers Needed for 8th Grade Trip to OSU

Cedar Park's 8th graders will be headed to Corvallis this June for a day-long college experience field trip.  This opportunity is made possible by the generous 5K donations of the Cedar Park community. For many of our CPMS students, this will be their first experience on a college campus.

In order to accommodate the large number of students, two separate field trips are scheduled for Monday, 6/4 and Wed, 4/6. Each day will need a minimum of 15 chaperones each. 

***This field trip will not happen without the minimum number of chaperones.  

Volunteers will need to be at the school by 7:30 a.m. and will be back by the end of the school day. You do not need to be the parent of an 8th grader to volunteer. ALL Volunteers are welcome!

It's preferred that volunteers ride the bus with the students but you may drive as long as you are on time. Chaperones MUST stay with their assigned students at all times.

Monday, June 4 (Pearson, Hurd, Pinckney)

 SIGN UP HERE (12 more needed)

Wed, June 6 (Parks & McKay)

SIGN-UP HERE (six more needed)

Volunteers Needed for Final 8th Grade Art Lit Lesson

The eighth graders of Cedar Park are exploring a unit on the American Civil War. The CPMS Art Literacy Program is expanding on this topic by studying the Civil War photographer, Mathew Brady.  If you’ve seen a Civil War photo, it was probably done by Mathew Brady or one of his photographers.

Art Lit Volunteers will take a portrait of your student(s) in the style of Mathew Brady.  Costumes are supplied by Art Lit.  Volunteers are needed to help students choose costumes and assist students putting costumes on over their clothes.

Because Art Lit does not extend into high school, this is your middle schooler's last Art Lit lesson at BSD.

The remaining schedule for this week is:
