SAVE THE DATE-- Student Socials Scheduled for 2/15

Cedar Park will host the first of two student socials of the school year on Friday, 2/15. Each grade will have a separate celebration. CPMS staff work hard to plan and organize this event. Past socials have included a DJ, food/snacks, a photo booth, and various stations throughout the building for students to choose from. 

Parent involvement is a MUST to ensure a safe, fun, and awesome event. Look for volunteer shifts soon via mVP. This popular event is a perfect way to spy on, errr.... witness your child's social circle.

Cedar Park Volunteers Staff BSD Clothes Closet

Thank you to the 10 Cedar Park volunteers who staffed the BSD Clothes Closet last week.

The BSD Clothes Closet assigns each school one Wednesday a week to provide volunteers for the sorting room and store.

Cedar Park came through to provide excellent service and customer service, as well as the man power to open, sort, and organize the boxes of donated winter coats that had recently come in.

More information about this vital BSD program can be found here. They are always in need of gently, used clothing, especially winter coats and shoes. New underwear and socks are also high in demand this school year.
