Would you like to make your child’s birthday extra special AND help our school at the same time?
We even celebrate summer birthdays this way!
For a $15 donation to CMSW PTO, we will place a birthday message to your child on the marquee in front of the school during his/her birthday week. This donation will go directly to benefit CMSW students through PTO's fundraising efforts. As with all donations to CMSW PTO, this donation is fully tax deductible.
Birthday messages will read "Happy Birthday student's name." The messages will be changed on Fridays. Some weeks, when school is not in session, will be double weeks.
CMS West Library is in need of library volunteers during the lunch hours.

The cost to participate in iLead is $50, which helps defray district expenses such as t-shirts, training materials, food, etc. This year, we are excited to introduce iLead II, a three-week training program for graduates of iLead.

CISD Seeks Input in Naming 11th Elementary
Coppell ISD is seeking input from its community in naming the district’s 11th elementary school. The school is set to open for the 2019-20 school year and is located on the corner of Ranchview and Sante Fe Trail in Irving, Texas (Valley Ranch).
Please visit goo.gl/cevG1m and fill out the questionnaire by Friday, Sept. 14. Historically, CISD secondary schools (6th – 12th grades) are named after geographic areas or specific programs (such as New Tech High @ Coppell). Four of the district’s 10 current elementary schools are named after people (Pinkerton, Wilson, Austin and Lee.) CISD Board Policy CW Local states, “In the naming or renaming of a District facility after a District employee or elected official, there shall be a one-year waiting period from the time of resignation or retirement before the Board may consider such a request. Please click here for the complete policy. Results from the questionnaire will be shared with the CISD Board of Trustees during its regular Board Meeting on Monday, Sept. 24.
