Dear West Families,
My name is Ritu Sethi and I will be serving all of you as the PTO president for the 2020 - 2021 school year. Whether you are a returning family or new to our community, please let me extend a warm welcome on behalf of the CMS West PTO.
As we are all aware this year will look very different from year’s past. That said, it is the mission of the PTO to support the educational and recreational needs of our students as well as promote communication between the administration, staff, parents and the community. We are very lucky to have a strong PTO Executive Board, Committee Leadership Team and volunteers in place ready to meet. We are very appreciative of our student and parent volunteers who have helped us throughout the summer.
We don’t have any membership charge this year. As a parent with a child at CMS West, you are automatically a member of the PTO. We would love for you to show your support by participating in the events and activities planned throughout the year. We are diligently working on establishing the calendar of events, and as soon as we have some concrete information, it will be posted to the website, Facebook and sent to you via email. This year in particular, the calendar will be fluid; so please make sure to check it often. In addition to events, we invite you to attend all or as many PTO meetings as you can. Typically, meetings are held once a month on Thursday evenings (usually 3rd week) from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m. Specific dates will be communicated on the website. It is most likely that many of our traditional events will look and feel different this time around; nonetheless, your time and involvement is essential to a strong and vibrant community. I wish you all a fulfilling and productive year ahead. Please contact me anytime about PTO events, activities or questions you may have.
President, CMSW PTO
