CHMS PTO Annual Fundraiser Turnabout 2019-20 Update

Support your PTO!  Don’t miss the NON-EVENT of the year!  It’s sure to “turn” heads. No need to stress or buy a dress.  Just donate online!

How much should I donate? 

Think about how much you would have spent had this been an actual event (ticket price, babysitter, new outfit, manicure, blowout, Uber, buying raffle tickets at event/bidding at auction, etc.)

All the money you are now saving by not attending, could be donated instead!

All donations go directly to the school and support our students and staff through recognition, school improvements and events.  The PTO cannot function without your generous support so please consider making a donation.

Sponsor levels:

Solo: $100

Grab a Partner: $150

Napoleon Dynamite Ultimate Dance Solo: $200

Freestyle: Whatever Amount Works Best for Your Family

Community Speaker Series: The Self-Driven Child 10/22

Dr. William Stixrud and Ned Johnson: The Self-Driven Child

A few years ago, clinical neuropsychologist William Stixrud, Ph.D. and teen motivational coach Ned Johnson started noticing the same problem from different angles: Even high-performing kids were coming to them acutely stressed and lacking motivation. They co-authored a book, The Self-Driven Child, combining cutting-edge brain science, the latest discoveries in behavioral therapy, and case studies drawn from thousands of kids and teens. In this presentation, they will discuss today’s common stressors and describe compassionate, concrete solutions to help children of all ages move from feelings of powerlessness to pur- pose, ready to take on new challenges on the real road to success.

The program is free and open to all, but space is limited. If you are interested in attending, please register in advance by using the registration links below:
