Volunteers/nominations needed for 2014/2015 PTO Executive Board:  The PTO is looking for volunteers interested in participating on the Executive Board for the 2014/2015 School Year.  The general duties of each officer are listed on the attachment.  Interested individuals should be consensus minded and flexible with the time
that they are willing to dedicate to the School/PTO.  If you are interested in discussing a position, please call or email Susan Charlier or Iria Irlanda Jennings (Co-Presidents for the 2014/2015 School Year).  Their emails can be found under the Officer tab of the website or you can call Susan (630)655-6646 or Iria (708)846-8831.  All interested parties will be evaluated by a Nominating Committee and a final slate will be proposed at the April 16, 2014 PTO meeting.  Thank you for your interest!

CHMS Phone System Update
The District updated all phone systems last month, so please note that CHMS has a new phone number (630) 861-4800 and all teacher extensions have changed.  A magnet was sent home with your student last month, but since we know many are probably in lockers, please make a note of it.  See the PDF file on the website for printable versions of the new extensions or check the right margin at   

O’Brien School Update
O’Brien School for the Maasai in Tanzania (Founded by local resident Kellie O’Brien) sends HUGE thanks to the CHMS families for their oatmeal donations last fall.  The shipping container left Hinsdale last November and arrived at the school on February 16th.  CHMS, along with all of the other D181 schools, collected nearly 400 boxes of oatmeal that will provide breakfast to their students for nearly four months.  Thank you for your generosity!!!
