Introducing Eagle Eats!

The CHMS PTO and a variety of community partners are joining forces to fundraise! Each month, the PTO will highlight a community partner who is offering a portion of their proceeds back to our school. All you have to do is shop on those days and mention the CHMS PTO! We have already partnered with Corner Bakery and Woodgrain Pizza.  Look for more great opportunities in the new year!

If you would like to help us with this fundraising effort, please contact  Time commitment is minimal, but return is great!
