Spring Gala

Save the date and spread the word about our Virtual Spring Gala on Saturday, April 24th from 3-5pm
This year, we are highlighting our Kindergarten Scholarship and raising funds to offset the substantial cost each year to CHMS. We love supporting our Kindergarten families, and hope the community will join us in supporting this important year of learning and leadership for all!
The Gala planning committee is putting together an awesome silent auction for the event, and is asking for help with donations for auction gift baskets and for stand-alone items. If you have an item to donate for the silent auction, you can fill out this Google Form to let us know what you would like to give to us.
If you would like to assist with a gift basket, that’s great!  Helping to create these baskets might be a great way for family and friends to support from afar.  Please see the graphics below for more information on what is needed for the baskets.
Any donations can be delivered to the school, and more info is inside the letter below. Contact CHMS Board member September Luitjens with any questions
