Snack Boxes are currently available for all eighth graders to pick up and sell. Each box contains 81 items that are sold for $1.00 each. Students will receive $25.00 for every box they sell. Contact Mrs. Kimberly Tufts for more information.
As part of our school-wide fundraiser through Mountain Empire Promotions, CMS students in all grades will be selling items featured in three separate catalogs. You can click on the links below to view each catalog:
