Pledge drive for Cottonwood Middle School

The Parent Teacher Student Organization (PTSO) for Cottonwood Middle School is holding a pledge drive to raise money to buy a new sound system for the school's gymnasium.

In an announcement sent to CMS families, PTSO co-presidents Stephanie Bloniarz and Lynette Prouty stated that the PTSO will no longer send kids home with items to sell such as gift-wrap, chocolates or gifts. They believe parents and families have little time for sales and delivery of fundraising items.

Instead, the PTSO will limit fundraising to special events or pledge drives.

The pledge drive is raising money to replace the school's old and worn out sound system in the gymnasium. CMS holds many school and public events, and the current sound system simply isn't working well.

A new system is estimated to cost $8,000.

Checks should be made payable to CMS PTSO and mailed to Cottonwood Middle School, 1 N. Willard St., Cottonwood.

For information call (928) 634-2231.
