For Immediate Attention - Verification of Newsletter/Directory - REQUIRED for Schedule Pickup
Published: Mon, Aug 15, 2016, 05:05PM CDT

CMSE PTO sends out a newsletter every week with information of all things related to school. Most of the time this is your only source of information about events in school.

We need you to verify that your address is accurate. We need you to complete this step before your schedule pick up this week. Only families who have verified their information by this process can proceed to schedule pickup. In order to help make the process smooth we request you to take care of this step. This needs your attention tonight.

Please verify that the information CMSE PTO has for your family is correct by clicking your name in the yellow box below. (If the yellow box below says “Thanks, you’re done!” then you do not need to verify again. If it says “Input needed” you’ll need to verify.)% You will be directed to a page that lists your family information and asked to verify its accuracy. If it is not accurate, you will be asked to correct the information. You will also be able to indicate if you prefer NOT to be listed in the student directory.

If you did not receive this article via an emailed newsletter, contact Anu Mudigonda for assistance.

Updating the CISD Parent Portal is NOT the same thing as verifying your information with CMSE PTO. CISD cannot share your personal information with PTO.

PARENT/ATHLETE INFORMATIONAL MEETING
Published: Mon, Aug 8, 2016, 03:12PM CDT

My name is Steven Seeley and I am the athletic coordinator at CMS East.
I wanted to put a couple of things on the radar for you.

Boys Parent/Athlete Meeting
Our meeting will be August 13th from 10am – 12pm. During that time, we will be discussing expectations, practice schedules, introducing coaches and fielding any questions you all might have. We can also accept physicals to have on file during that time.

Issuing Football Equipment/Lockers

If your son is playing football this year, please expect to be at school as early as 10am to get him his equipment and locker. Football players are always welcome to have their own personal equipment approved for use – I simply ask that you show up at the issue time so one of the coaches can ensure it fits properly. If your student-athlete has a game that morning, we can arrange to get him his equipment another time. However, it is my hope we can take care of all the equipment on that one day. More details to come on the process.

FREE Shock Doctor Mouthguards

Dr. Bailey is graciously donating and fitting these $15 mouthguard for our East athletes. Fittings will begin at 1:00pm at his office. Please arrive as close to 1:00 as possible as Dr. Bailey is also donating his time and his staff’s time as well.

Girls Parent/Athlete Meeting

Our Meeting will be August 13h from 1pm – 3pm

Physicals
Athletes will not be able to participate in any practice until all the paperwork and physicals are complete and turned in. Our process is all online and can be found at https://coppellisd.rankonesport.com. On the site, there is an [Instructions] tab to explain how it all works. ATHLETES MUST HAVE ALL FORMS COMPLETED ONLINE AND PHYSICAL FORM TURNED IN BEFORE THEY CAN PRACTICE.
