Hi CMJH Family!

The holidays are upon us already! Special thanks to everybody who contributed to the Halloween and Winter Dance Snacks and to the Teacher Appreciation Luncheon! It amazes me how quickly the slots fill up to help here at Cheyenne Mountain Junior High. We appreciate all the ways you help - through One and Done, snacks, food, your time, and beyond!
If you want to know how you can help or continue to help, check out the PTO website(link available from, and sign up for our e-blasts. Also, don’t forget to get those Box Tops to the school; they really add up!
Happy holiday season!

Happy October CMJH Family!

Thanks to everyone for your One and Done donations! We are still tallying up the donations but from what I saw, we will have significant money to add great value to our students and teachers this year. We are still collecting for One and Done – you can send your donation to the office with your child. Just a reminder, we are officially a 501C3, so you may now write off donations to CMJH.

Also, a big thanks to everyone who has volunteered your time this year. At the PTO, we know your time is precious. So, whether chaperoning a dance, taking a moment to buy a donation food item, or coming to a PTO meeting, we appreciate you and your time so very much!

Carley Bogus
PTO President

Like with everything else at the Junior High, the PTO communicates electronically mainly through our PTO eBlasts. Here’s how to sign up for important information:

One and Done

Instead of doing fundraising all year, PTO collects funds just once and uses those dollars in the year we collect them. Your donations go directly back to CMJH and is the cornerstone for all PTO does. Please make sure to send in your “One and Done” contribution to the office.

Hi CMJH Family, 
I cannot believe it, but July is coming to a close and August is back and with it another great school year at CMJH! I wanted to take a quick moment to update you on a couple important dates, reminders and news up and coming from PTO this year. 
For our 7th grade parents, I am Carley Bogus, the president of the PTO. I have an absolutely amazing oncoming/returning board and am excited for a great 18/19 school year. Thank you to them and to all parent and teacher members. CMJH is an amazing community and your generosity and engagement never ceases to amaze me. 
At CMJH, the PTO runs similar to those at our elementary schools. We put together and sell spirit wear, help with dances and other school events, show teacher appreciation, as well as help raise money for meaningful financial contributions to the school. These include new water fountains, gym equipment and library furniture. You will receive more information in the upcoming weeks, but we do all this with one single fundraising at the beginning of the year, our One and Done campaign. Be on the look out for information about One and Done.
Alright, now for the fun stuff!
We have several upcoming important dates and some signups for a few volunteer needs: 
August 13th - 10:30-12:30(ish): Folder Stuffing 
We need up to 15+ folder stuffers to stuff the Student Folders. Kids with stuffing skills are welcome! The more people we can get, the faster we will be done. 
Sign Up:

August 16th – 7:45AM-12:00PM: 7th Grade Hearing Screening Helpers 
We need 6 volunteers to help with heating screen on 7th Grader Orientation Day. Volunteers should plan to work the whole morning shift. Snacks and training provided! 
Sign Up:

August 28th – 1:30 PM: PTO Meeting 
We meet one monthly (twice annually in the evening) in the Library at CMJH. We will have our first PTO meeting on the 28th. Meetings are fast and informative. I look forward to meeting you there! 

August 28th – 6:00-6:30: Back to School Night Social 
We will be selling spirit wear and directories, and will have laptops available for signups at Back to School Night. 

We are currently collecting updates for the Student Directory. Please be on the lookout for signups from the official D12 messenger. Also, if you are a local business and want to get an ad in the CMJH directory reaching 300+ CMJH families, please email

Thanks everyone, be on the lookout for volunteer sign ups! Hope you are enjoying the last bit of summer! 
Carley Bogus, PTO President
