There are many reasons why CMS is such an amazing school community, and one of them is YOU!  CMS PTA aims to help create a dynamic and inclusive school community in which ALL families can feel seen, heard and supported.  We work collaboratively with CMS, WPS, and the town of Westport to enhance and enrich our children’s school experience.  We fund a variety of programs and initiatives to do this, and here are a few examples:


  • Teacher Appreciation luncheons and treats

  • Social Events for students, like Monster Mash 

  • Eighth Grade Commencement events

  • Teacher Grants to enhance student learning

  • School Spirit Initiatives, like new CMS t-shirts for our teachers and staff

  • Newcomer and Grade Level coffees

  • Social Action initiatives, like Food Drives and Thanksgiving Bread Baking

  • CMS Art Show

  • PTA Meetings and Speaker Events

  • Community Contributions: Toquet Hall, Staples Tuition Grants, Westport Permanent Art Collection (WestPAC), Cultural Arts, Westport Department of Human Services (DHS)


The PTA is an independent 501(c)3 organization that receives 100% of its funding from parent contributions and dues. This money is then used to directly benefit our students and staff. A benefit as a member of the PTA is access to the Online Directory for CMS. Please note for access to the online directory, you must join the PTA for each school that your children attend. PTA members automatically become a member of the CT PTA and the National PTA.

PTA insurance requires that all volunteers (parent representatives, committee and event volunteers) are members of the school PTA.

Without YOU, we simply cannot do the important work that we do for our schools.  Thank you for your generosity and support!

Please join the PTA!
