The Century PTO supports students and staff through fundraising and volunteering. Through our efforts, we strive to (1) build a culture of community, contribution and pride in our school (2) provide funding for enrichment opportunities and (3) make an impactful, positive difference for our students and staff. All Century Middle School parents and staff are members. PTO meetings are scheduled on the last Thursday of each month (with some exceptions). Contact the PTO at:

The Century PTO needs parents to fill board positions for next year. That means Dads too! The PTO year runs from July to June. Terms are two-years. If your child ages out of Century mid-term, we simply open the position for another parent.

Interested in joining the PTO? There will be two positions available for the 2020/2021 school year:

  • Communications Chair
  • PTO Volunteer Coordinator

Each position is a two year commitment and appointments begin July 1. All PTO meetings are open to CMS parents, so please feel to drop to learn about how the PTO supports students and staff.

CMS Community Challenge

The CMS Community Challenge is an annual, direct-donation fundraiser where 100% of the funds raised by our students stay at CMS. This program harnesses the power of teamwork to achieve a collective goal. Our students celebrate their fundraising efforts at the Challenge Event, where student teams compete against each other to complete a variety of challenges.  For more information, or to get involved with the 2020 CMS Community Challenge, send us an email at

Timing for the 2020 Challenge Event will be determined once the district knows more about the 2020-21 school year.
