CMS Socials

The Carpenter PTA sponsors after-school socials for all students in the Fall and Spring and an 8th Grade-only event in the spring as a celebration of graduation. These socials are our largest events and a highlight of the school year with game trucks, live DJ, inflatables, food, and more!

Each year, Carpenter PTA awards a scholarship to a graduating Senior who attended Carpenter and had family or were themselves members of PTA.


Field Day

CMS has field day each year in the Spring. The PTA supports these events and helps by volunteering with the teachers and providing supplies as needed.




Field Trips

Each year the PTA helps support the grade levels and groups at CMS by helping them take field trips.
