The Carmel Valley Middle School (CVMS) PTSA is holding its annual Giving Paws donation drive to help restock classrooms and the front office with much-needed supplies. Teachers and staff members have made a list of specific items needed, but tax-deductible financial donations are also welcome. The staff’s wishlist includes items such as pencils, notebooks, batteries, glue sticks, staples, binders, markers, tissues, highlighters, cleaning wipes, erasers, paper, and hand sanitizer, among others.

The PTSA is dedicated to improving the education, health, safety, and well-being of all children at CVMS. Key programs sponsored or supported by the CVMS PTSA include academic enrichment, parent education, adaptive physical education, Career Day, Red Ribbon Week, Spirit Day, Reflections, the talent show, and teacher mini grants.
