November Volunteer of the Month
We are happy to announce that Ms. Kristina Toliver has be chosen for November Volunteer of the Month. She has dedicated her mornings in helping our office staff provide tardy slips to our late comers. This kind of help may seem small, but it is extremely important because it limits the amount of instructional time our scholars lose in the morning for being late. She also has provided us with feedback on different concerns that can make the CMIT experience better. We really appreciate Ms. Toliver for her kindness and dedication in helping CMIT Elementary. Way to go, Ms. Toliver!

She will receive a certificate and will be highlighted on our school bulletin board.
