Meetings

Meeting dates for the 2024/2025 School Year


To show support for the school, parent/guardian attendance at either Parent-Teacher Association (PTA) or School Advisory Committee (SAC) meetings are required.   You must attend either a PTA or a SAC meeting each month.  

**If a parent would like to register as a volunteer and sign up for a duty station twice a month (30 minutes each time) that can also be used in lieu of a PTA meeting for that month. Volunteer shifts must be completed in the month the parent is looking for meeting credit to count. Arrangements must be made prior to the day of volunteering through the volunteer coordinator. Volunteers must sign in and sign out at the front office each time they participate in a duty station. PTA committee work and fieldtrips are other possibilities to earn credit for a month.

 Procedure for unattended meetings is: After one (1) missed meeting, a reminder/intervention level 1 letter will be mailed to the family. After two (2) missed meetings, the family will be placed on probation/intervention level 2. A third (3) missed meeting during one school year results in referral to the Intervention and Appeals Committee/intervention level 3. If a family is reassigned for nonattendance of parent meetings, they may not reapply to any fundamental middle school. 

Each attendee may represent only one family.  

If circumstances arise which make it impossible for a parent to attend a required meeting, a representative (18 years or older, not representing another CFMS family) may be sent.  If a parent needs to exercise this option, he/she must call the office of the principal by the morning of the meeting day.  It is the parent's responsibility to make the representative aware of all obligations.  

Attendees are expected to arrive on time for meetings. PTA/SAC attendance credit will not be given for anyone arriving 15 or more minutes late. Cards will not be given out after 6:15 PM. You will NOT receive credit for attending if you arrive after 6:15 PM. You must stay until the meeting is adjourned to receive credit for attendance--no exceptions. 

Attendees must stay until the meeting is adjourned to receive credit for attendance.  No exceptions. This is a fundamental policy.  

Meetings are intended for adults only.  Any children in attendance must sit with their parent.

Parents only need to attend 1 meeting either in August or September to receive credit for both months since they are a combined month. (This includes BTSN as an option.) It is the parent’s/guardian’s responsibility to sign the card each month when they attend the meeting.

All meetings are at 6pm unless otherwise noted
