CMS reached out to multiple schools on the East Coast following the devastation of Super Storm Sandy and were able to make contact with one middle school principal in the town of Oceanport, New Jersey. The Oceanport District has approximately 600 students in grades K-8.
His building is still standing but half of his students are in the town of Sea Bright, a town that has to be completely demolished because no building is safe.
One of the many needs they have right now is school supplies so they may re-open school.
CMS is sponsoring a Book bag drive. It would be wonderful if we could put together enough book bags for every student in the Oceanport District.
Please contact CMS Assistant Principal Kay Hewitt if you are willing to help out either individually or as a group. CMS’s goal is a backpack for every student in Oceanport. Backpacks will be collected through December.
