What is Renaissance

Renaissance is a national program that has been around for years.  The concept is one that embraces hard work, significant academic achievement and improvement, good citizenship and volunteerism.  The criterion for Renaissance is three-fold:  a 3.0 or better G.P.A., work habits and citizenship of Satisfactory or Outstanding from all teachers, and good attendance.   We are very proud to state that consistently more than half of CMS students meet these criteria. 

We reward these students with prizes and activities throughout the school year.  However, because of state budget cuts, we need to raise a large proportion of this money through fundraisers. One of the committee’s greatest desires is to get local businesses and community members more involved. While some progress has been made in gaining the support of our local businesses, we have great plans ahead and there is still more to be done. . If you would like to support our efforts please contact Tricia Swift Buggle.

Past Renaissance Efforts

Japanese Earthquake/Tsunami Fundraiser - CMS Students turned in spare change and we raise $354.40 for the victims in Japan.  Thanks for you support. 

Spc. Ronnie J. Pallares Fund -  Ronnie was a former CMS and ALHS student who was killed while serving in Afghanistan.  Our students were touched and raised over $400.00 to give to Ronnie's family.  We thank all of our soldiers and their families for their daily sacrifices. 

St. Jude's Fundraiser - CMS  partnered with Chili's restaurant to raise money and awareness for St. Jude's hospital.  We had the honor of having one of St. Jude's local patients, Elizabeth, and her mother visit CMS and talk with our students about what it is St. Jude's has done for her and her family.

Soles 4 Souls - Last year CMS partnered with Kraft Foods to donate over 1,000 pairs of shoes to Haiti in response to the earthquake that ravaged the small Caribbean island. Thanks to all who participated.
