Partnering for over 20 years and still going strong now more than ever! The CMS SchoolMates program has helped participating schools the opportunity to work together to create meaningful school-to-school relationships. Thomasboro Academy Tigers and Elizabeth Lane Hawks demonstrate a community partnership that provides the opportunity to assist with all students having access to invaluable resources for success.

Here are some of the Volunteer Highlights that take place throughout the year:

     Fall: Household/School Supply drive, Book Fair, New Coat Drive

     Winter: College Tour, Reading Activity, Holiday Gift Drive

     Spring: Household/School Supply drive, Career and College Fair

Here’s how you can help:

  • Participate in our school/household supply drives. Watch the Mini News for announcements regarding specific collection dates and items needed. Due to Covid-19, items will be requested and delivered a bit differently this school year. Online “Wish Lists” will be created with Walmart and Amazon.
  • Link your Harris Teeter VIC card to Thomasboro. Link your VIC card to #4362. This must be registered every year.
  • Sign up to join the Thomasboro Committee and receive monthly communications regarding volunteer activities.

Thank you to all who have volunteered to help our partnership succeed!
