CMS Weekly Update 3-18-2018



Hello CMS Families!


       As we move into the final quarter of the school year we want to make sure everyone is aware of our upcoming Saturday school sessions.  These sessions are a great opportunity for students who need extra time and support in order to improve their grades.  We will be offering at least two more (possibly three) Saturday school sessions between now and the end of the school year.  The first of these sessions will take place on April 7th (8-10:30am).  I am still requesting that 8th grade parents send photos of their student to  In order to ensure that all students have the opportunity to be represented, I am asking that you limit your submissions to 5 photos per student.  The deadline to submit your photos will be May the 15th.
