Principal's Weekly Message

From The Principal's Desk...

Dear CMS Families:


As we swing into the last week of Term #2, please continue to have conversations with your child(ren) about how they are doing in school. We continue to do our best to monitor all cases; however, you, as the caregiver, have a more direct line to your child(ren). Therefore, please let us know how we can help. Whether it's academic, social or emotional, we're all here to assist at any time. Don't ever feel as though you can't ask for help. This is the first pandemic for all of us, and we need to support each other to the highest level.


As a school, we will continue to commit to a high-level of learning expectations; however, we are also cognizant of the fact we are working with kids; thus, dynamics differ from child to child and household to household. There will come a day when we look back and all of this will be in our rearview mirror, but until then, we all need to continue to connect and support each other as we move forward throughout the school year.


Please don't hesitate to reach out to me with any direct questions or concerns.


Wishing everyone a fantastic weekend and a great week ahead!


Yours in education,


Dean W. Packard, Principal
