CMS HAPPY PARADES DURING THE MONTH OF MAY!

We’ve decided to create “CMS Happy Parades” during the month of May for any of our CMS students who have a birthday, a celebration of some sort, or need a pick me up. Simply fill out the CMS Happy Parades Form and we will get in touch with you to organize it. We are also planning a day in the near future for our faculty and staff to be at CMS to allow students to drive through our car line so we can see each other- a Happy Parade in reverse if you will! Thank you for being amazing, for taking care of yourselves, and for taking care of each other. Together, we will get through this difficult time.


Click the link below to watch our first CMS HAPPY PARADE celebrating our awesome student, Timmy Bott! Happy Birthday, Timmy!

ATTENTION PARENTS: Be on the l👀kout for this important email on Tuesday, May 5. Follow the steps in the email to verify your child's core course information by Tuesday, May 12.

important information for cms parents and students ~ parent permission needed as soon as possible

CMS Parents,


Thank you to those of you who have already submitted the Google Meet permission form for your child.


In order to allow teachers and students to communicate in a live format, the D5 Technology and Instructional Technology Departments have been working diligently to provide a platform that is safe for both students and teachers. As a Google for Education District, teachers may choose to use Google Meet as we move forward with Distance Learning. All sessions will be recorded and made available for students who are not able to attend. It is recommended that a parent be in the home while these sessions are taking place; however, we understand that may not always be possible.We are glad to be able to provide this platform so that our teachers can be more interactive with students.


In order for your child to participate in these live sessions, we must have parent/guardian permission. Please click HERE to complete the permission form.


If we do not hear back from you, your child will not be able to participate, so please complete and submit this form as soon as possible.


Thank you for all you are doing during this time of learning for us all!
