CPS Weekly Update

Week of November 29th

December is Upon Us!

CPS families,

We hope that all of our families had a wonderful Thanksgiving break and were able to spend some time with one another. It is hard to believe that the end of the year is approaching and 2022 is near. This month is filled with important dates and happenings, please read through this newsletter carefully as it has a lot of information. Students and staff have been working hard in our CPS classrooms whether it has been gearing up for the upcoming chorus concert, building tiny home models, rehearsing for Willy Wonka, conducting gallery walks of student work or participating in science dissections.

We know that the holiday season can be exciting, stressful and overwhelming for many. We understand that and work hard to keep consistent expectations at school, while offering supports for those who may need a little extra this time of year. Please reach out to our administration, counselors or teachers if we can help your family in any way get through these next few weeks.

- Adriene Lombard, CPS Assistant Principal
