NOVEMBER INFORMATION

Principal Update

HAPPY NOVEMBER!


Halloween is over, and we are officially in our busy holiday season! There are three weeks left in until we are out for thanksgiving break. Time will fly by between now and our winter break, and we will have a lot of events, projects, grades, assignments, etc., packed in.


We had a great Literacy/Social Studies Night last month where students showcased their amazing talents and hard work. We look forward to families coming back to celebrate these successes with us again!


The Home Access Center (HAC) can be accessed at any time to view your student's grades. The link for this can be accessed on the school's website. Student passwords are the same as last year, but you are welcome to call the CMS office to receive information about viewing grades!


-Dr. McPhate


*Please note that dates/times may change throughout the month.

Health Screenings

We want to keep our schools open and students in school. Please monitor your students' health/wellness at home before sending them to school every day. If your child has one or more of the following symptoms, please do not send them to school until they are resolved:


  • 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit or higher temperature when taken by mouth
  • Sore throat
  • Uncontrolled cough that causes difficulty breathing (for students with chronic allergic/asthmatic cough, a change in their cough from baseline)
  • Diarrhea, vomiting, or abdominal pain
  • New onset of severe headache, especially with a fever

Guest Speakers

We plan to have guest speakers again this year! We try to explore a variety of careers and fields. If you know someone that would be great to talk to our students, please let us know!


Previous and upcoming guest speakers:


  • AR Game and Fish
  • Alvin Medlin (Air Force)
  • Zach Hall (Storm chaser)
  • Roo Doo Wildlife Park
  • Zachary Andrews (Office of the Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge)
  • Marc McCune (Judge)

Thanksgiving Food Drive

CMS is sponsoring a canned food/non-perishable food drive to benefit the Senior Center in Cedarville. The grade that brings in the most will receive extra recess! There will be boxes set up in the main hallway by the office.
