Message to Parents,

Fifth grade holiday lunch has been rescheduled. The NEW date is December 3rd. Lunch times will not change. Cost is $3.50, cash only, for all visitors, adults and children who do not attend CMCSI.


The 5th grade holiday celebration will be on Thursday, December 17th. We plan on having a breakfast for students and parents. We usually have electronics day the remainder of the day. We will start the breakfast around 9:00 after the students return from specials. Please plan on joining us to celebrate. Each homeroom teacher will send out a special email requesting parent volunteers and food items for the breakfast. Some teachers may choose to have one parent coordinator for the entire class. Please let your child's teacher know if you would be interested in coordinating food donations, plastic ware, etc. We will send out more details later this week.
