CMS Families,


As we complete week #2, I am happy to report that our students and staff have settled in very nicely. Fall sports will begin next week - be watching emails for additional information. Also, we are in the beginning stages of planning our afterschool clubs, too. That information will coming out soon.


This past week, I was able to hold four grade level assemblies. During this time, my goal was to help calibrate school expectations, outline all supports and help to further student understanding of their WHY. School is a place where students need to feel connected, supported and be allowed to be themselves. As I said before, I can't wait to see the things we accomplish together.


As always, please ask your children about their day. Also, stay connected with the teachers and don't ever hesitate to reach out to any of us.


Well, that's all for now. Next week will be very exciting! Enjoy the weekend and please reach out with any questions or concerns.


Yours in education,,


Dean W. Packard - Principal
