CMS in Focus

These CMS students were beautifully captured by local photographer Lisa Jones (of Lisa Jones Photography) in an image that depicts just a few of the possibilities that exist for our students as they grow and develop their interests and skills. Lisa captioned the picture Find Your Passion. What a great challenge for all of our students.


Thank you Lisa Jones for this beautiful photograph.

The Economics of Second Grade

Understanding the concepts of economics is tough. These EES second graders are getting a handle on what it all really means. Students formed companies and produced a product to sell. Students used ledgers, created product plans, practiced measurement and money skills while building and launching their business!
