Wishing Everyone A Wonderful Thanksgiving Break...

Big picture

CMS Families...

As we head into the Thanksgiving break, we would like to take this time to thank everyone for helping our student body work to get back into "school shape." No matter what you like to be part of there is always a need to stretch, warm up and prepare for the endeavor. This is no different with school. After 18 months of being out of structured school shape, we are now focusing on getting back to an optimum level. We are getting there, but we still have some stretching and warming up to do. However please know, we are thankful for your partnership and support. I'm a firm believer that it takes a village.

Wishing everyone a great week.

Yours in education,

Dean W. Packard - Principal

Mr. Rogalski - Assistant Principal
