Principal's Message...

CMS Families...

As we head into the month of March so much is happening. As many of you know I'm a basketball junkie and love March Madness. That will be a fun time for all of us, and I will throw out a Bracket Challenge to all of the students as well.

As for this week ahead, we have conferences scheduled for Tuesday, March 8th. All Team Leaders have already sent out sign up links. I am including a school-wide visual of all teachers and their respective links below. Please take some time to meet your child's teachers. If for some reason you can't get a link, please feel free to email teachers directly to set up a future time. I have included a staff directory link below.

Please feel free to reach out to me direclty if I can be of any assistance.

Wishing everyone a great week.

Yours in education,

Dean W. Packard - Principal

Mr. Rogalski - Assistant Principal
