CMSS Word of the Week- PRIDE
This week's Word of the Week is....RESPECT.
Respect is a noun from the Latin word respectus, meaning "regard, act of looking back, consider in high regard." It also means a "feeling of esteem, courteous or considerate treatment."
The first thing to realize is that the word “respect” is about more than behavior. Respect is the feeling of admiration toward someone because of who they are or what they have accomplished. Respect is not the same as good manners, although displaying good manners can be a sign of respect. Rather, respect is an inner feeling about a person that is displayed through kind words and actions on a regular basis. (from www.aatozz.com)

Car Rider Procedures
Avoid dropping off/picking up your student in the parking lots. This creates traffic that could result in an injury to our students and staff. Parking lots are reserved for those parking and entering the building.
Morning Drop Off
- Drop off is 1 lane. Use the lane closest to the building.
- Please pull as far forward as possible when dropping off your student. This allows more students to exit the cars and speeds up the drop off line.
- Students will enter the building through the front doors.
Afternoon Pick Up
- Pick up is 2 lanes after entering the CMSS driveway. Cars must use the "Merge" lane to create 1 lane of traffic heading toward Kerr Station Road. Panther Trail is a city street and must remain open for through traffic.
- Present your placard to the caller as you approach the beginning of the car line.
- Students will listen for their name and go to the number called with their name.
- Cars will pull up to the number called. (#1 is near the 6th grade hall/closest to the Kerr Station exit/#10 is near the 5th grade hall/closest to the caller).
- Students will wait until the vehicle comes to a complete stop to load their car.
