Colt Corner

Celebrating 40 Years of Excellence

May 12, 2017

Dear Colt Parents,

Every week I include pictures in the newsletter to give you a peak inside the great things happening at CMS. I know as a parent myself, my kids are slow to give me information about their day even with my constant prodding at the dinner table. For me, I love being able to get visuals and blurbs about the amazing things happening at our great GCISD schools. I hope you enjoy them weekly as I do sending and receiving them. This week we had state testing, which was a success on our campus, but as you will notice in the pictures, we are so much more then testing at CMS. This week you will see pictures of students engaged in great lessons, competing in extra curricular activities, field trips and so much more. Pictures do say 1000 words, and our Twitter account @cmscolts and website are just another great way to get a glimpse into the great things happening daily at CMS. I hope you enjoy your weekend as we enter into our last full five day school week for the 16-17 school year!
