Message from Dr. Epperson
I can't believe we only have one more week before Thanksgiving break. The students are doing great, and I know they are looking forward to some time off.
We have a couple of events this week that students will enjoy.
StuCo is sponsoring Caps for Kids November 17, 18, 19. Students will give a dollar to wear a hat and they will receive a wristband to wear that day.
The CMS ELAR department will host a read-in day on Friday, November 20th. The students (and maybe the teachers) have asked for an extra PJ day. So, students may wear school appropriate pajamas next Friday.
Have a wonderful weekend!

The Comedy Arena is bringing their flagship show, ComedySportz, from the field to the screen where you can watch and participate from the comfort of your own home (or wherever you are getting internet reception). This comedy show will feature actors from the CMS Theatre Department! This show is arguably, the most famous short-form comedy show in the world where performers will play various improv games and scenes, with audience members inspiring their action with their suggestions. In every match, a ComedySportz referee monitors the action and administers fouls as necessary. This International comedy show-down is a high-energy hilarious experience, and appropriate for all audiences – all ages, all welcome, all the time.
The show is on Thursday, November 19th at 7pm on Zoom. Tickets are “pay what you can.” Tickets sold out for our last show, so reserve your ticket before they’re gone! Go here to reserve your ticket: www.tinyurl.com/cmsimprov2
