Remembering Those Who Fought For Our Freedoms...

Big picture

From The Principal's Desk...

As the first quarter comes to an end, we welcome new opportunities to learn and grow. On Monday, Term 2 will officially begin, and we are all very excited to start the journey off on the right foot. Grades will be available for view on Friday, November 12th. We will send out a notification once they are ready. You can access the grades by clicking this link Community Portal.


Additionally, we are still collecting non-perishable food items to donate to our local food pantry CHIP-IN. Each classroom is having a contest and we will celebrate the room with the most items. If you wish to give a monetary donation, you can make it out to: CHIP-IN and send it to Mr. Packard's attention. We will be delivering all the food and monetary items to CHIP-IN on Tuesday, November 23rd.


Finally, this upcoming Friday will hold our second Virtual Coffee & Conversation with the principals of CMS. This will take place from 9:00 - 9:30 a.m. We will text out a link to your phone at 8:45 a.m. on Friday. I will also add the link into this eNews. This is always a great way to build deeper connections with us and our school. Hope to see you there.


We are excited to have another great week at school. As always, don't hesitate to reach out with any questions or concerns. We are always here to connect with you.


Yours in education,


Dean W. Packard - Principal
