Cowboy Parent Courier

October 4, 2019

Can you believe we are into October? Hoping the forecast for some cooler temperatures is here to stay. We are excited to celebrate college week next week. Each day has a fun theme! Can't wait to see everyone participate. Check out of the image below for details.

There is no school on October 14th and the end of the first quarter is October 18th. October can be a hard month for students. The excitement of a new school year is waning and the reality of the hard work each day can be stressful. We will be working hard to have some fun in October and encourage students to finish strong.


Many of our orchestra and band students are making final preparations for their Fall concerts next week. Looking forward to seeing these talented musicians shine!


I also want to thank PTO volunteers for a wonderful luncheon today. We are so fortunate to have parents who take such great care of our teachers.


Finally, the advertised Book Fair dates have changed. Our Fall Book Fair will be December 9-14.


Have a wonderful weekend,

Dr. E

Benefits McKinney ISD Programs and Organizations

Lunch for Students

Due to a variety of safety concerns related to food allergies and campus safety and security, McKinney ISD does not allow students to utilize food delivery services at school. This includes services such as Uber Eats, Doordash and direct restaurant delivery. However, parents/guardians will still be permitted to drop food off for their children.

This rule does not apply to deliveries organized by McKinney ISD faculty or a teacher serving as a sponsor of a student organization. We appreciate your cooperation in our efforts to create a safe and secure environment for students.

Parents may only deliver food for your own child. We can't accept group deliveries.

Want to Volunteer?

If you would like to volunteer at CMS, please complete the Volunteer Background Check. If you have been approved in the past, you have until September to update your application for the new school year. You must complete a new form each year. Please note that if you do not complete the proper paperwork, you cannot help chaperone field trips or help with the school in any way. We need and want your help, so please fill out the forms now.
