CSMA December News!

A brief newsletter to share big news!

Principal's Message

Greetings CSMA Families,

I hope this newsletter finds you healthy and well. Thank you for your patience and kindness as we navigate to a full remote schedule temporarily. We are looking forward to welcoming students back into the buildings as soon as we can and will continue to support our scholars as they learn from home. The schools will be open for faculty and staff and Grab and Go Breakfast and Lunch will be available for pick up daily at the Linwood Campus from 9am-1pm.

This month we will be celebrating scholars by recognizing those who have achieved honors and awards for the 1st Marking Period. We will be sending announcements via email, celebrating in class, and calling scholars in via TEAMS for A-1 Principal's Club Luncheons.

If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to call us at either CSMA locations:

Beechwood Campus: 203-275-4250

Linwood Campus: 203-275-4200

Yours in partnership,

Mrs. Davis
