The Mustang Minute
March 1, 2019 - Issue 24
Reading Across Coakley
This week was national Read Across America week and we had great spirit all week here at CMS! We had many different activities all aimed to increase our students love of reading! Students engaged in "Drop Everything and Read" (DEAR) contests where at any time of the day we would announce DEAR and our resident Thing 1 and Thing 2 would go around trying to catch students reading. Those caught would be entered into a contest for Barnes and Nobles gift cards (thanks to the PTO for sponsoring this activity!). Each day during Mustang Block students would there would be games and activities including a video of CMS teachers and their favorite books, Kahoot facts about literature and a game of Jeopardy that had student out of their seats trying to win! We ended the week in cozy pajamas and doubled our PJ collection for Cradles to Crayons in our effort to #BeatBourne! All in all it was an amazing week - take a look below at a few pictures of the fun!
Next week is jam packed as well! We will be celebrating foreign language all week with special activities and contests which will culminate in Foreign Language Night at Norwood High School on Thursday.
On Tuesday Night we have Wellness Night at CMS. There will be healthy and delicious snacks from Wegman's, Roche Brothers and Big Y. Nutrition presentations from our own Norwood Food Services (Chartwells). Mr. Nimblett, Mr. Dupuis, and Mr. Gilbert will be trying out some new activities in the gym. Mr. Quigley and Ms. Stewart will be doing presentations on Vaping and adolescent sleep habits in the library. It all starts at 6pm at CMS!
We are looking for parent feedback on our proposed elective choices for next year. It only take a minute!
A parent follow up to the survey we gave students last week about social media and teen habits.
