6th Grade Camp

Students should arrive to CMS on Monday morning between 7:55 and 8:20. Luggage needs to be dropped at the basketball court/bike rack area on F Ave., and students need to check in in Granzer Hall. Buses will depart promptly at 8:45am.

Students will return to CMS between 11:30 and 12:30 on Friday. I will be sending text messages and emails when the buses leave camp and when they are about 15 minutes away from school.

At that time, students should be picked up and are free to go home. They do not need to check in on campus.

Coronado Schools Foundation

Without the support of your donations to the Coronado Schools Foundation, CMS wouldn't have coding, digital media, KCMS, engineering, performing arts, robotics, art and more !! Get involved and help us continue to provide our students with incredible learning opportunities. Join the Hive 365.
