CMS Parents & Guardians:

It’s hard to believe that we are coming up on the last week of March. The weather is beginning to break and soon we will be starting our softball and baseball seasons (if Mother Nature cooperates with us). It’s a great time of year and there are lots of activities going on at CMS! On a side note, especially if you are a basketball fan, I hope you are enjoying some of the great games going on; both the women’s and men’s tournaments are always exciting. I’m looking forward to another great week at school.

Wishing everyone an amazing week.
