Cowboy Parent Courier

May 22, 2020

Hello Cowboys! Only a couple more days and then we wrap up this school year. I am so proud of our students and how they have stepped up this quarter. They have produced some really quality work!

We completed our drop-off and pick-up this week. It was great seeing so many of you! I have received emails from people who were unable to attend. I am saving those emails and will get back to you soon. This next week is busy closing out the year, but I will arrange something asap.

If you have a MISD issued laptop and plan to remain in MISD next year, please keep the laptop until August. If you move over the summer, please notify us before leaving, and we will arrange to collect your laptop.

Finally, our teachers want to send a special message to our 2020 8th grade class. We hope you enjoy watching this special message just for you! https://youtu.be/Vq5HCnO0nug


Have a good weekend!

Remember next week kicks off our “Adopt a Teacher” program to celebrate Teacher Appreciation Week. We still have two open slots to adopt a staff member. volunteersignup.org/D4DPR

Each teacher has provided a “favorites page” linked HERE to help you get started.


If the teacher indicates that CMS porch delivery is preferred, those drive-through deliveries can be made on the CMS porch on Thursday, May 7th from 10:00 am-11:00 am. Our administrative staff will get the items to the teachers for you.


Thank you so much for making this a successful program for our school!
