CMSS Word of the Week- Generosity
Each week, CMSS will have a Word of the Week. Teachers will use their Advisory time to discuss the word and what it means/looks like at school, home, our community, and around the world.
This week's Word of the Week is....GENEROSITY.
Generosity is the quality of being kind and generous. It includes being kind, understanding, and not selfish. Helping students feel empathy for others and to respond with generosity is a trait we can foster in our classrooms and in our community.
"Money is but one venue for generosity. Kindness is an even more valuable currency."
Green Thumb of the Week
This week's "Green Thumb" award winner nominated by her peers is Mrs. LeAnn Robertson!
She chose her Co-Green Thumb to be Mrs. Connie Howard, our school registrar.

Car Rider Procedures
Avoid dropping off/picking up your student in the parking lots. This creates traffic that could result in an injury to our students and staff. Parking lots are reserved for those parking and entering the building.
Morning Drop Off
- Drop off is 1 lane. Use the lane closest to the building.
- Please pull as far forward as possible when dropping off your student. This allows more students to exit the cars and speeds up the drop off line.
- Students will enter the building through the front doors.
Afternoon Pick Up
- Pick up is 2 lanes after entering the CMSS driveway. Cars must use the "Merge" lane to create 1 lane of traffic heading toward Kerr Station Road. Panther Trail is a city street and must remain open for through traffic.
- Present your placard to the caller as you approach the beginning of the car line.
- Students will listen for their name and go to the number called with their name.
- Cars will pull up to the number called. (#1 is near the 6th grade hall/closest to the Kerr Station exit/#10 is near the 5th grade hall/closest to the caller).
- Students will wait until the vehicle comes to a complete stop to load their car.
