Chromebook Covers: A Reminder to CMS Families
CMS Homecoming Week 2022 Events Announced
To help you prepare for Homecoming Week activities, you will find the schedule for the week in the graphic below. We had hoped to add a home game replacing the cancelled West Blocton game later in the season. Unfortunately, we were unable to do that so Homecoming will have to be early in the school year.
We look forward to this week and your students participating in all of the planned activities!
