Please have all money turned into the CMS office by Wed., Oct. 31st

Parent- Teacher Conferences

Monday, Oct. 22nd, 4:30- 8:00pm

Wednesday, Oct. 24th, 4:30-8:00pm

Thursday, Oct. 25th, 9am-3pm

Conferences at CMS are open forum with all of the teachers in the gym. We do not schedule specific times for you to meet each teacher. We do ask you to keep each conference to 10 minutes. If more time is needed, you can schedule it with that particular teacher.

Please check in with the office first to review powerschool information and make any changes. We will make sure you have a current progress report. Grades are based on each semester. Grades are not stored at the end of the 9 weeks.

If you would like to visit with each of your student's teachers, you will need to make an allowance of 1-1/2 - 2 hours for conference time.


Monday, Oct. 22nd - Thursday, Oct. 25th

The book fair will be open during the school day in the library and during parent-teacher conferences.

If you are interested in volunteering to help out any time slot, please contact Terri Ahles 316-650-1059 or
