Week 5 Recap
Can you believe it is October already?! That month went FAST! As we look forward into October, we want this month to go as smooth as possible. As we continue to complete Early MCAP testing and build upon our content instruction, we are also asking our community to help foster the same conversations we are having with students regarding PRIDE (Prepared, Respectful, Independent, Disciplined, and Empathetic), and more specifically the way we talk and treat each other. Tik Tok challenges and reactive behaviors just add to the distractions in school during an already tough time in our return to the building. LMS will continue to promote positivity within our school, as we want only the BEST for each and every student. Please see the rest of this update for more information. Thank you for your continued support! Go Wildcats!

Yearly Student Emergency Forms- Now all online
CCPS uses an online form (no paper!) to verify or update student information through the PowerSchool Parent Portal. The process typically takes less than five minutes per student, and allows families to verify that all of the student's data is correct and provide updates for any important data that has changed. This process replaces the old paper form sent home in previous years. Parents, please check your email for this information from:
Please note: If the student’s address has changed, proof of residence will be required. This may be uploaded through PowerSchool or provided directly to the school.
For more information, please see the CCPS news post on this topic.
