Hello CMS families! Our students will complete the Georgia Student Health Survey (GSHS) within the next few weeks. Per the Georgia Department of Education, the GSHS assesses student perceptions of school climate and safety. Please email your child’s counselor by Wednesday, 2/9/22, if you do not want him/her to participate.
