Principals' Weekly Message...

Principals’ Weekly Message: The Little Things

Parents & Guardians:

I want to take a moment to thank the PTO for putting on another amazing Fall Fun Fest at CMS. The turnout was fantastic and it seemed that everyone had a great time. The PTO does so much for so many within our schools; we couldn’t do a lot of things without their support. I want to thank everyone who came out to support this great event.

We have a very busy week ahead filled with field trips and lots of learning opportunities. This is just the way we like it.

I hope everyone has an amazing week!
