CTMS Prowler

March 24, 2023

Hello Panthers,

It has been a great week at CTMS. Administrators were able to get out and view instruction in many classes this week. We are seeing awesome things among our classes.

Spring has [officially] SPRUNG! This is always a great time to remind everyone of the CTMS dress code - Clothing must cover areas from one armpit across to the other armpit, down to approximately fingertip in length on the upper thighs (see image). Tops must have shoulder straps. Rips or tears in clothing should be lower than the fingertip length. Additional information regarding the dress code can be found here.

Ramadan began this week. Ramadan is a month in the Islamic calendar when Muslims observe fasting from sunrise to sunset. It can be a difficult time for many to get through, especially students who have to go through a normal school day without eating or drinking. We would like families and student(s) who observe Ramadan to know that students have the ability to go to an alternate location during their assigned lunch. Students may visit one of the following classes during their lunch. We would like to thank these teachers for volunteering to host students.

  • 6th grade lunch: Mrs. Agunsday, Room A9
  • 7th grade lunch: Mrs. Michaels, Room 26 or Mrs. Triggs, Room 60
  • 8th grade lunch: Mrs. Triggs, Room 60

We are looking forward to the next 9 school days before spring break and all the great things our students and staff get to do. We hope our students take heart to Mrs. Caltrider's motto and "CHOOSE AWESOMENESS".

Ms. Reed, Principal
