From CMS Library Media Specialist, Mrs. Jennifer Harris . . .


This year our school will go back to having an in person Veteran's Day program. If you would like a personal invitation mailed to someone please email their name and address to Mrs. Harris or contact the school office with the information and they will give it to Mrs. Harris 205-379-3230.

Our program will be held on November 10, 2022, with breakfast for Veterans and their families beginning at 7:00 AM, and the program beginning for students at 8:30 AM. We are asking students to wear patriotic colors on this day.

Please make plans to honor our Veterans at this very special event!

Be Better Prepared for Flu Season

As influenza begins to rear its ugly head across the district, the Jefferson County Board of Education Nursing Division has provided students and families a prevention guide as we move toward the second quarter of the school year. Please take a moment to look at the guide below as we work together to keep our students, faculty, and staff healthy in the days ahead.
