Enjoying A Traditional Snow Day

Principal's Weekly Message: Building Capacity....

CMS Families...

As I sit in my office during a "traditional snow day," I can't help but think that students are outside playing in the snow. Well, that might be wishful thinking, but I hope that they are, as I have great memories of doing that growing up. We knew that the snow would eventually be upon us. Anyway, I hope everyone is safe and enjoying the day.

We have another busy week ahead. I personally want to thank everyone for working with us as we continue to navigate through COVID. There's no doubt these days are challenging; however, we are continuously optimistic and we will be here to support our students and families. Do not hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or concerns.

Wishing everyone a great weekend!

Yours in education,

Dean W. Packard - Principal

Mr. Rogalski - Assistant Principal
