CMS Tribe Talks

August 14, 2022

Week 2 @CMS

We had a great first week at CMS getting to know our new classes and new students! We saw lots of smiles as teachers and students got back in to the swing of things, and reunited with friends.

There are many events coming up at CMS! Parents and students can keep informed by checking out the CMS School events calendar on the CMS website.The calendar can be added to your phone or computer by clicking the “Sync Calendar” button in the right corner, and choosing the platform that works for you!

This week, CMS is SO EXCITED to be able to offer our first open house in several years, called Tribe Talks! 5th and 8th grade grades will have their sessions on Monday, August 15, and 6th and 7th grades will meet on Tuesday, August 16. Both sessions begin at 5:30 in the CMS Gym. At Tribe Talks, parents and students will get an update on important information at CMS, meet the teachers, visit the classrooms, get lockers, and SO MUCH MORE! There will also be opportunities to get your Parent portal information, purchase PE Uniforms, as well as the latest Warrior shirt sold by CMS. Please plan to enter the building through the gym doors. We can’t wait to see all of our CMS families together again! See below for more information about Tribe Talks!

Hope to see you there!

Tribe Talks Open House

We want to get to KNOW your family!

We at CMS feel that over the past few years, the COVID restrictions have made it difficult for schools and familes to form REAL connections. We want to change that this year!

On the following dates, CMS will be returning to the TRIBE Talks Format of open house.

Monday, Aug. 15:

  • 5th and 8th Grades
  • 5:30-7:00

Tuesday, Aug. 16:

  • 6th and 7th Grades
  • 5:30-7:00

Families will begin in the gym at 5:30 on their designated nignt for a welcome from administration, followed by a brief Title I information meeting. Parents and students will then be dismissed to the student's homeroom, where each subject area teacher will spend a few minutes introducing themselves, their content, and school procedures, followed by a brief Q&A session.

***Students who paid the locker donation during the previous week will receive their locker number from their teacher at the end of their grades' TRIBE Talk. The school will be open until 7:30 to allow students to setup/ decorate/ practice opening lockers.


5:30- 5:45 Welcome/ Title I meeting

5:45-6:30 TRIBE Talks Sessions:

Families will report to student's homeroom for grade level tribe talks.Teachers will rotate through each classroom, and give a brief informational session about their content and expectations.

6:30-7:30 Locker time and Q&A with teachers

We know that this is offered a week after school begins, however, we want to be able to have time to get to know your child so that we can better meet the needs of families, and address questions and concerns.

If you are concerned about your child transitioning to a new grade and would like to come in to visit prior to school beginning, please contact an administrator. We will be glad to schedule a tour or answer any questions.
