CMS Families...

As we enter into the last full week of May, I am happy to report that we are hitting our stride on all cylinders. We are all on the final push to make it to the finish line. Staying focused and connecting with students is our only method of operation right now. As I have stated many times, I am very proud of our students and staff as they continue to work through one of the toughest years in education.

As you all know, this will be the final week of MCAS testing. Grades 5 & 8 will be taking their Science, Technology and Engineering tests on Monday and Tuesday. The rest of this week will be allocated to make up testing for all grades. I want to thank everyone for doing their part in ensuring that our students were ready, relaxed and confident. It’s all part of learning, but being caring and understanding only helps as well.

We are all looking forward to another great week at school. As always, please reach out to me with any questions or concerns.

Yours in education,

Dean W. Packard - Principal

Mr. Rogalski - Assistant Principal
