Outdoor Lunches

Dear Cougar Families,

In our never-ending quest to meet the social, emotional and physical needs of our students, we would like to offer the kids an opportunity to eat outside during their lunch period. CSMS would like to introduce this idea during the week of December 14-18. In order to make outdoor lunch a safe and pleasant option for students, we need your help. We need volunteers to provide light supervision during lunch 11:30-1:30, in our outdoor spaces. If you are able to help out, please contact Mr. Kurt Obersteller, Assistant Principal.

Chaperons needed!!

The 8th grade class will be taking a field trip to the Paramount Theater on Monday, January 11, 2016 and we're in need of chaperons. It's pretty easy duty - - you get to ride an AISD bus to downtown Austin and are dropped off at the doors of the theater. Then you get to watch "Dr. Kaboom Live Wire: The Electricity Tour" with some of the best 8th graders we've ever met. You'll then be whisked back to Small MS before any of the yucky Austin traffic hits the road. We will need your help from 10:45 - 2:00 on that day. If you're interested in this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, please contact Pamela Komnick ( for details. Thanks so much!!!
