CMSS MONDAY MESSAGE...
November 5, 2018
RESPECT, EXPLORE, ACHIEVE, LEAD
Message from the Boss...
Faculty Meeting Monday. This is a ACT Aspire Interim Testing meeting. Please be present and on time.
Don't forget about Spelling Bee! School Spelling Bee is Wednesday, November 14th!
November 9th- Hat Day $1.00 for Builders Club
As you can see I added a R.E.A.L. Teacher/Staff nomination form on Google forms. I will send this out each 9 weeks for teachers and staff to nominate their own co-workers. It is completely anonymous unless you note it on the nomination form. If there is a teacher or staff member that you feel are showing R.E.A.L. Panther qualities nominate them!
ACT Interim Testing Information
-Teachers bring laptop/devices to Test Training on Monday
-Paras stop by the Counseling Center for test training sometime during the week. We need All paras that serve at anytime during the day in a general education classroom trained.
-If teachers must miss the meeting Monday due to ELO or any other reason then they must make up training with the counselors before November 9. They need to set up a time with Mrs. True or Mrs. Terrell.
-Advisory teachers need to come sort tickets during plan times on Wednesday or Thursday.
Here is the link to be able to nominate teachers and/or staff members for R.E.A.L. Panther!
WEATHER CHANGES- IT'S GOING TO GET COLD!
Cooler weather seems to have arrived, and cold weather will soon be the norm. Keep a watch for students that are coming to school each day without an appropriate jacket/coat, socks, and/or shoes. Please make sure that you contact Mrs. True, Mrs. Terrell or myself to get proper weather attire.
FROM THE CAFETERIA
Please remember to notify the cafeteria manager of any field trips that will be taking kiddos out of lunches so I can make the appropriate changes to our counts.
Also IF sack lunches will be needed the cafeteria manager needs to know approximately how many will need a lunch- including bus drivers and teachers at least 3 weeks before the field trip to order in sack lunch foods.
The morning of the field trip or the day before a field trip a final count and the names of those receiving the lunch will be needed. This is for accounting purposes and allergies.
Thanks so much!
**Field Trips need to be requested as normal. Please make sure the correct date format is used. For example, 01/01/2019. We need accurate counts for students and teachers. Please do not estimate. We need to be notified at least a week in advance of any changes to the number of riders.
**We are only able to provide five drivers per day. Once we have reached our limit for a particular day, field trips will be closed.
**Trips should be scheduled to leave no earlier than 8:30AM. ALL trips should return to the school before 2:00PM. These times will allow for potential traffic delays.
**Incidental fees (i.e. Entrance or admittance fees) for drivers will be be covered by the school or a receipt(s) from the driver to be reimbursed will be sent to the building principal for processing.
**If more buses are requested than are needed and a driver has already been scheduled for the trip, the school will be responsible for the pay of the extra driver.
**Teachers/Sponsors are responsible for the behavior of the students while on the trip. Students and staff need to remain seated while the bus is moving.
**Teachers/Sponsors need to check the bus at the end of the trip to make sure their students have not left personal items, such as backpacks, instruments, cell phones, or trash on the bus.
Here is the link for the Teacher Handbook. Let me know if you have any questions.

CHRISTMAS FOR KIDS
November 2, 2018
It is time to look forward to the Holiday season. I do hope you and your family will have a wonderful season.
We will be putting the “Christmas for Kids” boxes out in your building very soon and we hope that your school will participate in helping us collect toys for this very worthwhile cause. If you do not want a box in your school, please let us know.
Also, please let your children know that the boxes are at your school and if you can, send something home that let’s the parents know also. Please tell them to bring new toys to help children that live in the Cabot School District area that may not otherwise have a bright Christmas. The boxes will be in place by November 12th . Please tell your teachers and counselors about the “Christmas for Kids” project. They may want to have a competition to see which class can bring the most toys. We need all the help we can get to gather as many new toys as possible.
You may also make a monetary donation to 100 Gunsmoke, Austin, AR 72007 or bring it to the Warehouse at 310 G.P. Murrell Drive, Cabot, AR 72023. See Rita Stewart or Bill Holden at this address. We are located in Cabot’s Industrial Park, off of Hwy 367, behind Dr. Shurley’s office. You may call 743-3560 for more information or directions. Our hours are 7:30-4 p.m. M-F.
We look forward to making this project a success again this year and we can do it with your support!
Thank you for all of your help.
