Summer Newsletter

From Jamison to Lagos, Nigeria...Ms. Young is back and updating the Community!

Ms. Young, 5th Grade Teacher, has made her way back to the United States. Ms. Young completed her mission of the "Pencil Project" by actually traveling to Lagos, Nigeria to see the project through its completion. During her travels, Ms. Young took pictures and journaled her experiences. She has posted some incredible pics and outlined her trip through her writing. Please visit her website at http://www.cbsd.org/Page/9301 to see her experiences.

Class Placement Notification

On August 5th, you and your child will be able to visit Jamison's website http://www.cbsd.org/Page/25 to read a letter from their new teacher! Simply find your child's room number assignment (it will be linked to a teacher) and it will direct you to the teacher's website.

I want to thank the community for being so supportive during this process. Remember you, the parent, set the tone for the year. Thank you for your support!

5th and 6th Grade Math Placement Letters

Fifth and Sixth grade math letters were sent out today to specific families in the community. If your child met the criteria to be placed into one of these classrooms (Accelerated Math in 5th Grade or Pre-Algebra in 6th Grade), you'll receive a letter in the mail. The criteria was sent home with your child's report card on the last day of school.
