CMS Families...

Spring officially began today. That means longer days, warmer weather and the beginning of new life. As for all of us at CMS, we are really hitting our stride and moving forward with the learning journey. I say this all the time, but I am really proud of my staff and students for continuing to stay the course and put in the work to become "A Little Better Each Day." This is all we can ever ask of anyone. I also want to say thank you to you, our parents and caregivers, because we always have to be a team.

I want to extend a special congratulations to our Show Choir group, Mirage, as they had an outstanding performance in Andover last Friday. The hard work they put in definitely paid off with their championship performance - keep up the great work, as you make us proud.

Additionally, I wanted to thank the parents and caregivers that attended our Conversation & Coffee virtual session last Friday at 9:00 a.m. It’s always great to be able to hear opinions and field questions from all that attended; plus, it gave my Student Support Team members and me a chance to brag about some of the great things happening in school. We will have more of these in the coming days.

As always, please feel free to reach out to me directly if I can be of any assistance.

Wishing everyone a great week.

Yours in education,

Dean W. Packard - Principal

Mr. Rogalski - Assistant Principal
