Coming Up...

Thank you so much for the monetary donations from Mr. Crisp & Mrs. Ulloa!

Monday, June 6

  • Field Day (all day)

* A plastic or disposable water bottle to refill through the day

* Change of clothes and a towel

* Tennis shoes or water shoes (No “slides,” flip flops, or open toed shoes) Students will not be allowed to participate in activities with the incorrect shoes. Students are encouraged to wear “old” or “play” shoes because they will get wet and dirty.

* All students should plan to wear shorts and a bright colored shirt. There will be water stations so shirts and clothes could be damaged or ruined. If girls choose to wear bathing suits they must be worn under their shorts and shirt. Students must still abide by CMS dress code regulations.

* Please apply sunscreen before school and provide extra if needed

Tuesday, June 7- Please see the sign up genius to sign up for popsicles, water, or popcorn. Please pop the popcorn at home. The more the merrier!
