Parents & Guardians:

Term #1 is quickly coming to an end and all final grades will be available for parents and guardians on Wednesday, November 6th. It’s my sincere hope that all students are meeting their desired academic and social goals. We will be looking very closely at all of our student data at the end of the first quarter to ensure we are adjusting practices to support and enrich all types of learners. Please reach out to teachers, guidance or administration if you have any questions or concerns.

On a side note, I’m looking forward to our annual STUCO Halloween Dance, which will be held tonight for CMS’ 7th & 8th grade students 6:30-9:00 p.m., it should be lots of fun for the students. Make sure you watch on Twitter and Instagram for highlights of the evening.

I hope everyone has an amazing weekend!
