MESSAGE FROM THE PRINCIPAL
An event-filled week at CMS. Our students recently embarked on community trips, and we couldn't be more proud of their exemplary behavior. They represented CMS with pride, and their conduct reflected positively on our school community. As usual, our dedicated team of teachers has been working tirelessly to plan these events, and I want to highlight their outstanding efforts in ensuring a safe and memorable experience for our students.
