The final week of school will be a “uniform free” week for all of our scholars. We are asking that our scholars donate & turn-in their washed & cleaned uniforms so that we can replenish our clothing closet for next year. Next year we will not be a uniform school. However, scholars who report to school outside of the CMS dress code next year will be given a uniform to wear as they attend their classes.

Summer Learning Blitz Toolkit
We are only a few days away from summer break and are ready to kick off the Summer Learning Blitz! This Summer Learning Blitz campaign will begin June 13 and go through August 12. Please encourage your students to engage in learning during the summer months using district provided digital tools that are available anywhere, anytime.
We have joined with our partners to provide awesome prizes for winner participants at the end of the Summer Learning Blitz.
For every hour students spend on one of the three digital tools (Compass Learning, Kids A to Z, DreamBox) students will have their name entered into the drawing. The more time students spend on these tools, the more times their names will be entered to win AMAZING prizes.
The Summer Learning Blitz website will be live May 26. We will begin tracking student usage on June 13.
