Dear Colt Parents,


Another great week at CMS is in the books! Next week we will have a four day school week followed by a four day weekend. In this newsletter you will find information on the upcoming final exam schedule for your convenience including our early release days (12:10) on May 31st and June 1st. I hope you have a great weekend!

Lunch Balance

It is that time of year that we ask parents to take a look and be aware of lunch account balances. If you have not already signed up online you can go to myschoolbucks.com and sign up for free to view daily transactions & balances. We hope that our students have a nutritious and healthy summer!

Last Week of School Schedule & Student Pick Up

Pictured below is the last week of school schedule. Please note that on Wednesday, May 31st & Thursday, June 1st, students will be released at 12:10. We ask that if students are being picked up that plans are made so that we do not have students waiting outside for an extended period of time after 12:10 for safety concerns.

SIXTH AND SEVENTH GRADERS

6th and 7th graders received a second course verification sheet. Students have one last time to make the change. Please read instructions on the back of the letter.

You do not have to return the form if changes are not needed. Please remember that this is not a schedule but a listing of the courses. If you need to make a change, please return by Thursday, May 25th to the counseling department.

SEVENTH AND EIGHTH GRADERS

On Monday we met with 7th graders and on Wednesday we met with 8th graders to give a refresher about ACT (Acknowledge, Care, and Tell a Trusted Adult) from the Signs of Suicide Program that students had in September. We also had presenters from Santa Fe Youth talk with the students about choices, goals, and plans for the future and the dangers of drugs and alcohol. This was our final guidance lesson of the school year. We have enjoyed working with the students this year and hope they have gained some take away knowledge throughout the year to support them in their endeavors.

For current CMS students who will not be attending a GCISD school for the 2017-2018 school year, please notify CMS Registrar Shari Vanderwork at shari.vanderwork@gcisd.net.

Please contact the counseling department if you have any questions.
