Dear Parents,

Thank you for being patient as CMS continues to finalize our schedule for the 2022-2023 school year.    We are anticipating that the CMS schedule will be finalized by Wednesday Aug. 3, 2022.  However, lockers assignments will be released on Monday Aug 1, at 3:00 pm for students to attend the Open Building/Locker Launch on Tuesday.      

A reminder, due to safety for all students and staff, lockers will be used for lunches, backpacks, and coats during the school day.  An informational sheet how to open lockers will be available at the front entrance along with a map of CMS and where lockers are located.  

If you are unable to make it Tuesday, Aug 2nd, we also have an Open Building/Locker Launch on Aug. 9th from 2:00 – 7:00 pm.  

Please stop by the PTO table for a quick refreshment and information on how to become involved in PTO activities.

Looking forward to meeting your 8th grade student.   

Cathy Britts-Axen
Parents, if you are interested in sub teaching in our district, please contact the office at 1-847-464-6000.
