Welcome to the CMS Principal’s Message for the month of December:
As we enter the month of December, traditionally a very busy month, it is important not to lose focus on the importance of sustaining our level of commitment to education. This is true not only for me, but also students, staff, parents and the community.
Each year the CMS staff makes it a focus to involve students in community service. This year, CMS will be collecting donations to fulfill a “Holiday Dinner Basket” for CMS families in need. Our goal is to fill 34 baskets. Each TASK class has been assigned a different type of food to bring in. This will run from December 2nd through the 18th. Items we are looking for are: gift cards for turkey, stuffing, cranberries, canned vegetables and relishes, jello, pudding, gravy, macaroni and cheese, cornbread mix, and potatoes. We would appreciate any of these items brought in by December 18th. Thank you in advance for helping us achieve this goal!
We will also be collecting for Toys for Tots to “Fill the Bus.” A donation box is located at the main entrance of CMS. Thanks to those who have already donated!
School is in session through Friday, December 20th. Winter Break runs from December 23rd through January 3rd. School resumes on Monday, January 6th. Have a wonderful and safe holiday with your family and friends. We look forward to the return of our students and continuing our academic drive!
Carie Walter, CMS Principal
