Wednesday, October 31, CMS will celebrate Halloween! Enjoy the day by following these guidelines:
Let’s make this Halloween a true CMS festivity! Go Bears, Ghouls, and Goblins!
We are looking for parent and student volunteers to host booths representing their own or any country. You can prepare bite-size food for sampling (a crowd favorite!), lead a craft activity, teach some basic greetings in your native language, teach a few dance steps, show art, or share other aspects of your culture!
CMS-PTO will provide tables, chairs, and reimburse up to $100 in expenses for each booth. If you need additional people to assist in your booth, we’ll find you help or help you ourselves! Visit www.cms-pto.org or email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
CMS offers a Homework Center Monday through Thursday from 3:00 - 4:00 in the school library starting August 27. The Homework Center is supervised by a teacher, and students will have access to technology and the necessary resources to complete assignments. The Homework Center is offered on a drop-in basis; no registration is necessary. Arrangements should be made so that students are picked up or walk directly home no later than 4:00 as there is no campus supervision after that time.
Safe Routes to School
Parents, if you are in the car driving near ANY school between 7:30-9:30 in the morning or between 2:30-4:30 in the afternoons, SLOW DOWN and watch for students walking and rolling. It’s suggested to slow down to even 15 mph around schools. Every child and adult walking and rolling on the street is one less car on the roads. Be respectful of the time it takes for them to move across your path. Keep in mind that children are careless and unpredictable sometimes, so you must be extra careful when driving near them.
