    Hi CMS! This is your Bear Pride Reminder of the Day! 

    Safety Tips: Every Day CMS, it’s so important for you to be aware of your surroundings when walking or rolling in the neighborhood. 

    Tip #1: When you cross any street, make sure to make eye contact with drivers so that you know they are fully aware of your presence. 

    Tip #2: Be mindful of the rules of the road and keep to your designated space, like sidewalks and crosswalks, to be safe!

    Go Bears!

    Elective Change Requests: 

    Elective Changes: Counselors made every effort to place students in electives that were indicated on their elective form. As stated throughout the elective selection process, elective requests are not guaranteed and students may have been placed in an elective they did not select.

    Counselors will only be accepting elective change requests for students who received an elective not on their elective form. If your elective was not on your form as ANY of your choices and you would like to request an elective change, please come outside the front office Wednesday, August 21st and Thursday, August 22nd during brunch to talk to Ms. Fratus and Ms. Voigt. 

    ~ Requests will only be taken on Wednesday and Thursday. Please keep in mind that most elective classes are full, and most schedule changes will not be granted. Thank you! 

    Library Announcements: 

    The library will be open to students at brunch and lunch starting Tuesday, September 3rd. Please make sure to have your student ID card out and ready when checking out a book.
