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

    Bear Pride means following the school-wide expectations for Cell Phones & Electronics:

    Be Safe: 

    • Cell phones, devices, & other electronics must be turned OFF and kept in the student’s backpack at all times.  All times = before school, after school, brunch, and lunch.

    Be Respectful: 

    • Only use cellphones & electronics under staff supervision.
    • Never take photographs of students or school activities.

    Be Responsible: 

    • Students taking a class where they take photos around campus need to wear specific badges when taking photos and use a school-issued device.

    Go Bears!

    Safety Tips: CMS Rollers, it’s safest for you to walk your bikes, skateboards, or scooters beginning a block away from campus. After school vehicular traffic is heavy so walk your wheels until you are a block away from campus before rolling away and enjoying the rest of your day!

    Library: Are you interested in being a library aid at lunch or brunch December through February? Go to the library page on the CMS website to fill out an application. Applications are due by Wednesday, November 20th.

    Private School Applications/Recommendations:

    Cupertino Middle School Guidelines

    If you are applying to a private school for next year, please follow these guidelines:

    Step 1:  Obtain an application from the admissions office of the private high school(s). Most of these applications are online. Remember to check application deadlines!

    Step 2:  Recommendation Forms: Talk to your teacher(s) prior to putting in his/her email information in the application. The high school(s) will send online recommendation forms directly to these teachers.

    Helpful Hints: Consider giving the teacher(s) you’ve chosen to write your recommendation a “brag list” or student resume that names your extracurricular activities and interests.

    Friday, October 11th 

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

    Safety Tips:

    It’s that time of the year when daylight is getting shorter. With limited light outside, it’s easy for pedestrians, bikers, and rollers to blend into the background and not be easily seen by drivers. 

    Reflectors are a solution! 

    With bright, reflectorized clothing or reflectors on bikes, scooters, and helmets, visibility is enhanced. Reflectorized clothing and reflectors can generally be found in most sporting goods stores. Time to go shopping!

    Go Bears!

     Safety Tips:

    With bright, reflectorized clothing or reflectors on bikes, scooters, and helmets, visibility is enhanced. Reflectorized clothing and reflectors can generally be found in most sporting goods stores. Time to go shopping!

    Go Bears!

    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: If you would like to request an elective change, please come outside the front office TODAY, Thursday, August 22nd during brunch to talk to Ms. Fratus or Ms. Voigt.
