Every year at the Spring Fling we give special recognition.  Since we were unable to host that very special event we don’t want the school year to end without making those acknowledgements.  Amy and Sean Gailey have been with CMS for 9 years!  From their daughter River’s first year they became actively involved with the school.  Amy joined the PTC where she served for many years.  Sean lead the famous Halloween Haunted House and has served on the Board of Directors as the President.  He has been a strength and guidance for the school and board.  We thank the Gailey’s from the bottom of our hearts!  

Mandy Odenwalder has a 20 year work anniversary this coming August!  Mandy has served in a variety of positions at the school in the past 20 years, starting out as a Child Care Assistant before taking her AMS Montessori Training and becoming a Lower Elementary teacher.  Mandy now has three children attending CMS, is passionate about Botany and we are thankful for all of her dedication to the school for the past two decades!  Congratulations Mandy!!

Thank you!

We want to thank all of our families, teachers and staff for all of your dedication, efforts, teamwork and support during this last trimester!  This was a new journey for all and knowing we had an incredible community made it possible to navigate through this time together!  Good bye to all of our families that will not be returning in the fall, we wish you well and we look forward to seeing all of our returning families for the new fall semester.  Thank you all and have a wonderful and deserved summer break!!
