We hope that everyone enjoyed the very well attended PTC sponsored Halloween Carnival! We want to give a huge and a special thank you to Dragana Petrovic (Matia’s mom) for leading this event and all of the incredible hard work and dedication she put into it. Thank you Dragana!!! In addition we want to thank everyone who gave their time to make sure this was a successful time for our students and families. The pizza was enjoyed by all!
Parent Teacher Conferences
Conferences are scheduled for November 7th and 8th (Thursday / Friday). On Wednesday November 6th your child’s report will be available through your RenWeb portal at 4:00 pm.
The Focus of these conferences is the child’s overall development. They also afford time to share any issues or concerns you may have. Conferences should open the door to effective communication between parents and teachers. Children should not attend the conference so that the discussion may be completely open.
Conferences are twenty minute sessions. In consideration of your child’s teacher and other families, please be prompt. These non-instructional days are set aside especially for these conferences and the teachers put a lot of time and effort into preparing each child’s report. If you should miss the conference, it will not be rescheduled.
Child care is being offered for full-day ($45), for a half-day (under 5 hours $25), or for the conference only (free). You must sign up in advance to allow CMS to staff accordingly. To sign up for child care please email Jose Bolanos firstname.lastname@example.org to let him know if you will need full-day, half-day or child care only during your conference.
Thanksgiving Break Child Care
CMS will be closed for Thanksgiving Break Monday November 25th through Friday November 29th. Child Care may be offered on Monday Nov. 25th and Tuesday Nov. 26th if we have a minimum of 20 students sign up for child care. If you would like to sign up please email Jose Bolanos to inform him which days you would like and if you need half-day (less than 5 hours – $25) or full day (over 5 hours – $45). Please contact Jose no later than Friday Nov. 8th if you need to sign up for child care on the 25th or 26th.
We are very excited to be hosting our annual CMS Walk-a-thon on Wednesday November 20th. The Walk-a-thon is a fun and exciting way for students and families to get involved and help support our fundraising efforts for additional school security upgrades and new technology for the computer lab.
