Parent teacher conferences are a great opportunity for parents to visit with teachers to discuss their children’s progress up to this point of the year.  It is a time for parents to get more detailed information than just what is conveyed by the report card.

A large portion of the teaching staff will be using an online signup format.  Please see the link below for details.  The teachers whose names do not appear on the online scheduler will be hosting drop-in conferences (first come/first serve; no appointment needed).  If you have specific questions regarding your child’s teacher please contact the teacher directly to assist you.

Each student will also  receive a copy of the “Conference Letter for Parents” from his/her homeroom teacher in the near future to take home.

The links below will assist you with the scheduling procedure.  We look forward to seeing you on November 24th!

download (1)

The middle school will be hosting a 6th Grade Math Night on Tuesday, October 28th from 6-7 p.m. at the middle school.  The goal of the meeting is to provide an introduction and overview of  the new 6th grade math program, Go Math.  The meeting will consist of two 25 minute presentations.  The first will take place in the middle school cafeteria.  This portion of the evening will focus on the variety of resources that Go Math offers and explain how parents can access the online portions of the program.  The second 25 minute presentation parents will meet with their child’s math teacher.  During this time your child’s math teacher will share how they implement the Go Math resources in their instruction.

We look forward to the opportunity to talk with you about your child’s education.  Students achieve more when teachers and parents work together!

Each teacher is requesting parents to RSVP for the evening to ensure they can provide adequate seating/space for the number of parents attending.  Your child should bring home the invitation for you to complete and return early this week.  For your convenience, I have included the invitation below.  Just click on the link to access the invitation.  You can also email your child’s teacher to inform them that you will be attending.

CMS 6th Grade Math Night Invitation

A Very Busy Week at CMS

This past week (10/13-10/16) we were very buys at CMS.

On Tuesday, our 7th and 8th grade students participated in an assembly titled Robby’s Voice.  Rob Brandt, the President of Robby’s Voice, shared with our students the truth about the struggles of addiction and the impact it has, not only on the individual who uses drugs, but those who love them.  Rob Brandt’s presentation was powerful and moving for our students.  His message is inspired by the loss of his own son to drug addiction.

On Tuesday, we also held an 8th grade parent meeting for the Washington D.C. trip that is scheduled for May 18-20.  Parents were informed of important due dates and policies related to the trip.  During the meeting, parents heard from the administration, the school nurse, and a representative from the tour company (Nowak Tours).  If you are an 8th grade student or parent you can stay up to date on the trip by clicking on the “Washington D.C. Information” tab at the top of my blog.  Forms and information  will be updated periodically as more information comes available.

On Wednesday, we concluded our spirit week with our annual Tailgate Party.  We had a very spirited week of dressing up and activities that highlighted the unique character of our students at CMS.  The tailgate ended with a march up to the high school football stadium where our students did a great job cheering on their favorite football team.  Thank you to the many staff members who participated in the tailgate and assisted with football game.  Go Colts!!!
