Christopher Milo Visit

Monday, March 16th CMS was visited by Christopher Milo to share not only his personal stories of overcoming adversity, but also to begin a movement in our building to promote and sustain a positive culture.  Christopher shared with the students the 13 Messages of Milo that focus on caring and succeeding together as a community.  Portions of Christopher’s performance included his gift of music.  When Christopher is not working with students, he is a concert Pianist, who works with some of today’s biggest names in music and movies (Jennifer Lopez and Steven Spielberg).

Immediately following the assembly, students began bringing Christopher’s message to life in our building by building positive banners and sharing positive messages with others using Post-It notes.

Christopher will return next Fall to check back on our building and continue to spread his message with our students and staff.  I have posted some pictures below of the assembly.  Enjoy!

Thursday, February 26th a meeting was held with 8th grade students who will be involved with the Washington D.C. trip.

During the meeting the students were informed of behavior expectations for the trip.  All school rules apply to students while on the trip.

Students were provided their Roommate Preference form and their Bus/Trip Code of Conduct form.  Both documents were reviewed with the students during the meeting.   Parent signatures are REQUIRED on both forms in order for students to submit them Roommate Preference form.

The Roommate Preference form and the Bus/Trip Code of Conduct form will be collected during lunch periods on March 18th and 19th.

There have been changes made to the Roommate Preference form from years past.  Please review the information carefully.  If your child has lost the Roommate Preference form, it is also available on my blog by clicking on the “Washington D.C. Information” tab.
