We had a very successful 7th and 8th grade curriculum night this past week. Thank you to all who attended. This coming week proves to be a great one with Team Spirit Week, our Pink Out football game to support breast cancer research and our In It to Win It team competitions on Friday. This week is all about the kids!! Ask your kids about each of the dress up day themes. I am looking forward to seeing movie characters, twins, flashbacks to other decades and lots of pink. On Friday we encourage kids to wear their team colors for the culminating event. Finally, don't forget that Wednesday is an early release day across CMS. Our students will dismiss at 1:15pm. Carpool will begin at 1:15 and buses will be called as they arrive. If you have any questions, feel free to email me. Have a great week!
