The first quarter has come to a close and Monday marks the first day of the second grading period. If you needed to conference with your child’s teachers and were unable to schedule a conference last Friday, please contact your counselor and she will be happy to get you on the schedule. Report cards will go home in the near future.
Tickets go on sale this week for our Fall Musical, Legally Blond. The show is destined to be outstanding so be sure to get your tickets as generally speaking each of the shows sell out. You will; not want to miss out on seeing our talented actors, actresses, singers and dancers!
This week I will host a Coffee with the Principal on Tuesday evening at 6:30 PM. The purpose of this event is to engage parents in a candid discussion on how we are doing at CHMS with including all students. I want to get a true picture of the culture here at our school. It is our goal for all children regardless of race, ethnicity, or socio-economic status to feel valued and celebrated at CHMS. Please come out and share your open and honest ideas to help us create an environment that is inclusive and celebratory of our extreme diversity.
Have a great week!Jamie W. Brooks

BoxTop Challenge - Ends October 30
The Box Tops pizza party contest is in the final stretch. Thank you to those who have already participated and for the ongoing support you have given to CHMS. Did you know that if each CHMS student just brought in 10 Box Tops this month, we would be close to our yearly goal of $2,000? It is not too late to win a pizza party for your class and a gift card for your Homeroom teacher. Check your pantry for Box Tops on cereal boxes, soup cans, juice bottles, frozen vegetables, sandwich bags, aluminum pans, and even some packaged undergarments. The contest will run until October 30. Support your school and bring in those valid Box Tops.
