Good News From CMS

Dear Parents/Guardians:

End of the 3rd Mid-Quarter
This week marks the end of the 3rd mid-quarter and it has been an active mid-quarter indeed.  Some of the student activities that took place include the first round of the National Geographic Geography Bee, the first round of the Scripps Spelling Bee, the 8th grade NeSA Writing test, and the 7th and 8th Boys’ Basketball seasons conclude this week with games against Scottsbluff on Monday, Gering on Tuesday and Alliance on Thursday.  I also want to send my congratulations to our 7th and 8th grade students that finished and presented their National History Day Projects.  There were some excellent projects this year!  

Get Texts from the Principal
Remind 101 is free online software that allows me to send school related information to parents via text message.  I will send out reminders about upcoming events, changes in school schedules, and emergency information like school closures and etc.  If you are interested in receiving text messages from the principal, please text @cmsprinc to (925) 304-6118.
