Happy Spring Mountaineers!
It is always refreshing when spring is around the corner. There are many events coming up that you may need to put on your calendar. Tag information night for incoming 6th grade students is March 4th at 5:30. This is a great way to find out from our students' perspective what it is like to be in TAG at CMS. Parents will need to get the decision to attend CMS TAG program letters back to Chris Huff in the district office by March 21st.
For 8th grade students, the high schools will be visiting the second and third week of March to help with schedules at their projected high schools. All 8th grade students will be taking our ACT/Explore test on March 10th and 11th. This is a college prep test, and we offer it to all 8th grade students to give them preparation for the actual ACT test they will take their junior year.
For our current 6th and 7th grade students, our counselors will be visiting classrooms to forecast for the elective classes on March 10th. Parents please watch for a form coming home to sign off for the elective classes chosen by your children.
I want to extend a sincere thank you to all the participants in our 4th annual Shiver and Shake this year for our Sparrow, Corey Cobbs. It is delightful to watch our students give back to a fellow student in such a touching way. The students raised over $1500 to give to Corey's family.
We will be having our annual Talent Show on March 21st. If you have an unique talent to share, please take the leap and tryout during the week of March 10th - 15th! Speaking of talent, our concert choir will be attending the Clackamas Jazz Festival on March 13th and 14th to compete against many high school and college students. Kudos to Marna Larsen, our Choral Director, to challenge our students and give them this opportunity!
Have a wonderful spring break from March 24th - 28th. If you are staying home or going away, we wish you a relaxing and rejuvenating week off.
