Dear CMS Friends and Families,

As spring is quickly approaching, so is our Summative Aspire Assessment.  Studies have shown that students will be more successful if they have a healthy snack and drink before the tests. We would like to provide these here at school for each student, on the day(s) of testing. If you are able and would like to donate individually wrapped granola bars, crackers, animal crackers, cereal or fruit snacks, these would be greatly appreciated.  

We will also be making raffle baskets as prizes to be given to students who are in attendance for testing days. If you have any gifts or prizes you would like to donate to be included in these baskets, they would also be appreciated.

Please bring any food items and/or raffle baskets to the main office at CMS by Friday, March 29th.  You may also drop them off during your student’s Student Led Learning Conversation next week.
