Second Semester Updates

Thursday, January 25, 2018

Welcome back and Happy New Year!  I hope that this message finds your family having enjoyed a wonderful break and starting to settle back into the school routine for the second semester.  For those new families who are joining us this semester, we welcome you and would like to share that we are here to help; please let us know how we can support your family in the transition to CMS.

As is the case this time of year, CMS leadership team members have been working these past few months to recruit teachers with all but a few of the 25 positions already filled for next year.  For the remaining positions, several members of our leadership team will be traveling to Boston this week for the next international recruiting fair.  Also, as shared in December in the Board communication, CMS will be returning to the Principal and Assistant Principal model that was previously in place in the Middle and High Schools before this year.  We anticipate communicating the appointment of the two new Assistant Principals by the end of this month.

We are fortunate at CMS to have a long, rich history of providing outstanding educational experiences for students.  On the weekend of March 14th-18th, CMS will be celebrating our 85th Anniversary starting with our MOSAIC Grand Exhibit & Ensemble Performances by students, along with the CMS Benefit Gala and Auction fundraiser, the General Assembly & Class Parade, our Alumni Reunion Party, and the annual Spring Fest.  It will be a week of celebration in honor of our community school.  Please join us!

As a parent, I find that the second semester moves way too quickly and with a senior daughter graduating this year, I am certain that this will be the case again.  Therefore, I plan to enjoy more of the small events that occur day-to-day as well as embracing the bigger milestones for our family this year.  My hope is that you are also able to do the same in your children’s lives.

As always, thank you for your partnership with CMS and have a great Spring!
