Parent Meeting and Open House Rescheduled

It is with regret that CMS must reschedule the Open House from August 9th to August 14th from 5:30-7:00.  There was a roof leak that flooded both bathrooms and two classrooms on the 3rd floor.  We are in the process of replacing carpets and repairing the bathrooms.  Students should bring all of their school supplies to the Open House on August 14th and they can put their supplies in their lockers at that time.  Mrs. Rogers, Mrs. Summers and Mr. Dressel will be available to help students remember/find combinations and locker numbers.
