On Friday, May 31st CMS will be going to the aquatic center. Please remember to bring sunscreen, a towel, a swimsuit and your lunch if you didn’t sign up for a school sack lunch. Since we will be walking to the pool, it is important that you wear tennis shoes. If your parent is planning on picking you up from the pool, please make these arrangements ahead of time. If it is raining, we will have activities at Central. Students who didn’t sign up for a lunch will need to make sure they bring one.


We will have a Color Guard informational meeting for members, perspective members, and parents on Thursday, May 30th at 7pm in the High School Band Room.  We will introduce guard leadership, talk about the summer and fall schedules along with expectations and time commitments.  If you have any questions or cannot make it please contact Carolyn Hurlbut at
