CMS Daily Announcements Wednesday, April 13th~White Day


Morning Announcements for students


There will be a meeting Thursday for all 8th grade girls who are interested in playing basketball next year. Students will go to SSR for attendance and then will be released to the auditorium for the meeting.


We are starting to get neighborhood complaints about how students are going through our neighbors yards, knocking things down, or climbing in their trees. Part of learning to be a good citizen is respecting other’s property and rights. We talk about being respectful at school and we ask that you be respectful on your way to and from school. Our neighborhood, is your neighborhood. Please treat our neighbors and their property with respect.

Congratulations to Dylan Metzger on reaching the sixth grade book challenge.  Way to go, Dylan!  (Please read just on Wednesday. Thanks, Shawn)

New Boundary Look Up Tool Available!

Posted: 15 Mar 2016 08:55 AM PDT

There is now a new “boundary” lookup tool for parents to use for determining which school a certain address “should” attend. It’s very easy and intuitive. (It DOES NOT indicate whether a student should ride the bus or walk.)



  • To use it full screen click the “full screen” button in the upper right-hand corner of the map interface.
  • You can use the sprocket icon to choose which “layers” are shown. By default only the district layer is shown, but you can change that to elementary boundaries, middle school etc.
  • When you search an address it will show you which elementary, middle school and high school (only one choice) that address should attend.
  • You can also click the directions and it will use google maps to plot walking or driving directions from the home to the school.


Parents: The lunch for April 13th will be switched to a sack lunch.  Students will receive a sack lunch containing a cold cut combo sandwich, carrots, apple, cookie, and milk. Students will be eating outside this day with their teachers and classmates!
