In order for a student to be checked out in the Express Checkout line at 12:30 pm (under the bus canopy), the student must have part 2 and the person picking up your student must have part 1 of the blue form that will come home this week. The person picking up your student through the Express Check-out line does not have to be on the students check-out list, as long as they have the Blue Form part 1 and the form is signed by you, the parent. If you do not have the Express Check-out form, you must come in the office and follow regular check-out procedures. Check-outs prior to 12:30 pm will be unexcused.

Sept 18-22 CMS will observe our Homecoming Week. We are going to have dress up days Monday-Thursday, but we are going to dress up with meaning. This year, we are going to use our Spirit Dress up days in order to raise money and awareness for September’s Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. Each day’s theme is tied to a suggested giving, such as Monday’s “Pennies for Pajamas.” Students would be able to dress up and are encouraged to donate pennies.

SGA will have buckets at the entrance of the gym each morning for students to drop their donations in for their grade level. We will have a 6th, 7th, and 8th grade bucket/jar and the grade that donates the most money wins an advisory period on the back field!

The winner will be announced at the pep rally on Thursday! Click on the link to see the dress up days.    Wildcats Kickin’ Cancer
