Principal’s Update #13 – January 8, 2016

Dear CMS Families,

Welcome Back! I hope that everyone had a relaxing and fun break. Students got right back in the groove this week. It is good to be back at school.

January House Newsletters are linked at the bottom of this update.

Parent Website Permission

Parents of students in grades 6 and 7, we continue have a number of families who have not returned the permission form for children to use websites we visit. Starting on Monday, January 11 students who do not have permission will not be allowed to use their computers to visit these sites while in school. I am once again posting the link for the online version of the form and paper copies have been made available to students who have missing permissions numerous times in the past weeks. If you have already filled this out, thank you. if not please fill out the form right away. Parent Website Permission form

Busses from Peabody to Sanborn

This past week students traveling on busses from Peabody to Sanborn began traveling on assigned busses. We assigned students to busses for a number of reasons. We expect to solve a few issues with assigned busses – overcrowding and high noise levels on some busses, previously and we could not help parents looking to pick up their children from school who missed them leaving the building. The transition to the new system has gone very smoothly. Students continue to “reshuffle” to their proper busses when they arrive at Sanborn.

A.L.I.C.E. assemblies

I am linking the ALICE assembly letter to this update, in case you did not see the email we sent out earlier in the week. This is in regard to assemblies that will be occurring next week for students in grades 6 and 7 as well as new 8th graders. You may refer to the linked letter for further information.

No School for students – January 15

Recess and the winter months

Remember to have your children dress for cold weather if they intend on going outside for recess.

Lynne’s Return and A Principal’s Coffee

I have been in contact with Lynne multiple times this week. She is excited to return and will be back at her desk on Monday. We are rescheduling the upcoming Principal’s Coffee. It is newly scheduled for January 21 at 9:30 in the Peabody Forum. This delay will give Lynne a chance to fully come up to speed with everything that has been happening at CMS.
