Thursday, March 31 – A DAY

I would like to remind students once again that laptops may never be left unattended. This means they must be in your locker, or on your person, never in the hallway, at any time. This is a valuable piece of equipment that you are responsible for. Please see Ms. Beattie, Mr. Rosenshine, or Ms. Cline-Scott with any questions.

Students are reminded that joking about inappropriate topics and use of derogatory language will not be tolerated in the CMS community. This includes, but is not limited to, statements promoting school violence, and slurs related to race, ethnicity, or gender. Situations involving inappropriate statements related to any of these topics will be taken very seriously and result in consequences including detention or suspension from school. Please make a positive contribution to our community; refrain from saying things that may make others feel unsafe, even as a joke. Thank you.

Wish our math team good luck on their final competition TODAY at Lincoln Middle School. Our team has had a great year and hope to end it with a bang! Team- the bus will leave directly after school. BE SURE TO WEAR YOUR SHIRTS.
