Join CMS Students in a Day of Silence

On April 17, join Craig and Malala Yousafzai by being silent for a cause you care about!
Malala’s passion for education and refusal to back down has inspired millions around the world includingSelena GomezOrlando BloomJennifer HudsonSeth RoganJ. ColeHannah SimoneClive Owen,Edward NortonJoe JonasMartin SheenReggie WattsBig Sean and Evanna Lynch.
“On April 17, I will be silent to support those around the world who are denied their rights, denied an education and denied a voice to speak out,” declared Malala. “We all have the right to be heard.  By being silent, I hope the world will listen to the silenced voices of girls who want to go to school, and young people around the world who are struggling for equality.”
At lunch on Thursday Ms. Quick and her Leadership students are going to take a picture of all of the students and teachers who are participating in the event!

CMS Students Gear Up for Testing


This year CMS students will take the Smarter Balanced field test assessment.  The Smarter Balanced practice run of assessments aligned to the Common Core in English language arts (ELA) and mathematics consists of two parts. The Field Test is a practice run of the assessment system that helps ensure that questions are accurate and fair for all students.  It also gives teachers and schools a chance to gauge their readiness in advance of the first operational assessment in spring 2015. Due to the computer component of the assessment, students will be on a modified testing schedule (see calendar below). Start and end times of the school day will remain the same, but students will only go to three classes a day for a longer block period.

The week of April 15th students will attend the following classes:
Monday (all 6 periods)
Tuesday: HR, Per 2, Break, Per. 4, Lunch, Per. 6
Wednesday: Per. 1, Break, Per. 3, Lunch, Per. 5
Thursday: HR, Per 2, Break, Per. 4, Lunch, Per. 6
Friday: HR, Per 1, Break, Per. 3, Lunch, Per.5                                                     

5th and 8th graders will state take the CST assessment in Science on May 6th (part I) and May 8th (part II). Please have your child arrive to school on time daily, ready to test! If you have additional questions about the assessment calendar, please fill free to contact the office.

Thank you for your support.
