CMS Goes to AP Hill for Earth Day

On Thursday April 18, the seventh and eighth graders took a trip over to Earth Day at AP Hill Military Base.  The students enjoyed environmental exhibits, a nature trail and displays of military vehicles.  I know that several students got to dress in bomb squad gear, and tour inside military helicopters.  The environmental exhibits were wonderful, giving away trees for the students to plant and peaking  their curiosity about the world around them.  Thank you AP Hill for a fantastic day.

Calendar Changes

During the 2012-2013 school year nine days have been missed due to inclement weather and there have been two 2-hour delays.  Two of the missed days have been made up.
At the School Board meeting last night, the Board approved extending the school year by two and a half days and making Friday, June 14 a full day of school.  With the extension, the last day of school will be an early dismissal day for students on Wednesday, June 19.  “Bank time” will be used for the remaining four days.  With these changes, teacher workdays and professional development will be scheduled for the afternoon of June 19 and on June 20-21.  The graduation date of June 7 will not change.
