CMS Project-based Beautification Day Engages Active Learning!

Rain or shine, the CMS football team and community showed out to support the Third Annual CMS Beautification Day, Saturday, August 9th. Over twenty-five football players came to CMS at 7 a.m. on Saturday morning. Coach Dudley and Coach Fortune spoke to their players first in the gym about the importance of community service and setting a positive example with EAGLE PRIDE. Mr. Carter, agriculture teacher, was also on hand to show the students the correct way to spray for pesticides around the grounds. The custodians also secured garden utensils, wheelbarrows, and trash cans from his room for this event.  Mr. Fortune, one of the CMS coaches, has a lot of experience with ground maintenance and was able to show our young men the correct way to weed, rake, spread mulch, plant flowers, and pull grass. Mrs. Rachanow, Mrs. Manning, upcoming CMS students, and other community support repainted the yellow curb and gave the Autism classroom a “fresh look” inside the building. Ms. Carter, parents, and CMS Staff showed several of the players how to repaint five of the green poles for the DMV signs.  She also made sure each of our football players were fed at lunch. Our Director of Maintenance, Geoffrey Honan, provided us with mulch, paint, new rope for the flag, and garden utensils. This project-based learning activity empowered our CMS student leaders to demonstrate their understanding through asking questions, thinking creatively on how to make the CMS grounds look good, and connecting real world application to the process. We are proud of everyone who took a part in helping to beautify CMS. Please feel free to volunteer your talents by calling the school.

EAGLE PRIDE!
Angela Wright, CMS Principal
