Principals' Update- February 8, 2021 Conferences

Conferences
We invite you to join us for Parent/Guardian/Teacher conferences from 3-7:30pm on Thursday, February 18 and Tuesday, February 23. Sign up for conferences using the pickAtime online scheduler. When logging in, use your email and your student's 8 digit birthday in the format MM/DD/YYYY. All conferences will be done virtually using Zoom. A confirmation email containing Zoom links will be sent by pickAtime 24 hours prior to your conference. The conference scheduler opens on February 11 at noon and closes on February 16 at noon.

To prepare for conferences, please join your student in reviewing what is in the portal and have your questions ready for teachers. Remember that each conference slot is 7-minutes in length and our teachers will be sticking tightly to these times. It is our hope that your student will also join the conferences.

In advance of conferences, you are also welcome to visit our CMS website to view videos created by each of our teachers showcasing what students will learn this year. These videos can be accessed whenever it is convenient for you.
Naming the new CMS theater space
Over the course of the past couple of months, we've involved our CMS staff and students in a process to name our new theater, that involved gathering feedback several times. Based on the results of their feedback, we’ve narrowed down the choices to two final options. As families, we'd like your feedback as well. Please select your preference using this Google Form. We appreciate your feedback and are excited to finalize the name of our new theater.

PTO Staff Appreciation
It is that time of year again to show our amazing CMS teachers and staff how much we appreciate them! We will be providing a dinner, snacks, and beverages during February conferences, and we need your donations to make it happen! 
 
Thank you for your generosity. The teachers and staff appreciate these meals more than you know! And the PTO sincerely appreciates your help!
