Indiana Math Increases Rigor
The CMS math teachers have been some of the hardest working teachers in the district over the past few weeks. Since school has started they have all been trained on an assessment tool called IXL.com, attended training on a new formative assessment which will serve as an ISTEP predictor called INSPECT, spent a day and half with our district math and science expert Mrs. White, and spent a day attending a state department of education sponsored training on the new "Process Standards".

FINAL Parent Engagement Event
We would like to thank all of the parents who attended one of our previous Parent Engagement Events. We hope you found the new relaxed and informal format to be welcoming, inviting, and more conducive to developing a positive relationship with the CMS staff! We believe that if we are transparent in all that we do and develop personal relationships with our parents that we will be able to more effectively impact student lives in a positive way. Please know that we will be happy to meet with you at any time during the year. All you have to do is call or email and we will get something scheduled. Or, if you just want to drop by and chat, please do that, too!
Our final scheduled parent engagement opportunity is coming up on Friday, September 2nd. FREE coffees and smoothies will be served up by "A Cup Above" catering service in the CMS Main Entry from 6:30-7:45 a.m. Drop by for your favorite morning beverage and hang out a little with our teachers! We hope to see you there!
