Feb 20

Lots of Spirit at CBMS this week, including "Red, White, and Blue" day on Tuesday (clothes to match the colors), "Summer Wear" day on Wednesday (no bathing suits, please!), and "Pajama Day" on Thursday!  Friday is Winter Carnival Day, and we will definitely be going skating (although the rain in the forecast may force other events inside).  Send your child into school on Friday with skates or $3 for skate rentals, and weather-appropriate clothing.  GO COUGARS!

Spring Parent Conferences are coming on Wednesday, March 14th and Thursday, March 15th, after school and into the evening each day. Sign-ups will be again done via the Internet, beginning Saturday, March 3rd through Saturday March 10th.  The link to sign up for conferences can be found on the CBMS Homepage.

CBMS Yearbook Notes
  • We want your photos! To make it easy to send them to us, we’ve created a link to a Photo Dropbox on the CBMS website, located right under the link to order your yearbook. Just click on it, enter password “cougars” and remember to name the photofile so that we don’t see just a camera file name. We’ve discovered that if Dropbox sees any photo files with the same name, it will replace that photo with the latest photo.
  • If you have many photos to pass to us, consider bringing the memory card to Tom Matt, yearbook advisor, and he will upload it and return it the next day.
  • Please order your yearbook soon as Friday, 2/24 is the last day to order a yearbook at the $25/each price. After Friday, the price will be $30/each.
  • When ordering your own yearbook, we are also offering the option to purchase an additional yearbook to donate to Irene flood victims; we’ve made it easy with a box to check on either the online or paper form.

Looking for Laptops- We are looking to obtain laptops for the Lego robotics enrichment activities at both CBMS and TBPS.  Laptops will allow the robotics program to be independent of the school network and computers, which do not easily support the robotics software. Perhaps you or your business recently upgraded a laptop and you were wondering what to do with your old one. We can use most any working windows based laptop with an AC adaptor. Laptops with your contact information can be dropped off at either CBMS or TBPS main offices to the attention of Mike Maloney. Or you can contact Mike Maloney ( 244-7720) to arrange pick up. Please consider donating an unused but, working laptop. Thank you!
