7th and 8th Grade French Elective- The end of trimester 1 presents an opportunity for your 7th or 8th grader to drop French if desired.  These years are excellent ages for students to begin to "own" their own education, and engaging in a decision such as this presents a good opportunity in this area.  Please contact Jennie Hempey ( if a change in schedule is desired.  

School Board meeting this Tuesday, beginning at 6PM in the CBMS Library.  Check the School Board website for agenda and related documents.  

Picture re-take day is this Friday!   Some notes on this:
  • Anyone can be photographed on Photo Re-Take Day.
  • If you ordered, but don’t like what you received, you must return your picture packet so that the barcode can be used again.
  •  If you didn't like the first picture, or you were absent on the first day, and would like to get your photo taken, you will just need to fill out a new order form - available at the CBMS office.  
  • LifeTouch can still take orders for the original picture day for up to a year, but there is a $7.50 shipping and handling charge.  The Website is:, and you will use the information from picture day...ID Number and Access code will be needed. 
  • If anyone has any issues LifeTouch is happy to help solve them. The LifeTouch office can be reached at 229-0299, and you should ask for Leslie or Rebecca.
