March 28

The Court Jesters Basketball Team is coming to CBMS on Saturday, April 5th, courtesy of our PTO!  Game tickets can be purchased online at this link

E-Waste Drive, sponsored by the CMBS Sustainability Program, is happening at the W'bury LEAP Fair on April 5th.  For more information, click here.

Grades 7/8 Track and Field- Change of start date- due to the snow, practices will now begin at Harwood on Monday, April 7th.

PTO Plant Sale- All orders are due by Monday, April 14.  Click here to access the order form.  Take a peek at the offerings.

8th Grade Parents - Important Information regarding Course Registration for Incoming 9th Graders - As registration is in full swing, I would like to remind all parents that the student MUST be present at their course registration appointment. If the student is not present, I will need to reschedule the appointment for a time the student can be present. I do not have much extra time in between now and the close of registration (April 10th), so please be aware.  Still, the course registration appointments are only the first step in building a schedule for each student for next year. If a parent or guardian cannot attend, please know it is not a problem. I can answer questions or concerns once schedules are printed at the end of May. Students will also have opportunities to change their schedule if it does not fit their need.  Lastly, please know that all course registration appointments for HUMS students are in the School Counseling office at the High School. It is located to the right once you walk in the front doors of the High School. All course registration appointments for CBMS will be at CBMS.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding this, please let me know.

Thank you,
Tara Cariano-

The next Grades 7/8 dance, sponsored by HUMS, is scheduled for Friday, April 11th from 7:30 -9:30 PM at the Waterbury Ice Center. Admission is $5.00 and if students need to rent skates there is an additional $2.00 fee. The Ice Center will also open the concession stand .

CROSSETT BROOK & THATCHER BROOK ODYSSEY OF THE MIND TEAMS TAKE TOP HONORS AT THE VERMONT STATE OM TOURNAMENT!  Six teams of local students in grades two through seven took top honors at the Vermont State Odyssey of the Mind tournament last Saturday at Champlain Valley Union High School.

First place went to a Crossett Brook Middle School team of sixth- and seventh-grade boys; another first-place trophy went to a team of fourth- and fifth-grade girls from Thatcher Brook Primary School, Crossett Brook and Bishop Marshall. Three teams took second place in their categories: a group of seventh-grade girls at CBMS, a team of fifth- and sixth-grade girls at CBMS and a team of third-grade boys from TBPS who also won a special creativity award for their humorous depiction of France’s King Louis XIV. A first-year team of second- and third-grade TBPS girls won third place.

In all 39 local students (with 10 parent- volunteer coaches) took part in this year’s Odyssey competition. The teams finishing in first and second place all qualify to attend OM World Finals to be held in late May at Iowa State University in Ames, Iowa.

Odyssey of the Mind is an extra-curricular creative problem-solving competition for students from kindergarten through college. In the fall, teams choose from a list of problems to solve and then work in their free time on their solution which they present at the state contest. Winners qualify to compete at World Finals along with teams from all over the U.S. and at least a dozen other countries.

The OM teams will have several fundraising efforts in the coming weeks to help defray costs for the World Finals trip. Please support them if you can. Organizing for next year's OM teams will happen in the fall.
