April 27

38 school days left in the 13-14 school year, which is over 21% of the total school days.  Thanks in advance for helping to motivate your child to keep his/her "learning nose to the learning grindstone" straight through June 19th!

14-15 School Calendar- the finalized calendar can be accessed by clicking here.  

EXTENDED!  PTO Plant Sale has been extended due to the extended winter weather!  All orders are due in by Wednesday, April 30th.  Click here to access the order form.  Take a peek at the offerings.

Limited spots left!  Program for MS Boys in grades 5-8 - BC/BS of Vermont is proud to announce that Velocity is coming to CBMS once again this Spring! The goals of the program are:
  • To encourage a healthy, active lifestyle for Middle School boys.
  • To give boys an opportunity to try new fitness activities in a non-competitive, boys-only setting. 
  • To help boys build confidence and communication skills, as they bond with mentors and other participants. 
By creating six different activity modules, each with a corresponding lesson, we will give boys a chance to try out an activity without making a major commitment to it. Past activities include mountain biking, break-dancing, fencing, ropes course adventures, frisbee golf, orienteering, hiking and we’re always looking for new activities.  It is our goal to help each boy find at least one activity he really enjoys, and continue with it, remaining active in the future.
The program will run on Thursdays from 2:30-4:30, beginning on May 1st with a session on break dancing. The program costs $60 per child, and some scholarship money may be available upon request.  Checks should be made to "Velocity BCBSVT".  The permission form can be found by clicking here, and we are limited to 8 participants in this program- the first 8 filled out permission forms we receive in the CBMS office take those spots!  Contact Dan Gratton, the CBMS Velocity coordinator, to learn more - or 244-6100 x122.
