May 30

Step-Up Day is next Friday, June 6th.  A couple of points of note on this:

  • Placement letters for next year's 5th and 7th graders will be mailed out on Monday, and students will "step up" at CBMS from 9:30-11:00 on Friday.  Current 4th graders will come over to CBMS at 9, and will stay for lunch and depart at 11:30 back to TBPS.
  • On Friday, 8th graders should arrive directly to HUHS by 8AM, either via bus or car.  They can purchase lunch tickets for that day at the CBMS office next week, and the amount will simply be billed to their normal lunch account. On the menu is Stromboli, Fresh Vegetable or Ham, Salami, Pepperoni and Cheese, Fresh Fruit and Tossed Salad 
  • 8th graders will be bussed back to CBMS at 2PM that day, and will depart from CBMS as normal.

Titan IDU food drive. The Duxbury Elf Shelf needs our help. So from Monday, June 2nd, to Tuesday June 10th, there is a food drive. Make sure you bring things into you AG. The AG with the most food gets a cupcake and brownie party. The party will be the following week on the 17th which is a Friday. The acceptable items are: non-perishable items, like canned fruits and veggies, toilet paper, sugar, flour, paper towels, peanut butter, and jelly. Bring in the food! For more information contact Libby Brusa.

Short shorts! It is clear that as the temperature goes up so do the hemlines of the shorts worn by many of the CBMS girls.  Think about how clothes can be a distraction to learning, and thanks for helping to keep distractions around clothing to a minimum!

The sun is getting warmer and the days longer.  As everyone is making their summer plans the CBMS PTO is trying to ensure we have an active PTO for the upcoming year.  We are trying to make plans for the new year but we need your help.  We are still looking for board members!  It is vital that we have at least one more member or we lose our 501C3 status.  We are making changes to the PTO and we will only be doing 1 fundraiser in the upcoming year.    This will dramatically decrease the time commitment and will free us up to organize Fun Nights, the basketball tournament for 5th and 6th grade, after-school programs and other enrichment and educational events.  Currently we have some interest in the Secretary position and I would like to remain in the Treasury position :)  We are currently in need of a President and Vice President position.  If you have any interest and would like to hear more about the positions please feel free to reach out to Carrie Dessureau (outgoing President) at, Gayle Moskowitz (outgoing Vice President) at or Missy Semprebon (current treasurer) at 373-4546 or  Thank you for all your help this year and am looking forward to another great year with the CBMS PTO!

We have a reported case of chicken pox in TBPS.  Chicken pox is a viral disease that is very contagious. Symptoms may begin as headache, fatigue and muscle aches progressing to a fever as the rash begins to develop. If your child has had chicken pox, they may not return to school until all spots have crusted over. If your child has not been vaccinated against this disease, you may consider speaking with your child's physician for recommendations. Follow this link to the CDC for additional information about chickenpox.
