Great to see the number of bike riders pedaling to/from school these days!  A friendly reminder that helmets are required when biking on the CBMS campus.  Thanks for reminding your bike to wear his/her helmet.

Date change- Walk/Bike to school day- the new date is Tuesday, June 5th.  7AM at Rusty Parker Park.

Middle School Volleyball Club for 5th-8th graders​ - Volleyball is the 4th most popular sport in the world and is also the most popular girls high school sport in the United States. It is so popular that many high schools in Vermont are starting to add boys teams, too. Mark your calendars for May 8th from 5-7 PM for the first meeting of the CBMS Volleyball Club. We will have a short organizational meeting for parents and students at the first session, then get on with the fun! All interested HUUSD Middle School boys and girls, grade 5-8, are invited. We also invite parents with volleyball experience to attend. The club will meet every Tuesday from May 8th until the end of the school year, from 5-7pm. Harwood varsity coach David Stapleton, along with varsity players and experienced parents, will focus on teaching the fundamental skills and rules of the game. We also hope to continue to meet in the fall/winter, and to eventually assemble a team to participate in the Chittenden County Middle School March Madness Volleyball League in March/April 2019. Students interested in playing and experienced parents interested in volunteering can contact Dona Culver at
