Wall Plaque Fundraiser

Support our 2022-2023 Wall Plaque Fundraiser!
Wall plaques are a great way to support CMCS to make up the financial deficit that we, as a charter school, experience. On average, we only receive 75-80% of funding that other district schools receive. For a $1,000 donation, you will receive many perks -- the most important one being the support of our students and teachers. Payment plans are available.
Our goal is 100 plaques!

Quarter 1 Enrichment

We are excited that Enrichment starts this week! Remember to park and walk up to the center courtyard gates with your CMCS-issued car signs at 4:30pm to pick up your students. Do not block the third (outside lane) during enrichment pick-up.

Anniversary of Maria Montessori's 152nd Birthday

August 31, 2022 marks the 152nd anniversary of the birth of Maria Montessori. Dr. Montessori was ahead of her time in her research, her educational approach, and pioneering work for social reform. The work of Dr. Montessori continues to motivate people to change the world for the better and has impacted the lives of children and teachers for more than 110 years. For more information about this celebration and Dr. Maria Montessori's life, check out this timeline of her life.

Student Council

We had a huge interest in our Student Council. Elections will be held on Thursday, September 1st. Good luck to all the candidates!

Cougar Card Kick Off!

Our annual Cougar Card campaign kicks off on Thursday, September 1st!
We are digital again this year! More information to come in our next Helping Hands post!

This is the last call for businesses to be added to our card for the kick off!

We can still add businesses throughout the year but advertising them at the start is more FUN!
If you want to be added, please email ASAP.
