Save the Date! Write-A-Check Oct 29 - Nov 9
Write-A-Check is one of our biggest fundraisers of the year and it can only be successful if everyone takes part! Even though we have a new building- we still have items that the school needs to purchase to make certain that our kids have the best learning experience! Items on this year’s wish list include:
School programs and presentations (visiting authors, Red Ribbon week, anti-bullying campaigns, etc.)
Gifts to school (spring & fall teacher/classroom gifts, technology)
Club support/special ed/Practical Academics
Flowers for our raised flower beds/garden program
Equipment for our science labs
Microwaves for the cafeteria (replaced often with 1000+ students)
Play equipment for lunch
New cameras for the yearbook staff
Maps for social studies
Watch for more details in the coming weeks!
7th Grade Field Trip: A Christmas Carol - Thurs. Dec 6
Our 7th Grade Educators are excited to announce this year’s Fall Field Trip for all of 7th Grade. As we have done the past two years in 7th grade, we will be traveling to the Wyly Theater, a part of the Dallas Performing Arts Center, to enjoy an incredible production of the Charles Dickens classic tale of generosity and kindness, A Christmas Carol. It’s an incredible production of this beloved story, and the students and staff have loved the experience every year!
The trip will take place on Thursday, December 6. The cost per child is $23 and learners should dress in dressy/business/formal attire. Bring a sack lunch that does not need to be heated up. Medications and other health needs will be managed/distributed by an approved CMSW Staff Member serving as a chaperone. Phones, backpacks, and iPads will not be needed for this day of school. Please leave them at home. Parent Chaperones may be needed. In the event that we do need parent chaperones, the sign-up list will be distributed through PTO.
Please contact your child’s Language Arts educator for any specific questions about the trip. Thank you!
