CMS Principal Thanks Community for Successful Event

The annual MBS & CMS Back-to-School Barbecue (announced on August 23) was a great opportunity for students, parents, staff, and administrators alike to kick off the new school year.

Dawn Gruss, CMS’s new principal, expresses her appreciation not only to the cafeteria staff who prepared the meal but also to everyone who attended. The barbecue was fun for the students, and it served as an opportunity for community building and collaboration—which is important as we set about implementing new programs and initiatives for the middle school.

Ms. Gruss is grateful for the show of community support, and she looks forward to future opportunities for community collaboration and involvement in her efforts to maintain an open-door policy and create an environment in which people feel welcome to offer their thoughts.

As a friendly reminder, CMS’s SMART-Start Orientation—the first day of school for sixth graders as well as new seventh and eight graders—will be on August 30. The school day begins at 7:30 a.m., and the school day ends at 2:06 p.m.
