Good morning everyone! Today is Tuesday and HS students are in elective classes today.
In a “normal” school year, we would be having parent teacher conferences this week. Students, parents and guardians, if you would like to meet with any teachers about progress so far this school year, please reach out via email and schedule an individual appointment. As always, we want to support you all in every way we can, and communication is key.
Yearbook club would like to remind all high schoolers to check your email for new
weekly surveys and photo requests to potentially win a prize! The more you enter,
the better your chances of winning! The next yearbook drawing prize winner will be
drawn this afternoon and announced tomorrow morning. Also, don't forget that
Wednesday is the last day to pre-order your yearbook for this preorder window. The
next pre-order window will be in February. Pre-order your yearbook now to reserve
This Thursday is Thanksgiving. This is a time of gratitude: You can show your
gratitude in many ways. This is a great time to email a teacher, counselor or staff
member and let them know that you appreciate all they are doing to help you do
well in school.
Since you will have four days off this week - please take time to look over Google
Classroom, Skyward, Amplify and other educational programs you are using to
ensure that you are completing your assignments and also getting caught up with
missing work. Remember that teachers will only have office hours this week will be
less, so make sure to stop by and get that extra support.
CMHS Dad Joke of the Day: (Thanks to Mrs. Socha for this one)
Words of Wisdom:
This is Mr. Smith with a few words of wisdom.
How many times have you heard these words, "Don't forget to brush your teeth. Did you wash your hands? Is that a clean shirt?"
So what's the big deal about being clean? What difference does it make? Well, let's think about that.
Don't you feel better when you're clean and your hair is combed and your teeth are brushed? And when you feel better about yourself, have you noticed that you do better at school . . . that you have more fun with your friends?
Being the best you can be may mean cleaning up your act in more ways than one. Someone once said:
A pure heart is a good thing, and so is a clean shirt. *
There could be times when it's hard to come to school with a clean shirt and clean hands. We understand, and if you need help, just ask.
With something to think about, this is Mr. Smith. Make it a great day . . . or not. The choice is yours.
