    5th Grade Visits :  If your student currently attends one of our feeder elementary schools (Bishop, Fairwood, Lakewood, San Miguel), your student's 5th grade class will be visiting CMS during the school day for a tour, presentation, and performances by our elective programs. This event has been cancelled due to COVID-19. 
    5th Grade Parent Orientation (March 26th, 2020 @ 6pm. This event has been rescheduled to May 7, 2020):  This parent orientation will give you a general overview of CMS programs and logistics, including math placement information and what to expect for the middle school transition. 
    Residency Verification Day (6th only) - Aug. 14th

    Residency Verification is required for all incoming 6th grade students.

     There are only two exceptions to this process for 6th graders. You do NOT need to come to Residency Verification if:

    • You are new to the district this year and have already completed residency verification
    • You have a shared housing situation in which your name is not listed on bills or rental agreements. In this case, you must go to the District Office to complete or renew your Residency Affidavit. These must be renewed yearly.

    If you are an incoming 6th-grade student or are new to CMS, please join us on Friday, Aug. 16th from 8am to noon for an orientation to CMS! Our 8th-grade WEB leaders and advisors will be leading students in fun activities with the purpose of helping you to make new friends and learn all about CMS!
