Share Photos for the Yearbook!

We wanted to let you know about the image sharing option that is available to you for this year's yearbook.  We would love for you to share photos of your children on their first day of school at CMS, dressed up for spirit days, working from home, posing with their school projects, and other instances where they are participating in school related activities.  We hope to utilize these images in the yearbook as we did in the spring.  You will find instructions of how and where to upload photos in the attachment below.

Fall 2020 Newsletter

Schools are places that help students make sense of the world around them. Talking to students about issues like racism and protest can be difficult even in the best of times when we are actually with our students and not just looking at them through screens. Nonetheless, these are important conversations and important times. Should you wish, here are a few resources to assist in speaking with your children about these issues:


NASP – National Association of School Psychologists

Chicago Public Schools – Say Their Names

2020 Fall Clothing Store is now closed.

All ordered items will be delivered directly to students at school about four weeks after the closing of the store. Our goal is to have the clothing items delivered before Thanksgiving. If you are a fully remote student, you will be emailed when your order has arrived and you will be able to pick it up at the front of the school.
