School Announcements

  • Mr. Watson's CMS Weekly Update

     Good Afternoon Parents and Students,


    This is your principal, Mr. Watson, and I hope you are enjoying your weekend.


    This week students will be taking the TN Ready test. Our testing will be taking place everyday from 8:30 am to 11:15 am. If you can make sure to schedule appointments in the afternoon, then that would be helpful. Parents, please talk to your child about putting forth their best effort. Also parents make sure your child gets a good night’s sleep, eats a small breakfast or snack, and make sure they are at school on time.


    On Monday, April 23rd there is a mandatory Eighth Grade NY Trip Meeting at 5:30pm in the Cafeteria. During this meeting parents will fill out medical documentation, review the itinerary again, and meet with their child’s chaperone. Once again this meeting is for the Eighth grade students that are going on the NY Trip and their parents.


    Have a great week and Go Hornets!



    Mr. Watson
