MIDDLE SCHOOL 2018-2019 YEARBOOKS!!!

DIGITAL STOREFRONT: https://calmsyb.picaboo.com/ 

The 2018-2019 CALMS Yearbook is now available to order. The final day to order is Monday, April 15, 2019, at which point the digital storefront will be closed.

The Yearbooks will not be ready until after May 10, 2019. Yearbooks will be distributed in your child's connect class. 

When ordering, please note that you must include the last name of your child's Connect (Homeroom) teacher. For 7th grade students, you must include the full name of Mr. or Mrs. Farmer (e.g. Kasey Farmer or Kyle Farmer). This will help to prevent any delays when yearbooks are distributed. It is highly recommended that you save and/or print the digital receipt for your personal records until your child receives their yearbook. Although we do not anticipate any delivery conflicts, this will help in the event of any issues.

Thank you for your support of CALMS and feel free to contact me with any questions via awilkerson@caschools.us (Andrew Wilkerson, Yearbook Sponsor).

8TH GRADE CROSSOVER CEREMONY - May 29, 2019, 6:30 p.m.

Dear Parents of Eighth Grade Students,

Proverbs 22:6 “Train up your child in the way he should go, even when he is old he will not depart from it.”

What a powerful reminder of our responsibility when it comes to our children. It has been a pleasure serving with you in the educational as well as spiritual growth of your student(s). It is difficult to believe that their middle school experience is coming to a close. This letter is to inform you of two important items specific to the close of eighth grade.

First, as you know, the Washington, D.C. trip is scheduled for Saturday, April 13 – Wednesday, April 17. Students making the trip will not be attending school on Thursday, April 18, and Friday, April 19. Students who do not travel on the trip are expected to be at school that week (with the exception of Good Friday, April 19) for a virtual Washington, D.C. experience and project.

Second, let me share with you information concerning Eighth Grade Crossover. Crossover is the culminating event of middle school. This day symbolizes the end of the middle school years and the crossing over into high school. We are excited to provide an opportunity to celebrate this special day. One important element to help make this day special relates to the event’s dress code. Below you will find some general information about the ceremony along with the expected dress for the event. 

Parents and students will receive a Crossover Commitment Form at the end of April which must be signed in order to participate. PLEASE NOTE: Students DO NOT have school this day (May 29). Their last day will be Tuesday, May 28.
