They will operate on a normal instructional schedule that day. Please make sure your child is studying for these important exams.

All students will be taking their reading end-of-grade test on Tuesday, May 24th, and their math end-of-grade test on Thursday, May 26th. All 8th-grade students will take a science end-of-grade test on Wednesday, June 1st. Please make sure your students charge their Chromebooks for testing. They will not be allowed to have any electronics during the EOG testing sessions, including but not limited to cell phones, Apple watches, Fitbits, devices with cameras, kindles, tablets, etc.

If you plan to check your child out after exams you will need to fill out the Google Form linked on the CMS Website. Remember if your child leaves after testing and has a class in the afternoon they will be marked as an unexcused absence. This Google Form will be available from May 10th, 2022 to May 23, 2022, and must be completed by a parent. The person who comes to pick up your child will have to have a photo ID and match the name listed on the Google Form. If you have any questions please contact the school.


Next year, CMS will offer an 8th grade beginning band class. This will give students who missed the 6th grade sign-ups a second chance to join. Students who join the 8th grade beginning band class will be strongly encouraged to continue with band at Whiteville HS. In a normal year, the CMS Band performs 2 concerts, plays at school pep rallies, marches in several parades, and plays at the CMS Homecoming football game. Current 7th graders should see Mr. Sontag for a permission slip.
