Students will be taking their second nine-week benchmark tests for reading, math, science, and social studies this week. They will take one benchmark each day of the week. Please make sure that your child gets plenty of rest and eats a good breakfast at home or here at school. It is important that students give their best effort on these assessments because the results are used to determine intervention and enrichment groups.

Students, please remember to be in compliance with the WCS dress code policy every day of school. In order to be in compliance, students can wear khaki, navy, or black dress pants, shorts, skorts, jumpers, and dresses. Students may wear a hoodie but they are not allowed to wear their hood on their head in the school building. Make sure to wear a uniform shirt under your hoodie. The approved shirt colors are red, black, white, yellow, and royal blue. Also, as a reminder slides and bedroom shoes are not allowed. We will be having random dress code checks and repeated dress code infractions may result in suspension from school. The goal is for the students to represent themselves and CMS in a positive manner!
