Agenda Sales are Online Only 

Students in Grades 1-5 are strongly encouraged to purchase a school agenda. It is an invaluable tool used by students to keep track of assignments and by parents and teachers for communication. This year, agendas are available for purchase online only.  They will be available online beginning Wednesday, Aug. 20. The cost is $7.69 (your statement will reflect an amount of $8, which includes a transaction fee collected by the hosting site, not J.V. Washam or CMS). To place your order, click on the “Online School Payments/OSP” link located on the left. IMPORTANT: If you have multiple students, please make sure that your order each agenda under the appropriate teacher’s name. This will ensure prompt delivery.

Students, parents and community members are invited to meet the new principal, Paula Rao, on Thursday, Aug. 14, from 3-4 p.m. and 6-7 p.m. in the Media Center. Both sessions will be identical and feature a brief presentation and opportunity to ask questions.
