Congratulations to our amazing first grade teacher, Mr. Donovan! He was one of only six K-5 teachers honored by the CMS North East Learning Community for his dedication and resiliency to teaching literacy amidst the Covid-19 Pandemic. Mr. Donovan's class of students will each be gifted a book, and Mr. Donovan himself was gifted a monetary award through Donor's Choose to purchase items for his classroom. The staff, teachers, and students at DJV are so grateful to have Mr. Donovan as part of our school family!
Congratulations to one of our very own students for being recognized in the NASA Space Place Art Challenge!
Gabby, a 6 year old first grade student, created a painting based on her interpretation of the Sentinel-6 Michael Freilich launch. The satellite will study global warming and Earth's rising sea levels.
CMS needs to know whether you will attend school in-person or via the Full Remote Academy next semester.
Please complete this Transportation Enrollment Form before Monday, November 30 to let CMS know how your student will attend school during second semester – either in-person or remote – and if your student needs CMS yellow bus transportation.
Selections made via this survey are effective beginning January 5, 2021 and will remain in effect for the remainder of the 2020-21 school year.
Transportation Enrollment for Second Semester:
Families must inform the district about students' transportation needs for the second semester. An enrollment form is posted on the CMS website and will be posted on school websites. Families will need their student ID number to complete the Transportation Enrollment Form.
The transportation choice will last throughout the second semester and until the end of the 2020-2021 school year.
CMS needs to know the transportation needs for all students – grades pre-K – 12th grade whose families intend for them to attend school in-person during the second semester.
Specific note for current in-person Pre-K through 5th grade learners:
o If your child has not ridden the bus as of November 20, 2020, and the transportation enrollment is not completed, we will remove your child's name from the bus roster and they will not receive a bus stop assignment for the second semester.
o If your child does need transportation for second semester, you MUST complete the enrollment form indicating the need for transportation.
Beginning November 12th, 2020, CMS will be launching ZoomEDU. Please click on the link, or read below for more information.
