Fourth quarter is underway and will go faster than the blink of an eye! There is so much to be done to make sure that our students are ready to close out the school year strong. Attendance at school is extremely important. Tardy students and students leaving early are missing key instructional opportunities. Please be sure that your students are getting to school prior to 8:10am so that they can take advantage of a full instructional day.

There have been changes made that are important for parents to know! The Year Round calendar has come to an end. Students will end this year and will not return to school until August 26th. Therefore, we are on the same calendar as everyone else in CMS.

We have also moved to the same schedule as other CMS schools as far as promotion activities are concerned. There will only be a promotion ceremony for the termination year at Thomasboro, which is 8th grade. Teachers will celebrate with all other grade levels; however, we will not have an official ceremony as it created safety hazards with parking as well as within the school with visitors.

There are key dates coming up as follows:

May 1st – Teacher Workday

May 10th- Progress reports for 4th quarter go home

May 10th- Muffins for Mom

May 15th- SLT meeting 4pm media center
