#CMMUNITY
Congratulations to our CMM Family!!!  School Performance Scores were released by the state this week, and we are once again the TOP MIDDLE SCHOOL in the state Louisiana. To achieve this takes a great deal of hard work from our students, teachers, staff, and parents!!! Way to go Stallions!!!

Our Veterans' Day Assembly today was fantastic!!!  A big thank you to Mrs. Murchison for organizing everything.  Also, thank you to Mr. Patterson for a wonderful speech.  Mrs. Fanning and Ms. Dowd did a great job with the music.  

We are only 650 cans away from our goal of 3,900 for the Canned Food Drive, and we have two days left for donations!!!  Let's all bring some cans Monday to help the Food Bank of Northwest Louisiana--and to make sure Mrs. DeBusk kisses the pig!!!

Pegasus Society--We are in the process of collecting donations for our Pegasus Society.  I know all of you have received your letter.  Please consider donating by the end of November.  We would like to order our new technology in December--this will make sure we have everything in our classrooms by January.

Instructional time is very important to us at CMM. To ensure that classes are not interrupted, we do not call students to pick up lunches, notebooks, gym uniforms, supplies, projects, etc.  The students must check between classes to see if a parent has dropped something off.  We have made all of our students aware of this policy for the last six weeks, and it is printed in our handbook at the front of the student planner.   If you have any questions about this policy, please contact me--not our secretaries.  : )

Do you have a photo you think would be great for the yearbook? Please join the Google Classroom for Yearbook Photos with the code 167r7z to upload your photos. Please be sure to say who is in the photo, what event is taking place, & the date of the event. Thanks so much for helping our staff create the best yearbook ever!
