If you haven't already done so, please stop by the CCMS office to sign the required user agreement. Don't let your kiddo get left behind in the 20th Century!
Stuff the Bus is a Success!
Just a big THANK YOU to everyone who helped us STUFF THE BUS! We are so proud of our students. In their teams, they brought in nearly 1,000 items. In particular, Talley Joyce's 7th grade team brought in 275 items, winning a pizza party on the last day before Christmas break.
Combined with community donations (special thanks to Par 4, Myers Funeral Home, and Sugar Grove CP Church), we were able to give well over 3,000 items (ranging from clothes, shoes, toys, toiletries, canned goods, and non-perishables to name a few) to Community Christmas.
CCMS is planning on making STUFF the BUS an annual event!

STUFF THE BUS
Our 4-H Club is sponsoring STUFF THE BUS on Thursday, Dec. 15, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
We will have a bus parked in the back parking lot, and students and the community can bring items for Community Christmas and fill the bus. CCHS is invited to participate with us. While all types of items will be accepted (canned goods, toys, clothing, etc.), the CCMS 4-H Club is targeting gifts for teens and tweens, as those are the least donated, according to organizers.
The TESTING TEAM that brings in the most items will win a PIZZA PARTY. 4-H members will be working in shifts to take collections and record testing team donations. Please help us spread the word! We are hoping to make it an annual tradition to support Community Christmas.
Winter iReady Testing
It is that time again. Students will be completing iReady testing from Monday, November 28 until Tuesday, December 17. Please remind your student to bring their headphones as they are needed to complete their testing.
