Before a Chromebook can be issued to a student, a parent or guardian must attend the Roll Out session with their student at CMS, view the video, take a short quiz with your child, and sign the consent forms. Additional insurance coverage can be purchased for $20 and is recommended. We look forward to seeing you at CMS on Tuesday, September 12th for the 6th grade 1:World Chromebook Roll Out!

How To Help Your Student

  • Check your student's agenda - this is where they write what they do in classes and what their homework is
  • Check teacher websites - activities, homework, quizzes and tests are listed for the week
  • Check Parent Vue - This gives you access to your student's grades. If you are unable to access Parent Vue, please contact the office.
  • Practice - Even if there is no homework, practicing multiplication facts, reading, answering questions and reviewing notes are an excellent way to keep those skills up.

 If you haven't turned in your green email/contact sheet to me, please be sure to do it soon!!

Black Home folders are now in the front of binders. Use these for homework, letters home and things that need to be returned.
