    Spring Newsletter


    Dear Parents and CMS family members,

    As we begin our final quarter, (my favorite time of the school year) we celebrate our students and staff for their successes!

    • Congratulations to our Science Olympiad students; Alicia Rhinehart, Daniel Saunders, Shiyenne Muentes, Marcin Plaza, Aanya Bhandari, Jessalyn Kelly, Evan Turner, Connor Maquet, and Adela Wiercioch. These students will be moving forward to the state competitions.  Thank you to their teacher sponsors, Mrs. Lee and Mrs. Rossie. 
    • Congratulations to Andre Riad. Andre won the state level Reflection Literature Competition.  He placed 1st out of 435 entries.
    • Congratulations to our 2019 All State chorus led by Mrs. Moss. The following students were chosen for All State; Ioanna Andrianou, Avery DePadua, Katie Horton, Kaitlyn Moss, Troy Ochoa Rowland, Kaelyn Siller and Peyton Tetterton.
    • Congratulations to our Science Fair winners led by Ms. Himmel; Marcin Plaza, Camilo Lertora, Devan Ortega, Christian Strayer, Aanya Bhandari, Isaac Green, Jordan Turner, and Kali Suminski.
    • Congratulations to the following art students whose work will be on display at the Student Exhibition in St. Pete; Lauren Hickey, Morgan Lee, Lily Nguyen, John Wilson, Eilya Yazdani, Christina Cabrera, London Hill, and Tiana Mankiewich. Thank you, Mrs. Manning, for bringing out the creative talents in our students. 
    • Congratulation to Mrs. Colver and her National History Day students who will be competing at the State level in Tallahassee. Six students went to the finals, and Alicia Rhinehart took first place with her beautiful exhibit on Helen Keller’s Triumph over Disabilities. 
    • Congratulations to our boys’ basketball team and Coach Hedrick. They are the North Division District Champions!
    • We are proud of our FBLA students, led by Mr. Hedrick who will be competing at the State level competition in Orlando.
    • Congratulations to Mrs. Wade and over 20 students who earned State awards for their Thespian Performances.
    • Thank you, Mrs. Yaeger, for sponsoring the Animal Helping Hands Club. Our amazing students are learning to care for and give kindness to animals. They are working with several organizations; The Suncoast Animal League, the Golden Retriever Rescue and the Bulldog Rescue.  Yaeger is also sponsoring a new club, The American Sign Language Club, after students announced interest in organizing this club. 

    We are very fortunate to recognize and celebrate so many Principal List, Honor Roll and Perfect Attendance students with t-shirts, a Mexican fiesta and other surprises.  We have many more students and staff members to celebrate, but only so much space in this newsletter; a great problem to have!

    Thank you to our amazing PTSA President, Lathea Bowen.  Mrs. Bowen has put so many special events in place for our students and families.  The latest great events sponsored by our PTSA were our recent dodgeball tournament and movie night!  She is in the process of organizing another great event called “Be Internet Awesome”! 

    A big “Thank You!” to all our supporters; you help our school continue its success year after year.
