What an amazing Family Fun Night at CSMS! We raised $763 dollars for our Backpack Program to support our kids coming from homes that lack food security. From the bottom of our heart, we want to thank parents and teachers who supported our event--physically, mentally, and emotionally, and all the parents and students who joined us for our night of Family and Fun!
We would like to congratulate the winner of the first annual Teacher Bake-Off, Mrs. Masters. She received a cookie jar trophy filled with two dozen cookies from Patti Cakes. Her winning dessert was a Coca-Cola sheet cake bought by Madelyn W. for $67.
CSMS students stick together!

Stay in School Trip to UCA
A group of CSMS students took a field trip to UCA. They visited the Writing Lab, the Math Lab, the Academic Success Lab, and the scanning electron microscope. They played on "The Stripes", ran around the basketball court, and enjoyed a free buffet lunch in the cafeteria courtesy of UCA. They met with the Assistant Director of Admissions, the athletic department's academic success coach, a science professor, and the Recruiting Operations Officer of the ROTC program. The messages they heard today include: never give up; even if you struggle with a class, there are places on campus to help you be successful; you can earn scholarships through academics, sports, performances (band, choir, etc.), foreign language and ROTC, etc.; you can take advantage of Pell Grants and Lottery Scholarships; if you dream but you never engage in hard work, your dreams remain dreams but if you work hard, your dreams become reality; grades matter now and always; not everyone gets a trophy in life, you have to earn your rewards; if you want to, you can; do not let anyone tell you that you can't be successful; and say your prayers, do your homework, study hard and tell your mom and dad that you love them.
Thank you UCA for a successful day! I know it was well worth our students' time away from the classroom. This trip has enhanced our Stay in School emphasis this year by providing a concrete vision that our students can grab hold of to expand their dream of academic success.
