Wet Spring Break Reminder
Needed to find a home for this photo from last week before pulling it from the intro page. This was after just the first day of a 4+ day rain last week that brought us several inches of drought relief but hampered some school spring break activities. The low water bridge in the park had just been repaired from years of previous overflows and got tested immediately.
CHS Band News
Winterguard received 2nd place in their class on Saturday. They go to State contest on Saturday, March 31 at ORU. We will have a send-off performance this Friday at 7:30PM in the MS Gym. Please come support these ladies!!!

Cookie dough will be arriving on Wednesday, March 28th. If your child sold a lot, please be prepared to pick them up right after school. These come frozen, and we have no way of keeping them that way overnight.

The Cadet Jazz Distraction will be going to TCC on Friday, March 30 for a contest. Please come listen to these kids at 12noon at the TCC PAC off Hwy. 169 at 91st St. exit.

Let's stay on top of grades by keeping up with your child's progress through the parent portal. We need every student eligible for these events, and state contest is April10th.

Air Force Academy's Honor Code Camp
Hi Ted - my son Roc Robbins, an 8th grader at CMS, has been selected to attend the Air Force Academy's Honor Code camp this summer in Colorado Springs, CO. He is very excited about this opportunity and has begun fund raising efforts to offset the $3,000 for tuition and travel cost. We are raffling off a S&W AR 15 gun with the proceeds going directly to his camp fund. Tickets are $5 and this Saturday March 31st we will be at the corner 5th and Main selling tickets from 9-3. Appreciate any help in getting the word out on --Thanks, Danielle Robbins (3/25/2012)
FFA update from John Hamlin 3-28-2012: Mallory did not place at Vinita, but she gained valuable experience from the competition which enabled her to place second at Dewey the next evening.
