Good Evening Cavaliers this is Mr. Murray with your weekly update. Happy Mother’s Day to all of our fantastic moms of Cuthbertson! On behalf of all our teachers and staff we would like to thank you for your kind and positive words via phone call, email, and social media in recognition of teacher appreciation week. Both our teachers and administration miss you and hope you are staying safe during this time! The State Board of Education recently presented guidelines for grading for the remainder of the school year. It was determined that students in grades 6 to 8 would receive a designation of PC-19 or WC-19 as a final grade at the end of the school year. No numeric or letter grades will be given.
I hope everyone is staying safe and doing their part to flatten the curve. Per state mandate all schools will remain closed for the remainder of the year. Parents realize some students might still have items left in their lockers, when the state removes this mandate we will communicate a plan for students to pick up any belongings left at the school. Please continue to encourage your child to make a commitment to completing all assignments provided by his/her teachers. Teachers will be inputting assignments in powerschool moving forward. Students will receive a mark of Collected, Missing or Incomplete. Teachers will use the comment section of powerschool to further explain any mastery concerns.
We are very excited for the grand opening of our new CMS Virtual Art Gallery! Managed by Mrs. Peppard, our art teacher, we are celebrating our students by showcasing their artwork through a public canvas platform for your viewing enjoyment. Please view information below from Mrs. Peppard, regarding our Gallery. One of the privileges of being an art teacher is displaying student's finished masterpieces in the main hallways at CMS for our community to enjoy. Due to the closing of school I decided to create an on-line student gallery so that you, the viewer, can see the amazing work that is being done at home by art students in my classes as well as by students who are being artistic on their own.
