The zoo trip was so much fun! I hope the Fireballs enjoyed the experience. We walked, talked, and observed. I loved hearing about the different stories from the students. Thank you to all the parents that drove and watched over the children carefully.
State Float: It's been a long tradition at CMS to have float day. Students will parade around the school on May 15th showcasing their float. It's the perfect way to end their Social Studies unit: States and Capitals. A student's float should contain some or all of the items below. Keep it movable, simple, and fun. Work on the float at home. Work on the write up in class.
