CIMS Weekly Update, August 18, 2019

Good afternoon, Corwin International families.  This is Mrs. Masciotra with the weekly update.

On Monday, we are hosting a meet and greet and welcome back day for all students on Monday, August 19th from 8-10am.  We would like to encourage all students to come, bring supplies, meet teachers, and get acquainted with the building, including changes for this year.  All students should enter the courtyard through the loop. Parents are welcome to help students carry items and find teachers; however, we will not be utilizing exterior doors, so please plan to enter through the back courtyard entrance.  

The first full day of school for all students is Tuesday, August 20th.  Students should bring summer work with them on the first day of school.  

Wednesday and Thursday are full school days, from 8:05am to 3:55pm.  Students should be in formal uniform on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays.  Casual uniforms will be worn on Thursdays. Please note that this is a change from last year.

Please note drop off and pick up procedures for this school year.  We realize that this is a change for many families; however, we hope that you understand our focus of keeping students safe.  Without buses, our car traffic is increasing and we want to ensure that we can supervise students adequately both before and after school.  

-In the morning, all students will gain access to the building from the courtyard.  Please do not use the staff parking lot or the main office doors as they will not be permitted for entrance for student drop off.

-In the afternoon, fourth graders and students with siblings from the FIMS bus will exit out the Lakeview doors near the auditorium - but all other students will exit through the courtyard.  

Any MYP student who will be participating in Softball, Volleyball or Cross Country need to have all clearing paperwork turned in starting Monday at 10:00 AM. Students who have not been cleared will not be allowed to participate in tryouts and or first practice. Any PYP student interested in participating in cross country will also need to have the required paperwork turned in on Monday at 10:00 in order to participate. All try outs and official practices begin Monday August 19th.

-Softball tryouts begin Monday at 4:15- 6 on the field. 

-Volleyball tryouts begin in the wood floor gym at 4:30-6 on Monday. Practice for both sports will be held all week. 

That concludes our announcements.  We can’t wait to see you all tomorrow!
