This notice is to share information regarding enterovirus. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (September 8, 2014), non-polio enteroviruses are very common viruses. They cause about 10 to 15 million infections in the United States each year.
Anyone can get infected with non-polio entereoviruses. But infants, children, and teenagers are more likely to get infected and become sick. That’s because they do not yet have immunity (protection) from previous exposures to the viruses.
Below you will find the website from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that provides information about entereoviruses.
We are being proactive in order to help prevent enterovirus by having students wash their hands often and using disinfectant wipes on desks, door knobs, switches, and anything else that is frequently touched. Enterovirus often exhibits typical cold/flu symptoms but like any respiratory infection can cause more difficulty for those with respiratory conditions. If you have any questions, please contact your school nurse.
Last year Ms. Gibson, Ms. Judd, and the CMS History Club students created care packages to military personnel overseas. The following is a letter sent to Ms. Gibson and everyone that participated. Great job Ms. Gibson, Ms. Judd, and the history club!
My name is Jeff Glover and I’m currently deployed in Afghanistan. We received numerous care packages from your History Club and I wanted to send my personal thanks for such a kind gesture. It may seem trivial, but little things like that really does lift the morale of everyone affected. Interestingly enough, I’m assigned to a unit where Americans are the minority – we have personnel from about 10 other countries and many of them commented that nobody back in their countries does anything like what you guys did. I placed the shoeboxes on a table by one of the main entry points and before I knew it they were gone, so hopefully some of the guys write back to the students.
Again please pass along our appreciation to your students for their incredible gestures, and also thank you for being a teacher. Military guys like me get thanks all the time, and it is appreciated, but I know teachers truly have a greater impact on society and our country than I ever will, so thanks for what you do!

In recognition of National Anthem Day, students around the school at CMS wore their grade appropriate colors in support of this 200 year celebration. In addition to the school support, students in the CMS band wrote their own lyrics to the National Anthem using the original music to the Star Spangled Banner. Below are some of the winning lyrics:
