COURSE DESCRIPTIONS:

EMPOWER: It is a business type class that will teach: Enrichment, Media, Personal Development, Organization, Web Design, Economics, and Relationships.

ADVISORY: Small "families" in our building that meet daily for 25 minutes for the purposes of: learning to work, creating a safe place for students to belong, developing character through lessons, utilizing study hall, and a weekly one-on-one personal conference between each student and their advisory teacher.  The weekly conference is a check-in concerning how they are, answering questions, checking grades and attendance, and if necessary, discussing any behavioral concerns. 

PRIDE: We have a really unique time here at CMS dedicated to student growth. Students have the opportunity to receive individual academic attention in the areas of math and reading as well as enrichment opportunities.

Depending on their AimsWeb scores, students are placed in a Pride 1, 2 or 3 class.

Pride 1 classes are enrichment and typically last for 50 minutes.

Our current Pride classes include:
