A big thanks to the de Souza family for donating pizza to the Peabody back to school night.

On the first day of school, your children were greeted with a festive display of balloons at the entrance to each CMS building, courtesy of the PTG.  This complemented the live music provided by the school to help create a lively and fun environment at arrival.  Many thanks to the generous CMS families whose donations to the PTG’s annual appeal have made this possible.

Join CCACE for Home Alone Safety for Kids
This program is for students in grades 3-6.
Knowing when your child is ready to stay home alone is a difficult decision, and preparation can make the transition much easier for you and your child! Home Alone Safety is a readiness program that helps prepare your child while building self-confidence, a sense of responsibility, and proper decision making abilities. This program is a stepping stone for younger grades as they explore and become comfortable with the idea of being home, and for older grades to better understand and gain confidence with being home alone. This course will teach basic safety guidelines through a variety of fun, interactive activities, discussions, and situational role-playing. 
Join us on Wednesday, October 12th from 2-4 pm at Alcott School, $45. Click here to register online or call 978-318-1432. Scholarship is available
