Parent Toolkit
For Parents of Elementary Students

Elementary StudentsWelcome to CMS! This page is designed to help you get your elementary student ready for school.

Elementary school is an important part of public education because it lays the foundation for later learning. In elementary school, your child will learn to read, to write and to do math. It’s important to have your child rested and ready for school every day so that he or she is prepared to learn.

The links below will help you locate your child’s school, tell you what immunizations and documents you will need to register your child and what supplies your child will need. You’ll also find links to bell schedules, lunch menus, transportation information, student assignment and other important information.

The best source of information, once your child is in school, is always the teacher or the school. If you have questions that can’t be resolved by the teacher or a school administrator, please contact your school’s area learning community (see the How is CMS organized? link below for information on our learning communities). Parental involvement in a child’s education is essential for academic success. We urge you to visit your child’s school and teacher regularly and to participate in your child’s educational journey with us.

Have a great school year!
