• Message from CEO Eric S. Gordon


    Summer is here, and while some students and staff are on vacation other scholars are still actively engaged in school through our extended year programs and summer classes. 

    As we look back on the 2017-18 school year, I am encouraged by the gains we continue to see in early childhood, third grade reading, graduation rates, parent engagement, student attendance, enrollment and more!

    It is with pride that I reflect on a year filled with accomplishment for CMSD's students and teachers, like our All-City Musical's Dazzle Awards  and a World Championship for our Robotics Team.

    More than $45 million in scholarship dollars were earned by CMSD seniors this year--a testament to the hard work and dedication of our scholars and educators this year.

    While the school year winds down more slowly for some, I hope each and every one of you takes the time you need to enjoy the summer, to catch up on family time--so rare for some families when school is in session--and to refresh and be ready for the start of a new school year.

    Our 2018-19 Academic Calendar will arrive at homes soon, along with back-to-school mailers with school assignment and transportation information--a reminder that CMSD educators are already preparing for a successful 2018-19 school year.  

    I encourage you to routinely visit the CMSD website for information and updates throughout the summer and make sure your contact information is updated prior to the start of the new school year.

    Best wishes for a fun and relaxing summer break!
