It was a wonderful morning to celebrate our school's favorite tradition, the CMDS Easter Walk-Through. Students reenact the final stages and scenes of Jesus' life (done via video this year), and then each student places a flower on the Courtyard Cross. The walk-through is a beautiful way to celebrate our Lord's greatest sacrifice: "Every morning is Easter Morning, from now on!"

In Literature class, 5th grade students are reading "Bud, Not Buddy" by Christopher Paul Curtis. This book is set during the Great Depression and follows a young boy as he travels from Michigan to find his father. Mrs. Reynolds taught the students how to address and write letters using the writing process. Students brainstormed, wrote, peer-edited, revised and published a letter to President Franklin or Mrs. Eleanor Roosevelt. Students also had to use vocabulary words from the novel to tie in comprehension. #choosecmds #wechoosecmds #theprimarychoice #cmdsclassof2021

Third grade โ€œkicked offโ€ their book challenge today. Each student set a personal goal for the number of chapter books (100+ pages) they would read between now and the end of the school year. The book challenge encourages them to set and meet a goal and explore different genres of literature! Our 3rd grade math teachers joined in on the kickoff as well with math facts disguised as halftime snacks. Third grade parents also had the opportunity to participate by writing a letter of encouragement to their student. #cmdslovesreading #cmdsbookchallenge #choosecmds #wechoosecmds #theprimarychoice #cmdsclass2024
