Principal's Message




Dear CBS Families,


We invite all Kindergarteners and new students to Meet and Greet your homeroom teachers on Friday September 2 from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. We will have a parent meeting for kindergarteners at 10:30 a.m. This way you can find your classroom, meet your homeroom teacher and even drop off any supplies before getting on the bus for the first day of school!


Crucial to our success is our CBS Parent/Teacher Organization.  Through hard work, our PTO had another wonderful year and maintains an excellent home-school connection.  You will see a few of the specific building programs/activities sponsored by the PTO in our important dates – they are extremely appreciated by staff and students.  Your participation in the CBS PTO is greatly encouraged.


We strive for open and frequent communication. Please visit our website for information, but to get you started here are some important September dates:


  • Friday September 2 – Meet and Greet – 1-2 p.m. for kindergarten and students new to CBS
  • Monday September 5 - Labor Day  - School Closed
  • Tuesday September  6 - First Day of School  - Full Day of School!
  • Tuesday September 13 - CBS Back To School Night 7:00 p.m.


We are sure there are many questions still to be answered and please feel free to contact us for anything.  Some specific reminders are:


  • Bus transportation information will be mailed to you directly from our transportation department


  • Supply List? Look under the parent link!


  • Letters with class placement will be mailed home August 24, 2016.


  • School begins at 8:35 a.m. and dismissal begins at 3:15 p.m.  Students are permitted to enter the building at 8:25 am. Walkers all enter through the back doors on the playground and bussers enter through the front doors. Please do not leave your children unsupervised on the playground as students may not be on school property when school is not in session unless a parent is present. If you need before or after school supervision for your student please contact the CDA to join the CHILD program at 609-298-0674 x1200


Thank you for your ongoing support in education and best wishes for a great summer.
