I want to thank five very special educators who will be retiring at the end of the week:  Teachers, Lisa Knepper, Sue Howe, Bonnie Carpenter, Kathy MacDonald, and instructional assistant, Diane Marandola. Their service to the CMS students, staff, and community has been instrumental in the success of so many.  We wish them all the best in their retirement and new adventures ahead.
