Dear Triton Families,


This week’s Growth Mindset quote: Football is football and talent is talent, but the mindset of your team makes all the difference.Robert Griffin III

I want to thank Mrs. Alison Keehan, Interim Assistant Principal, for her outstanding work with students and staff over the past seven weeks.  She has been a dependable and forward-thinking administrator, and I’m incredibly proud of the efforts she’s put forth to ensure safety, support and excellence at CMS.  Mrs. Keehan will return to her classroom on April 25th and Mr. Jeff Beckley will take over as Interim Assistant Principal for the rest of the school year.
