Principal's Message

Dear CME Family,

GOOD NEWS! CME is happy to announce that we are able to bring back our Holiday Show, even if in a modified form, on December the 16th.  Our Eagles have already begun preparation for this festive event and will be eager to amaze you with their exceptional talents and skills. To showcase our outstanding Eagles in this school-wide performance in a safe environment while following current guidelines, the show will be a mix of pre-recorded and live content. While we will still have two performances, only half of our students will be performing live at each show. The schedule will be as follows:

Holiday Show Times 

    8:30 am (Live Performance K, 2, 4 and 6)

        (Recorded Performance: 1, 3 and 5)

    Doors open at 7:55 am and will Close at 8:25 am

    1:00 pm (Live Performance: 1, 3, 5 and 6)

        (Recorded Performance: K, 2, 4, and 6)

    Doors open at 12:25 pm and will Close at 12:55 pm

This school-wide event is a cherished tradition at CME and an event that has always been very well attended in the past by parents, family, and friends. While we wish we could share our Holiday Cheer with extended family and friends as we have in the past, this year’s performance will have limited seating availability. For our performances this year, we can only accommodate two seats per family (Children under 4 can sit on their parent’s laps.). To help us organize this process, we ask that you sign-up through the links below for the AM or PM performance.  You can either use your two slots for one performance, one parent comes to the AM, and one parent comes to the PM, or even the same parent can come to both; however, please help us make this event safe and spacious for everyone by only requesting two slots. These slots will be given out on a first-come, first-serve basis. Once one show has reached capacity, it will no longer be an option for you to choose. Please keep in mind the live and recorded schedule above. If you want the best pictures, you might want to attend the performance where your child’s grade level is performing live.  We know that this may cause some families to split their seats to see all their children “live” and we want to say “Thank You” in advance for your understanding and flexibility.

Holiday Show Highlights:

  • Recording session for Kindergarten - 5th grade: Please have your child come dressed to perform their recorded version of the performance this Wednesday, December the 8th. 

  • All guests should be symptom-free and must wear a mask while attending the performance. 

  • Please sign up for your “Two Slots.” This is first-come, first-serve. Once a show reaches capacity, it will no longer be available. 

  • Please come a few minutes early so all guests can be seated before students enter the gym. Doors will open 35 minutes prior to show time and will close 5 minutes before each performance, and no one will be admitted after this time. (Each show will last approximately 45 minutes.)

  • Each Holiday Show will be recorded so you can share it with extended family and friends.  The recording will be posted on CME’s homepage.  

  • Holiday Parties will once again be limited to two parent helpers per classroom. Party times are:

    • 1, 3, 5, and 6th at 10:30 am

    • K, 2, and 4 at 2:00 pm 

    • Goodie bags will be sent home with snacks. We have asked for only prepackaged items to be placed into the goodie bags. If your child has any food allergies,  you may want to check the items in their goodie bag prior to your child consuming them when they get home from school. Remember, while our school is always allergy aware, we are not allergy free. 

  • Finally, come with the anticipation to leave with a smile and a bit of holiday spirit to kick off a wonderful Winter Break! 

Wishing you an enjoyable, memorable, and blessed Holiday Season!

Mr. Paugh
