School Progress Plan

Volunteer Training

All volunteers must complete the volunteer application and participate in an orientation/training session annually. Please visit the BCPS Volunteer webpage for instructions.

For parents who plan on volunteering at school or serving as chaperones on field trips.

Please attend one of the volunteer training dates. Dates and times for the training are posted in the PTA Newsletter or Team Newsletters.

Cougar Learning Lab

CMS Cougar Learning Lab is open to students from 2:30 – 3:30 p.m., on Tuesdays and Thursdays in the library. Teachers volunteer their time in the Lab to provide a safe location for students to work on a variety of academic activities, such as work completion, organization, seeking teacher help, or reading. Students need to be prepared to work productively the entire time. 

Bus Loop Rules & Regulations

The following rules are currently in place at CMS. The rules are implemented in order to ensure that school buses may enter and exit the bus loop without a back up, as well as to alleviate backups on Greenside Drive. Signs are posted displaying the following information. Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns.

Cars are prohibited from entering the bus loop from 7:00-9:30 am and 2:00-4:00 pm Monday through Friday.

Cars may only turn right onto Greenside Drive between 7:15 and 8:15 am Monday through Friday.

Keeping safety in our minds, please pay special attention to the Google Map image below.  Cars are not allowed to enter the back parking lot to drop off students in the morning.  This has been a serious safety issue for both students and staff over the years.  The bus loop and back parking lot will be open for buses and staff parking only.  There are three designated student drop off locations along Greenside, see the marked locations, so that the children can cross safely under the supervision of the crossing guard.  We have worked with our school improvement team (which includes parents) and the Baltimore County Traffic Engineering Office to determine the safest locations for student drop off.

Student Agenda Pages

Each year students are given an agenda book that contains a calendar in which to record assignments each day. Students are expected to carry their agenda book with them to each class. CMS also includes informational pages about the school in the front of the book.
