Principal’s Message

Estimadas Familias de Para Los Niños,

We are glad that you have joined the Mustang family. I am excited to be part of this campus and community and am looking forward to the fantastic things we will be accomplishing this year.

Our faculty, staff, and administration are focused on providing a quality learning experience for all students through the various curricular and extracurricular opportunities available. Our focus as educators will continue to be on preparing students for college and careers by developing essential skills and behaviors in a safe, supportive environment.

Our partnership with our families and community is an integral part of the success of CMS. We encourage you to become involved, whether through Coffee and Pizza with the Principal, English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC), School Site Council (SSC) or one of the other support groups aimed at improving our campus. Your feedback and support are essential to our continued improvement. I am excited about the partnerships we will build this school year.  Go Mustangs!
