It’s Principals Week!

Illinois Principals Association invites you to celebrate Principals Week October 24-30. 

We are so lucky to have TWO incredible principals and a wonderful Pupil Services Administrator to celebrate! THANK YOU Dr. Brown, Mr. Jones, and Mrs. Capizzi for the countless ways you care for our CHMS community.

If you see either of them this week (they are always busily scurrying about) please let them know how much they are appreciated!
