Bike "Roadeo" Permission Form &
Yearbook Order Deadline Reminder

Just a reminder that the CMES Bike "Roadeo" is tomorrow, Tuesday, May 30th from 8:45 to approx. 10:10 for grades 2 to 8. The permission form that was sent home today is needed for tomorrow, my apologies for not sending it home earlier. Be sure that your child has a helmet, bike lock and that their bike is in good working order. Taking part is optional, but highly recommended and a fun way to become a better bike rider.

If your child qualifies for the town wide Bike "Roadeo", a letter will be sent home. It is important to let us know if you are unable to make it to Saturday's event, as we would offer the spot to another student if you can't go.

As well, the deadline for ordering the CMES Yearbook is rapidly approaching! You have until this Friday, June 2nd to order through the School Cash Online. It's a great way to remember this year's school memories for only $13. The grade 8's will receive their yearbook as a grad gift from the School Council.

Good luck at tomorrow's Bike "Roadeo"!

Yearbooks & the Bike "Roadeo" - It must be getting close to June!

It's that time of year again - don't miss your opportunity to order your yearbooks by Friday June 2nd. It is a great memory for all, from the youngest Kindies to the those graduating grade 8, (who will receive their copy as a graduation gift from the School Council.) Yearbooks can be ordered through School Cash Online for $13, but only until JUNE 2nd.

If you have any candid group shots from any CMES sporting or special events that you think might be suitable for the yearbook, we would love to see them. Please email them to, or put them on a USB stick and drop it off at the office in an envelope with your name on it, no later than WEDNESDAY, MAY 31st.

Don't forget to tune up your bikes and double check your bell or horn for the Optimists Bike "Roadeo" that is coming to CMES on the morning of Tuesday, May 30th. It's a great opportunity for our kids in grade 2 to 8 to show their bike riding skills. Kinders and grade 1's often get to watch the big kids so that they know what to expect when they get to be old enough to participate. The top 3 boys and top 3 girls in each division will go on to the town wide competition on Saturday, June 3rd. Thank you to the Orangeville Optimists for making this happen.
