School Planners

Because we believe that organization is a primary key to success, beginning this year, a Student Handbook will be provided for every student. The CLPMS Student Handbook contains the school calendar, bell schedule, behavior expectations, an organizational planner, and is used as the student’s hall pass. Donations to the school for the first planner are appreciated if possible, and if a student loses his/her handbook, it will cost $5 to buy a replacement
