REGISTRATION PROCEDURES 

CLASS OF 2030 (Incoming 6th Grade)

On January 6, 2023, 5th grade teachers will share the official registration form and informational videos with their students. They will discuss registration materials, answer questions, and assist students with making their selections on the registration form.  All 5th grade students will bring the form home on January 6 so parents can review the elective selections (Band, Choir, Orchestra, General Music, and/or AVID) made by their child, sign the form, and return it to their child’s elementary teacher.  All registration forms should be returned to your child’s 5th grade teacher no later than January 17, 2023.  Informational videos about courses in each department are available on this web page.  Specialized courses for students who receive instruction/support through the special education and EL programs will be determined at spring IEP meetings.  Students or families needing additional assistance with the registration process are encouraged to contact their child’s 5th grade teacher or the CMS counseling office at 651-653-2881.  There will also be an online Q and A on January 5, 2023 from 6-7 p.m.  

CLASSES OF 2028 and 2029 (Incoming 7th and 8th grade)

On January 6, 2023,  middle school science teachers will answer questions and assist students with the Synergy online registration process. Online registration will run from January 6, 2023 through January 17, 2023.   Parents are encouraged to review the elective selections made by their child by logging in to StudentVue with their child.  Informational videos about courses in each department are available on this web page.  Specialized courses for students who receive instruction/support through the special education and EL programs will be determined at spring IEP and parent/teacher meetings.  Students or families needing additional assistance with the registration process are encouraged to contact the CMS counseling office at 651-653-2881.
