Building Sturdy Human Beings for

Incoming 7th Graders! You are invited!
Each year, we invite our incoming 7th graders to join us for a wonderful, get-to-know-Cresthill experience even before the school year begins. New Beginnings is a CMS tradition that affords students the opportunity to connect with some of their Cresthill teachers, have fun with other incoming 7th graders and get to know their new school. See all of the information here and get signed up right away! We hope you can join us for New Beginnings 22-23!
