There is a room full of synergy in the CMS IMC today! Mr. Veach's classes are learning research strategies, Mrs. Enyart's classes are applying research strategies and citing sources, and Ms. Mellott's classes are checking out books, reading, and working independently. All of this activity happens when everyone thinks win-win and synergizes! CMS leadership at its finest! #cmscusd1

They also donated many extra supplies such as binders, pencils, and tissues.
