Assistant Principal Mr. Largy, School Resource Officer Blanchette and I have recently observed parent drop‐off and pick-up. We are concerned about safety during this time. This letter is a reminder of the drop-off and pick-up procedures at the front of the school.

  1. Always drive the car past the crosswalk when dropping off and picking up your child.
  2. If you drop your child off at the back or middle of the line (which is not recommended), please do not pull out and go around other cars.
  3. Please do not pull into the parking lot to have your child enter or exit the vehicle. This is very dangerous as cars are pulling into parking spaces and some backing out of spaces. Students face an additional hazard when they have to cross the thruway where the majority of parents are driving.
  4. Please be respectful, patient and courteous to other drivers.
  5. If you want to avoid the heaviest traffic, try to arrive before 7:35 am.

If you have any further questions, suggestions or concerns regarding student drop-off and pick-up, please contact Mr. Largy, Officer Blanchette or me.

Matthew Benson, Principal


Hawk News, facilitated by the Technology Integrator, Lauren Benson, is a student lead broadcast at Cawley Middle School. Each morning, students from grades six, seven, and eight meet before school to pull together school announcements to form a script that is broadcast live around 7:45 am to every classroom in the school.

There are a variety of roles for students such as: script writers, camera operator, scroller, broadcasters, and alternate broadcaster. In addition to the live broadcast, students maintain the Hawk News website: https://sites.google.com/a/sau15.net/cms-hawknews-nh/

There is now a Hawk News broadcast archival site: https://sites.google.com/a/sau15.net/hawknews-archive/ exclusively available for parents to access to view the students’ broadcasts.


To celebrate 10 years of academic excellence at CMS, commemorative bricks will be sold
to support an outdoor classroom. In 2013, a group of sixth grade students with their teachers were inspired to build an outdoor classroom to assist the community and provide an outdoor space for learning.

Imagine donating a brick and having it visible as part of the floor to the pavilion for many years to come. Leave a memorable mark on this project and help our students turn a dream into reality. For more information including how to purchase a brick please visit the following link.
https://www.bricksrus.com/order/cmsoutdoorclassroom/e presentation appropriate information will be disseminated to students and mailed home to parents along with posting it on the West High School information page via the Cawley website.


March was a productive month for the Cawley NJHS. Members volunteered at the Kids Kloset at the Town Hall. The volunteers helped organize clothes and played with the children while their parents were shopping. Also, the “Imagine It!” committee is almost done the first book in the “Imagine It!” series and hope to begin the second book very soon. Tryouts for the NJHS talent show will be April 7 and 8. The talent show is May 9. The NJHS will have 10 members help with the “Get Moving Fitness Night” at Underhill on March 28. Many members will be participating in the Rock N’ Race in Concord on May 15.
