CMS is beginning the 2016-2017 course selection process for current 7th and 8th grade students as well as for 6th grade students who will attend CMS next year. The course selection process allows students to pick their courses for the upcoming school year.
One piece of this process centers on creating a wide variety of elective courses for middle school students to take. For the 2016-2017 school year, we are adding three new elective courses to the elective courses that currently exist:
The addition of these new elective courses will allow CMS to expand the variety of choices we offer to middle school students. Students will have the opportunity to explore different career options, which will assist as they plan for their future. Additionally, these elective offerings will allow CMS to develop a pathway to current courses CHS offers in the Fine Arts and Communication & Media Technology programs.
CMS is excited to assist students and their families with their planning for the upcoming school year!
Thank you for your support in helping your child reach his or her academic potential. Your encouragement and involvement will make all the difference in how your student perceives his or her middle school years. Together, working as a team, we can help your child learn, succeed, and achieve!
As the second semester gets underway, our school community will reinforce the key principles that we emphasized throughout the first semester which are for students to learn as much as possible while striving to be caring and respectful to others at all times.
Students are centering their focus on learning, using the following three important words: record, retain, and recall.
Students have taken many positive steps forward in both the care and respect that they extend towards others. The school community has worked to grow in this area through the living of the six Character Counts traits of trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring, and citizenship.
As students and teachers continue to work toward becoming a place in which our school community is proud, the words of our school pledge remain a point of focus. “Today I will do more than I have to do; I will treat others as I want to be treated, and I will become a better person.”
Your children have taken advantage of many opportunities throughout the first semester to grow academically, socially, and personally. Their accomplishments are a direct reflection of the amazing parents, relatives, and friends that they have who support them and encourage them every day.
