Happy New Year! We have started the New Year off on a great note. I would like to update you on some of the procedures and policies here at CMS. Please remember that the tardy bell rings each morning at 7:39 am. Students who are late must report to the office before going to their homerooms. When dropping or picking up students, please move forward as much as possible and watch for pedestrians crossing at the crosswalk. Students should not be dropped off at the crosswalk. Please do not drive through the parking lot to drop students off or pick them up. In the afternoon, students should not be picked up in the gravel lot closest to the gym. Middle school students are allowed to walk to the high school in the afternoon to ride home with an older sibling. Students are not permitted to load the bus at the high school. Please be sure to check with your child if they owe any lunch money or class fees. The PLTW, Project Lead the Way, classes changed at the beginning of 2nd semester. If your child is taking PLTW, please remember to send the $20.00 class fee.

This semester we will be providing additional interventions for students during 7th period. If your child is having difficulty in any classes, please schedule a conference to meet with his or her teacher. Please remind your student about the dress code policy. Spandex garments are not permitted. If leggings are worn, there should be a top long enough to cover their bottoms and is fingertip length on all sides.

This semester we will have tryouts for cheer, dance, archery, football, basketball, and volleyball. I would like to encourage students to take advantage of the free physical clinics that will be offered. We will send more information out on those dates shortly. Report cards were sent home today. Please sign and return the report card to school tomorrow. There will be a parent meeting for 8th grade students at CCHS on January 16th at 5:30 to discuss schedules for next school year. There will also be an Open Door Wednesday event at CCHS for 8th grade parents in March. If there are any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me by email at or phone at 205-280-2750.




Thank you,
