We, at CMS, have a strong and focused academic program that holds students to high standards in the core academic subjects, the arts, technology, and physical education. As part of the CMS faculty, I have committed myself to the TRIBES agreements and will continue to emphasize “personal best” and “mutual respect”, in particular, throughout the year. I am a firm believer that exceptional effort and determination can overcome virtually any barrier to an individual’s success. The trick is instilling this strong desire to achieve in all of our students. This is exactly what we, as a faculty, aim to do this year.
To complement our academic program, we offer an incredible array of activities and experiences for our middle school students, including plays, concerts, class trips, athletic competitions and guest speakers. In addition, our students will have the opportunity to participate in organizations such as National Junior Honor Society and Student Council, and become involved in a range of community service projects that serve our local community. We will again be offering a variety of clubs as part of the Advisory Program, which will allow each of our students to participate in brief “mini-courses” that afford student the opportunity to explore areas of interest as they continue the process of self-discovery that is so important at this age. All in all, there is something for everyone and FUN is a major component of life in middle school.
