Principal’s Message - Spring Semester


undefinedThe Spring semester begins Monday, January 8th and with the new semester comes new classes for some students, SBAC testing, 8th grade class activities, and Culmination!

Fall semester report cards were mailed home on December 18th. Now that winter break is coming to a close and your family is gearing up for the Spring semester it is time to take a moment to once again review with your child their Fall grades, to celebrate their successes, to encourage them to keep working, and to help them set goals for success in the second semester.

I am happy we are able to provide 12 weeks of Saturday intervention this Spring. Beginning Saturday, January 20th through Saturday, April 28th from 8:30 – 11:50 a.m. Applications were mailed home in December and are due to the Counseling Office on Friday, January 12th.  If you have misplaced the application, please have your student stop by the Counseling Office to pick up a new one. We want all of our students to have the opportunity to receive the support they need to succeed.

At CCMS depend on our parents to help make sure your student is completing homework assignments and attending school regularly. The easiest way to ensure student achievement is for them to attend school.

Eighth grade students can look forward to many wonderful spring activities as they prepare for the close of their time at CCMS. The Culmination ceremony is the morning of Friday, June 7th. It is important for eighth graders to do well in their classes in order to be eligible for participation in all the exciting eighth grade activities and to walk across the stage in June. Please review with your child the Culmination requirements found in the students’ agenda books.  In the meantime, I encourage all of our students to give their best efforts in the new semester!
