CCPS Board adopts calendar for 2020-21 school year

The Caroline County School Board voted Monday, February 10, 2020, to adopt a calendar for the 2020-21 school year that includes:

  • Two-week winter break (3 weekends)
  • Full week spring break (plus Friday before)
  • 3 Day Thanksgiving break
  • A shortened School Day (15min. reduction to the end of the school day)

After receiving input from multiple stakeholder groups and an online survey, the school division’s calendar committee made revisions to the initially proposed calendar and requested approval from the school board. The adopted calendar seeks to accomplish a variety of ends, including a pre-Labor-Day start, balanced job-embedded professional learning opportunities and clerical time for teachers, and different days for elementary and secondary parent-teacher conferences. The CCPS school board and
calendar committee are pleased to have an academic calendar that supports high-quality teaching and learning with a shortened school day.

CMS Celebrates Black History Month!

Take a look at some of our amazing, student-created decorated doors in honor of Black History Month!

Advisory classes were tasked with choosing a historical figure and make a tribute to them and their accomplishments. The kids knocked it out of the park as they collaborated and created their masterpieces.

The CMS Athletic Department accepts two totes full of shoes.

Each year, the athletic department at Caroline Middle School, gives shoes to students in need.  This year, they were running low on their supply of shoes, so they mentioned it to some individuals as a way to to get the word out about the need for donations.

The local Caroline Masons Kilwinning Lodge No 2-237 went shopping and purchased shoes for the students in need.  Thank you to the Caroline Mason Lodge for donating two full totes of shoes.
