Please remind students to support our last spirit day this week by wearing blue & gold this Friday. These colors not only represent CMS, but also our Future Farmers of America (FFA) organization. Also, FFA is hosting this week’s service project. We are taking donations of dry/wet cat & dog food/treats for the Caroline Animal Shelter. They are also in need of old towels and dog beds! Please drop off all donations in the box in the school lobby by this Friday.
The National Junior Honor Society application deadline has been extended until Mon., Feb. 26th. If you have not turned in your applications, please do so by the extended deadline.
For the first time, CMS has a team of five students competing in the Destination Imagination Regional Tournament this weekend! We are so proud of our students! Go Eagles!
The Destination Imagination program is a fun, hands-on system of learning that fosters students’ creativity, courage and curiosity through open-ended academic Challenges in the fields of STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics), fine arts and service learning. Our participants learn patience, flexibility, persistence, ethics, respect for others and their ideas, and the collaborative problem solving process. Teams may showcase their solutions at a tournament.
CMS Kicks off The Middle School 30 Day Kindness Challenge 2/20/2018
WHAT IS THE MIDDLE SCHOOL KINDNESS CHALLENGE?
The Middle School Kindness Challenge is an easy and free way to make kindness commonplace and improve school climate and student learning in the critical middle school years. Open to schools with any combination of grades 4-8, the Challenge offers best-in-class kindness activities to teach and foster kindness over a four-week period of the school’s choosing. By teaching kids how to practice kindness, be more empathetic, and manage their emotions and actions, they become better equipped to navigate our complex world, at school, at home, and online.
Middle schools where teachers and school staff intentionally and systematically teach and foster kindness are more effective at helping students succeed, both in school and in life. Because we know this, the Middle School Kindness Challenge offers an engaging, exciting, and readily doable opportunity to:
Improve school climate
Foster Social & Emotional development
Parents, please see the link below on how you can support our Kindness Challenge.
