8th Grade students will be taking a benchmark test on Thursday, Feb. 22nd. Parents, please ensure they are well rested so they can do their best on the test.
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.
THE BENEFITS – 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
- Reduce suspensions
- Foster Social & Emotional development
