From the Principal/Welcome Message
Dear Central Middle School Parents,
I welcome you to Central Middle School (CMS) and to another successful school year. We are committed to our students and parents for academic excellence, developmental responsiveness, and social equity. Our guiding vision is the values of Honesty, Integrity, and Responsibility in all that we say, write, and do every day. Along with your partnership, we will further advance our school of excellence for the development of all CMS students.
I have three core beliefs about middle grades education:
- Student Development and Achievement is our primary purpose and we must be accountable for all students' learning and growth at high levels
- Parent Engagement supports that facilitates the educational process while setting a personal and character development standard for students
- The Teaching and Learning Environment is the pathway to establish positive school experiences and to motivate students to dream big and work hard
These beliefs guide my educational decisions and help me set a foundation on which to develop school improvement goals. Combined with good communication, I have found these beliefs to be of value in supporting a child-centered learning environment. I welcome all ideas, suggestions, and opportunities to enhance the educational environment and culture in our school.
There are several ways to keep "In the Know." For the latest announcements please make sure you check the school website on a regular basis. Please take time to sign up for our e-newsletter, and importantly, please check your child's grades on Power School on a regular basis. Lastly, please contact me if you have any questions. I can be reached by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 403-346-4397. I believe in an open-door policy and I look forward to meeting each of you.
It is a privilege to be your Principal at Central Middle School. I look forward to a great school year. GO CYCLONES!
