The Hawk Report

Christa McAuliffe MS Parent Newsletter - Week of Jan. 9

A Message From Our Principal, Mr. Lemon

Greetings Hawk Nation Parents and Students,

Welcome back to the Spring Semester of the 2022-23 school year. We hope that you had an opportunity to connect with family and friends, while getting some well deserved rest and relaxation. Our first two days back on campus were full of presentations to ensure that our Hawk scholars remembered what it means to be Hawk PROUD.

As we begin our journey into the Spring Semester, we ask that you keep the following important updates in mind:

  • Safety Drills/Procedures. Thursday and Friday students participated in all drills designated for FBISD. Please review the Parent Information document below for further information on what each drill consists of, and how we work collectively to ensure that all students and staff are safe at CMMS. Should you have any questions regarding safety procedures, please reach our to our Safety Administrator, Mr. Blake Wilson at

  • Term 2 and Semester 1 grades posted before the holiday break! Please review your student's Skyward account and make sure that all grades are passing (70 and above). We are encouraging students to strive for A's & B's as we know that our Hawks are more than capable of high academic success. Should you have a question or concern about your student's grade, please contact the classroom teacher.

  • Attendance Matters! Each instructional day is filled with new material and additional opportunities for student growth. It is essential that we have our Hawk Scholars in attendance each and every day, for the entirety of the day. Please remember that Texas has a 90% rule that states that a student must be in attendance 90% of the time to receive credit for a course. Should an emergency or illness arise and your student must be out, please be sure to send a note to Ms. Katrina Taylor, CMMS Attendance Clerk, at, so that the absence can be excused.

  • Thursday we reviewed our campus expectations to ensure our Hawks continue to be Hawk PROUD. Feel free to review the presentation with your student, and continue to encourage them to make good choices each and every day.

Let's continue to work together, and please do not hesitate to contact us should you have any questions or concerns. Remember, we are Hawk Nation... Hawk Proud!

Mr. Trevor Lemon

Principal, Christa McAuliffe MS

COMING SOON: Mandatory Student IDs

Safety and security is a top priority for FBISD and CMMS. Beginning in January 2023, students will begin wearing Scholar Chip IDs at all times (with the exception of rigorous physical exercise/PE) while on campus. Every student will be provided a student ID, plastic sleeve and lanyard.

Students will be required to visibly display their Student ID badge, above the waist, with the picture clearly visible. Students badges will provide access to the following services within the building:

  • Cafeteria meal payments
  • Library services
  • Entrance to campus events (dances, PBIS events, etc.)

In the event that a student reports to school without his/her ID, they will receive a temporary wristband upon entry into the building. After receiving 3 temporary wristbands, students will be required to purchase a new badge for $5.00.

Students will be advised of the expectations aligned to Student IDs within the coming week(s). Should you have questions or concerns, please reach out to Assistant Principal, Mr. Brandon Woodard at
