Welcome to the 2019-2020 School Year!

Principal's Welcome Mesage 2019-2020

Parents & Guardians:

All of us at CMS extend a big welcome back to all of our students and families. We have been very busy behind the scenes preparing for the start of the school year, and we can't wait to welcome your children on Tuesday, August 27th. The middle years are exciting times for children (and parents), and it's our job to create a platform that supports all students academically, socially and emotionally. We all take great pride in making this a top priority in our day-to-day routines. Please know that we will communicate frequently using various methods: CMS Weekly eNews; Twitter: @CMS_Grizzlies; Instagram: CharltonMiddleSchool & YouTube. If you have anything exciting you would like to share with us, please use #CMSPride with your post. Afterall, communication is the key to overall success. Please follow us to stay up to date on all of our school-related topics and our general day-to-day fun.

We hope you had an amazing summer and are excited to return to school. We are looking forward to greeting all of our students next week. Until then, enjoy the remaining summer break.
