CCMS 2021-2022 Information
July 29th, 2021
On behalf of myself and the Central Cambria Middle School faculty and staff, I would like to take this opportunity to share our excitement for our students' return on August 26th. While we are incredibly proud of what our school community accomplished last year, amidst all of the challenges presented with Covid19, we look forward to bringing students back into the classrooms for the 2021-2022 school year. The experiences that we shared last year and obstacles that we overcame as a community have prepared us and taught us to embrace change and be ready for any new challenges that we may face along the way. We look forward to a great partnership with you to ensure that your children can achieve to their highest potential.
I am sure there are many questions you may have as parents and guardians with students entering middle school for the first time or returning from a school year filled with change. This newsletter aims to provide you with important information, keep you up-to-date with changes at CCMS, and share frequently asked questions that have been asked throughout the summer.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out via email at email@example.com or by phone (814-472-6505.)
