CMS Friday Focus

CHESTERTON MIDDLE SCHOOL NEWSLETTER - JULY 30, 2021

Good evening CMS families. This is Mike Hamacher, Principal at Chesterton Middle School, with the Friday Focus.


I hope you are all enjoying your summer and that you are as excited as we are to come back in August! Staff is working extremely hard in preparation for the 2021-2022 school year. We are looking forward to a wonderful school year! Please review the contents of this newsletter, there is important information for families regarding Back-to-School events, fall sports at CMS, and orientation programs.


CMS has a new School Nurse. Her name is Lisa Ford. She is a great addition to our team! If you need to contact her, her email address is liford@duneland.k12.in.us.


Additionally, student schedules are being finalized and they will be available in the coming days. I will email all parents when they are available.


Have a wonderful weekend!
