Colt Corner

Celebrating 40 Years of Excellence

August 8, 2016

Dear Colt Community,

Thank you for taking the time to read the first edition of the Colt Corner for the 2016-2017 school year. Let me begin by saying how excited I am to join the Colleyville Middle School family! Our office staff has been working hard preparing to make this school year one of the best ever at CMS.

We will be celebrating the 40 year anniversary of CMS and hope that you can follow the celebration all year long with us on Twitter @cmscolts ! The Colt Corner will be one of the many forms of communication used to keep you informed with Colleyville Middle School, which will supplement our school website. When you scroll down through the Colt Corner you will find upcoming events and a lot of information to keep you informed throughout the year.

We look forward to an exciting school year, and also seeing you around campus soon!

David Arencibia, Ed.D.
