Innovative Teacher of the Month

Congratulations to Mrs. Anne Hamilton!! Mrs. Hamilton received the August Innovative Teacher Award for Central Middle School. Mrs. Hamilton is the librarian for CMS and also teaches a discovery class daily. Recently, Mrs. Hamilton incorporated writing into her discovery plans by having her students write letters and address envelopes to an elementary teacher. The students and teachers thoroughly enjoyed this activity.

Student Recognition Committee

The Student Recognition Committee has been really busy this week recognizing our Student Athletes by decorating their lockers. Mrs. Shepherd, a member of the committee, stated that this was just the beginning of their plans to recognize the amazing accomplishments of the students at Central Middle School.

At Central Middle School, we celebrate the hard work and dedication of our student athletes. Students who participate in sports develop self-discipline, motivation, and leadership skills. We love seeing our Bobcats working hard and excelling in the classroom and on the field.

Please come cheer on your favorite Bobcat!

CMS won the regular season title and the tournament championship!

  • At yesterday's tournament, CMS shot a combined score of 176, while Powhatan shot a 187. Parker Allen was 1 over par, and shot a 37 for nine holes. He was 7 shots better than anyone else there. Brennan Evans was third in overall scoring. The tournament featured the following teams: CMS, Powhatan, Mecklenburg, Amelia
  • Tournament was held at Mill Quarter Country Club in Powhatan. The tournament almost resembled a pro event with so many parents and friends there. The golf course ran out of carts for people to ride...that's how many people were there. After the matches, everyone was served hot dogs, burgers, and sides. Powhatan did a nice job of hosting the event.
