Parents, thank you for your support as we continue throughout this school year. Despite the negative publicity we received this week, great things are happening at Chapel Hill MS. As a school family, we need your assistance with speaking with your child daily regarding making good choices and decisions, appropriate use of cellphones, and receiving items from other students. With your help, we will continue to strive for academic excellence and remain instructionally focused. Again, thank you for the support you have provided this school year. ONE TEAM, ONE GOAL, NO LIMITS and HGH EXPECTATIONS ALWAYS!
