From Principal Huckabee

Hello CMS Family,

Monday, August 15, we welcome our 7th grade students and families to our building from 4:00PM to 6:00PM for Eagle Expo. This is a drop-in-style event with informational sessions at 4:15PM, repeated at 5:15PM. Although this event is geared toward 7th grade students, if you have an 8th grade student who is new to CMS, you are welcome to attend.

Tuesday, August 16, we officially kick off the 22-23 school year! Your student may enter the building as early as 8:00AM. Our first class begins at 8:30AM and our last class is released at 3:30PM.

Please ensure that your student knows his or her first block class as we will have printed schedules waiting for them with first block teachers. Students only need to bring a pen or pencil and some paper for the first day of school. Our first day is designed to help our students build their confidence from day one as we provide tours, review expectations, distribute IDs, and answer their questions about how to be successful in middle school.

A few quick tips concerning our car line are as follows:

  • Double stacking in the mornings begins at 7:45 AM.
  • Cars are not allowed to drop off or pick up students in our staff parking lot.
  • Please pull all the way forward in the car line following the car in front of you to help us get everyone in and out as safely and quickly as possible.
  • Do not look for your child in the afternoon. They are looking for you. Keep pulling forward to follow the car in front of you. Your child will walk to the car.
  • Once your child has exited or entered your vehicle safely, you may pull to the left lane to exit the car line.
  • Students should enter and exit the vehicle from the passenger side only.

We ask that you confirm end-of-day transportation plans with your student. If you need a bus number or pick-up and drop-off times, please email

Wednesday, August 17, students should arrive on campus with IDs properly displayed and their fully charged Chromebooks.

We are Respectful, Responsible, and Remarkable!

We aRe Chapin!
Stephanie Huckabee
