BEST of the BAND

8th grader, Richard Santiago, has been selected to the All State Band as unofficially the 6th chair alto saxophone member. Results will not be official until Saturday, February 5th. This is a great accomplishment for Richard. He will attend the All State Band Clinic at Furman University in March and play under the baton of Mrs. Liz Love from Grisham Middle School, Grisham, Texas. Congratulations, Richard!


On Monday night, the Lady Wildcats travelled to Saluda where they won 28-9. The girls brought their best game and dominated the entire time. Standout players of the game were Amirah Hill, Kemaria Shelton, and Alana Jackson.

The Wildcats boys basketball team won on Monday night against Saluda by a score of 45-33. Chris Boyd set a new career high with 22 points. Jaydon Glenn added 8 points and Tre Aiken added 7 points along with 5 blocks. The Wildcats started the first half off with strong defensive pressure and that was all it took for the Wildcats to get the win.

On Thursday night, the Wildcats lost a close game against an undefeated Brewer team. This was the closest game that Brewer has had all year long. The final score was 37-28. The Wildcats got off to a rough start in the first half, but came roaring back in the second half. The Wildcats were led in scoring by Chris Boyd followed by Tre Aiken and Tanner Finley.

The Wildcats will finish their season next week with two road games. The boys and girls play Monday night at Westview in Greenwood and Thursday night at McCormick. We can’t wait to see how they play!


Now that the weather has become a little colder we thought you might be interested in purchasing a CMS Wildcats Hoodie (or T-shirt because we all hope that it warms up just a little). The Hoodies are a great way to show support for our students and stay warm while attending winter sports. We have sizes available ranging from Adult Small to Adult 3XL (currently we are out of Mediums in Hoodies). Hoodies cost $20.00 and the T-shirts cost $10.00. If you would like to purchase one please click on the link to complete the attached Order Form and bring payment to Mrs. Wood in the Library. Cash and Checks made payable to CMS are accepted. Sizes are available on a first come first serve basis.


Save the dates!! The CMS Spring Book Fair is coming to town on February 18-25! You can click on the link to visit the CMS Book Fair Website. There is information about what you can find at the in person fair and on the virtual fair. All orders made online will be shipped to your home. There are no shipping fees if your order is over $25. Go to the website to set up an eWallet. This is a great way to let kids shop and not worry about them losing their cash. Any money not spent at the fair will be credited back to the person’s credit card that set the eWallet up. Additionally, the fair can accept payment in the form of cash, credit card, debit card, eWallets, or checks made out to CMS. Fliers will be going home a week before the fair. More information will be coming in the next few weeks. In the meantime, check out the Book Fair Website and start planning your purchases.
