Six weeks of school remain with three weeks of instruction prior to our yearly administration of the Georgia Milestones assessment. Please encourage your student to stay focused and be present each day!

We would like to say congratulations to our spring athletic teams! Soccer and Tennis have concluded strong seasons with girl's tennis being crowned region champions and boys' tennis region runner up. The CMS track teams are performing well and will conclude their season later this month.

The 8th grade dance will be held on Friday, May 6th. This year our PTC and student council have selected the theme "Denim and Diamonds". This event is for current Cartersville Middle School 8th grade students only! The dress code for this event follows closely to the school dress code. Tickets will be sold starting next week during lunch for $15 dollars each.

Go Canes!
