BEST of the BAND

Richard Santiago is a rising freshman, and placed 6th in the state out of all middle schooler alto saxophones. Richard is currently in 8th grade and is continuing to prove to be a stellar musician in his own right. These two students will be traveling to Furman University on March 11-13th to perform with the All-State ensembles. Please congratulate them on their impressive accomplishments!


Last night, the CMS Wildcats boys basketball team bounced back with a win of 29-25 against the Northside Knights after falling to them earlier in the season in the last seconds. Tre Aiken led the way with 8 points and added 3 blocks along the way. Chris Boyd and Owen Glenn both had 6 points. The Wildcats struggled to score all night long but their defense was outstanding. Chris Boyd, Owen Glenn, Angelo Cromer, and Javen Cook played tremendous defense to help the Wildcats secure a win. The Wildcats now have a record of 4-4. Way to go, Wildcats!

On Monday night, the Lady Wildcats travelled to Wright Middle School where they won 10-4. Standout players of the night included Nah’Shia Wright and Amirah Hill who played key roles offensively and defensively. On Thursday night, the Lady Wildcats hosted Northside Middle School and won 19-8. Kemaria Shelton played strong in the paint and had many key rebounds and put-backs. Te’Onna Bailey made her starting debut and did not disappoint! Bailey played strong defense throughout the game. Great job, Wildcats.

On Monday, January 31, both teams travel to Saluda Middle School. We can’t wait to see how they play!


We started distributing new chromebooks to students this week and will continue to do so over the next several days. We will collect their current chromebooks, cases, and chargers and provide them with a new device, a new case, and new charger. Students who do not return their chromebook along with the charger and case will not receive the new technology until they do so. Students that have outstanding fees due will not get the new technology until all fees are paid in full. The technology agreements signed at the beginning of the year will still be in effect. Please contact our Media Specialist, Jana Wood, at if you have questions.


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.
