Cimarron Middle School Newsletter - April 6, 2019
Colts Chronicle provides information to parents, students, staff, and community.
Dear Cimarron Families,
At Cimarron Middle School, teachers and students strive to intentionally focus on relationships and interpersonal connections through our interactions. This can be seen in how we structure our learning environment, plan lessons, and model positive relationships through our teaching and learning. Our focus on relationships allows our school community to thrive. Middle school students navigate the social and emotional aspects of growing into a well rounded individual each day. As students connect with their parents, teachers and community, their growth opportunities increase. Take some time to consider your child's avenues for building and developing relationships that are both meaningful and encouraging to them. As summer approaches, consider supporting your child with getting involved in opportunities that will get them connected with some of the amazing people in our community! Arts, athletics, and recreational opportunities all offer great opportunities for our middle school students to develop meaningful connections with others as they grow into the person they were created to be!

Counselor 4 Prevention Survey
This year our Counselors for Prevention at Cimarron, Sagewood, and Sierra partnered together to provide the Healthy Teen Series for families. Fourteen topics were presented at various times (evening and day sessions) that addressed social/emotional skills as well as substance use prevention.
The topics chosen were a direct result from the needs assessment previously given to parents as well as the feedback on surveys at each presentation. We value your input and would like to continue to provide you with timely, informative presentations that suit our community’s needs for the 2019-20 school year.
