Reminder to parents- Reports will no longer be sent home with students.  The end of the second quarter is January 24 and final grades will be posted by the end of school on Friday, January 31.  Please log onto PowerSchool after that time to view your child’s grades.  Grades can be printed under the Grade History tab.  

-National Junior Honor Society Students are coordinating an amazing recycling program at Chariho Middle School in conjunction with Crayola. It’s called Crayola Color Cycle – devised to repurpose used markers rather than sending them to landfills! The Crayola Color Cycle program has repurposed more than 70 tons of expended markers in the United States and Canada since 2013, and uses the most advanced plastic conversion technologies available today to make wax compounds for asphalt and roofing shingles as well as to generate electricity that can be used to heat homes, cook food, and power vehicles. Throughout the year NJHS Students will be collecting used markers. Please help support our efforts by sending your old dried out markers, highlighters and dry erase markers (even non-Crayola brands) into school with your child. Drop-off boxes will be located around the school for your child to deposit the markers. Thank you for supporting us in turning markers into energy! Mrs. Sousa

-Peanut/Tree nut free school- Peanut/Tree nut free school- CMS is a completely peanut/tree nut free school. We request that anyone entering CMS, not bring any peanut/tree nut products into the school. If a student brings in a peanut/tree nut product and it has not been opened, we will request that the student bring the product to their locker and home at the end of the day. If the student has opened the product during snack or lunch, we will request that the student throw the product away. A substitute food item will be offered. We will not be inspecting snack/lunches or reviewing ingredients. We also, will not be restricting items that may have been produced in a factory that may not be peanut/tree nut free.  Some classrooms may require further actions such as hand washing, etc. Students in these rooms will receive additional directions and support for the safety of all students. Due to allergies, we ask that you reinforce with your children that no one should share food items.

-Submit your photos for the yearbook! The yearbook staff invites students and parents to submit photos for the yearbook. If you’ve got great photos of school events, we’d like to see them!
