Dear CMS Students,

It is our daily expectation that you come to school, try your best, and be your best! We do our very best to be the best teachers and administrators that we can be to ensure you are safe and successful.

Our three Core Values are Perseverance, Responsibility, and Integrity. These Core Values are meant to shape and inspire you by providing common expectations for how you should act as citizens in the school community, our town, our state, and country, in the world. Be an example to others; think about how you represent and carry out our three Core Values and think about how you want to be remembered.

Our goal is to create a learning environment culture that is engaging, motivating, challenging, and relevant, to help prepare all students for success in 21st-century skills and life. Throughout the year you will be engaging in various academic tasks that will prepare you for college and careers. You will continue to write across content areas, read and analyze rigorous text, and build knowledge throughout the different content areas. In math and science, you will engage in experiences that promote conceptual understanding, critical thinking, and making meaning of the content. All we want of you is to complete all of your work on time, try your hardest, and persevere through anything that is challenging. We expect you to ask for help if you need it, share your expertise with others, and offer solutions that could benefit all as we are here to learn together. School is what you make of it so take advantage of it and use it as your vehicle for success today and tomorrow.

You can learn and grow from your mistakes. It is important to know that it is okay to fail only if you learn from it quickly, try again, and move forward. Remember one thing; you count at Chariho Middle School!
