MyOn Minutes Matter Contest Winners

CMS students know that reading for 20 minutes a day can have profound effects on their learning.  Using the program MyOn reader, students can be matched with books that are selected to maximize the positive effects.  Plus, reading on MyOn can win your students great prizes.  This month students won a gift certificate for a free Chik-fil-a biscuit.   

Every hour that a student reads on MyOn is an entry into our MyOn minutes matter contest for the month.  The more you read the better your chances of winning.  Congratulations to this month's winners!  


CMS School Council

Administrators, teachers, parents, and community representatives meet on Tuesday mornings several times during the school year. This group provides advice and recommendations related to student achievement and school improvement.  Community members are seeking ways to boost parental involvement at CMS. Contact Parent Involvement Coordinator, Ms. Lauren Rose, if you have any suggestions at lrose@polk.k12.ga.us.


CMS Career Fair

The annual Career Day was held for 6th and 7th grades on April 2nd. Our goal at CMS is to introduce many  different career choices to our students. Our students are the next generation of employees in the ever-changing working world. Presenters had the opportunity to interact and answer questions about their careers and educational background. Students rotated through 38 stations where they explored various career options.   We are excited to have among them our partners in education, Hon and Jefferson Southern.   We also had The Fire Department, GA Forestry, The GBI, Life Force and Floyd EMT hosting outdoor sessions with their trucks.  CMS is grateful to all volunteers and organizers!
