On Thursday, November 8 from 5 p.m to 7 p.m. CMS will be hosting Parent Literacy Night.

Chilhowee Middle School faculty and students would like to thank everyone who helped with the tumbler fundraiser. We are now over half way toward our goal for purchasing the new awning. The tumblers will be arriving this week. We are still taking Boxtops, and that money will also go toward the awning purchase. You may send Boxtops by a student or drop them off at the front office.  

On Thursday, November 8 from 5 p.m to 7 p.m. CMS will be hosting Parent Literacy Night.  Faculty will be discussing Common Core in ELA, and they will also review the Classworks Program that CMS is using this year for enrichment and intervention. The Book Fair will also be open for parents to visit and purchase books. We will begin at 5 p.m. and refreshments will be served. At the end of the literacy and Classworks training, there will be a drawing for a door prize. You must be present to win.  All parents are encouraged to attend.  

The November Chilhowee Middle School Newsletter was sent home by students this past week. The newsletter will be sent home monthly and will provide a calendar of events and special news. You may also follow school events by going to polk-schools.com and clicking on the CMS link.
