Welcome to the "new" Chardon Middle School, where we strive for high achievement for all students and learning is our most important work.  At CMS, we are Caring, Mindful and Solution-focussed.  We provide a safe, caring and supportive environment where all students are able to develop academically, socially and emotionally.  As principal, I have the honor and pleasure to work with outstanding students, staff and parents to create this environment and ensure a successful future for all of our students. I do not take this responsibility lightly, and am honored that we are entrusted with the Chardon Schools communities’ most valuable resources – your children. 

Hopefully, you're children continue to be as excited about attending the "new" CMS as they were at their visits in May!  Their enthusiasm as they learned about all that we had planned for them was contagioius and made us even more eager to open the "new" 4-7 middle school for the 18-19 school year!  Just a reminder of a few of the things that we have planned for the "new" CMS: 

  • Recess for students in all grades
  • DARE for 5th and 7th graders
  • New Chromebooks for students in 6th and 7th grades (classroom Chromebook carts will continue in 4th and 5th grades)
  • Expanded "special" offerrings including: 
    • STEM
    •  Coding
    • World Cultures
    • World Languages
    • 5th grade Band and Choir a minimum of 3 times weekly AND within the school day!   

We are excited to welcome your students in a few weeks!  Please be sure to follow our CMS Twitter feed (@ChardonMS) and stay enrolled in our Blackboard Connect messages to recieve information about all that is happening at CMS!
