Welcome Class of 2030 (& ALL new CMS students)

Hello Parents of the Class of 2030 (current 3rd graders!)

We loved visiting your students for lunch last month and having them join us to tour CMS, enjoy lunch and recess, and get to hear from current 4th graders and 6th graders!  Hopefully, they are as excited to come to CMS as we are to have them!  

Due to all that is going on with this crazy year, we decided to wait to host our parent information night closer to the start of the school year so you can remember the information that we present to you!  Our 4th Grade and New Student Parent Information Night will be held on Wednesday, August 11th at 6:00pm in the LGIR at Chardon Middle School. We will send a reminder and more details as the date gets closer, but please mark your calendars now!  

Some other important pieces of information for you to be aware of for the 2021-22 school year:

School supplies lists for the 21-22 school year are posted on the CMS website HERE.  

Teacher Assignments for the 21-22 school year will be posted to Infinite Campus on Wednesday, August 11.  If you do not know how to access Infinite Campus, please contact your current elementary building main office now so that you are all set.  All CMS communication is electronic through Infinite Campus and the District's BlackBoard Communication system (which pulls from Infinite Campus).  

Back-2-School Bash.  SAVE THE DATE!  Tentatively planned for Friday, August 13 - more details to come!  When your students arrive for the bash, students will be able to access their assigned classroom to drop-off materials.  THIS IS NOT REQUIRED!  They can also bring them in slowly over the first few day of school, as well.    

4th Grade Summer Reading assignments have been posted in the students' grade-level google classroom, as well as on the CMS website.  

Students have received an invite to join their grade-level classroom, and 3rd grade teachers have directed them to accept the invite.  The vast majority of students have already joined, but if a student still has not joined the grade-level classroom, they should do the following when logged in to their CLSD account: 

  • go to
  • Click the “+” on the top right of the screen
  • Click “join class”
  • Enter the class code: m22e3qw   

A copy of the assignment can also be accessed by clicking HERE.  

If a parent or student is eager to continue to learn more about CMS, here are few links that were used during the 20-21 school year of  to share information.  Please note these are not updated for next year, but provide a good general overview of information for those eager to learn more about CMS!
