    Happy Friday CMS Families,

    This has been one of those rare weeks where I can honestly say it’s been pretty quiet at CMS.  In turn, this letter will be relatively short.  As you know, students spent the week writing essays in an effort to prepare them for the upcoming CAASPP test.  Testing in this manner really helps prepare our students for the rigor and format of the CAASPP testing and helps contribute to the excellent achievement scores CMS has traditionally enjoyed on the state assessments in ELA.  These essays are also used as benchmarks for our teachers who will use data from these essay results to guide instruction over the upcoming weeks in an effort to strengthen writing skills prior to the CAASPP testing window in late April.  We appreciate the efforts our students put in this week and we’re excited to see how well they perform on the upcoming state assessments. 

    Spring sports got underway this week with our tennis and track teams already starting competition.  Wrestling has their first meet on Saturday and our golfers will be hitting the links soon.  It looks like we’ve moved past some of the rain and spring may just stick around long enough for us to get in some outdoor athletics.  Keep your fingers crossed for nice weather from here on out!

    The CMS Bob Show:  In a shocking turn from past practice, we did not sell out our Bob Show in the first day or even the first week.  In fact, we’ve got around 300 tickets remaining. Speculation is that folks just don’t know exactly what the Bob Show is.  It’s really kind of hard to explain, but our teachers put together a variety of skits, impressions, goofy dances, and crazy costumes that will have you laughing all night.  As I’ve mentioned before, we typically sell out the 400 available seats that we have, so get your tickets to this program as soon as you can and help support our relationship with Rise Against Hunger!  The show takes place this Friday, March 22nd with doors opening at 5:30.  Popcorn, treats, and drinks will all be for sale for this one of a kind evening! We’ve even recruited our Superintendent! For a glimpse of Bob Show highlights, please follow these links:

    Pi Day Championship: The Great Pi Recital on Thursday (3/14) turned out five students who could recite over 130 random digits of the irrational number. Kaitlyn Myrick reached 133; Colin Dowse recited 151; Marcus Reagor took 2nd place with 156 digits. There was an unprecedented tie for first place with both Bella Davi and Elisabeth Hess memorizing 222 random digits. The school record, set by CHS Junior Sebastian Hendricks, still stands at 338 decimal places.

    Daylight Savings Begins on Sunday – Make sure you turn your clocks back one hour!

    Happy Friday CMS Families!

    Welcome to the 3rd and final trimester of the 2018-19 school year!

    The opening week of the third trimester was fantastic and we have several programs and events worth talking about.  Before we jump into that, second trimester report cards were mailed home on Wednesday  and should be arriving soon (maybe today!).  Please note, there is a change in the report card format and report cards will now be arriving in white envelopes instead of the perforated mailings previously used.

    District Choral Festival: On Thursday night we kicked off Music Appreciation Month with the district’s choral festival.  This program showcases the choral talents of students from our elementary school through our high school and is nothing short of spectacular.  CMS was well represented on Thursday night as our three groups, the Concert Choir, Boys Choir, and our Chamber Choir performed a total of six fantastic songs.  The concert finale featured a combination of all students belting out the hit song, “This is Me” from The Greatest Showman to the thunderous applause of an enraptured audience.  Congratulations to Mr. Lehmkuhl and all his students for another fantastic performance!

    Next up, the district Band Festival on Tuesday, March 26th at 7:00 pm at the Sunset Center. 

    She Hikes Program Kicks off Inaugural Adventure: Undaunted by the forecast of 100% chance of heavy rain, thirteen CMS girls headed out last Friday morning for a backpacking excursion into the Arroyo Seco Gorge. The trip was run by the Ventana Wilderness Alliance.  After a busy day of hiking, learning Leave No Trace camping skills, racing "boats" in the river, building fire from flint, filtering water for drinking, cooking on a camp stove in the wind, and enjoying an evening fire with the requisite s'mores and scary stories, everyone was zipped up in their tents before the rain began. The morning delivered more rain and plenty of rainbows as the intrepid travelers hiked back along the gorge to the district vans.  The brave and hearty student crew included Emma Heiser, Emma Hart, Rose and Marie Mathews, Leslie Gonzlez Padilla, Daisy Duena Paz, Riley Teague, Marina Hobson, Bella Davi, Lili Menkal, Aria Moya, Sonoma Poole, Hannah Winans-Raymond, Mrs. Krislyn and Mrs. Thompson.

    Many thanks to Mrs. Thompson and Mrs. Krislyn for taking on this adventure and starting program that we hope will thrive here at CMS!  For our female students, if you are interested in this type of adventuring, stay tuned for the next She Hikes Program!

    The CMS Bob Show: Tickets go on sale Monday, March 11th: We’re just two weeks away from the show everyone’s waited three years for… the CMS Bob Show!  Tickets may be purchased in our office with cash or check beginning Monday, March 11th.  Checks should be made out to CMS ASB.  Tickets must be purchased in person and are sold on a first come, first served basis.  Due to gym capacity, only 400 tickets will be sold.  We cannot reserve tickets based on phone calls or email.  Tickets cost $10 per person.  This event has sold out in one day in previous years, so if you’d like to attend, please make arrangements to get your tickets early!

    PTO Sponsors Flex Furniture Purchase with Serve-A-Thon Money – Last year we outfitted one 6th grade mathematics classroom with state of the art flexible furniture and write-on desks.  Reports from Mrs. Mayer, the teacher who piloted this program, have been exceptionally positive and we have had numerous requests from CMS teachers to move away from the traditional “sled style” desks to the more versatile flex versions.  With the support of our PTO I’m happy to announce that we will be funding the transition to flex furniture in 7 classrooms next year with an additional 3 rooms adding components of this furniture to their existing layout.  Our PTO sponsored this project to the tune of $35K and we are excited and thankful for the opportunity to implement furniture that will change and enhance the manner in which students learn and collaborate.  Thanks again to our PTO for this phenomenal level of support and thanks to all of you for your support of the Serve-A-Thon, allowing us to enhance opportunities for all our students!

    Announcements

    Due to Interim ELA Assessments Next Week CMS will be on a block schedule Monday through Thursday.  Friday is the only day we will be on our regular schedule.  See Attached Bell Schedule.

    2019-2020 East Coast Trip: The deadline to register for next year’s East Coast Trip is March 20th!  If your interested but need further information, please contact Kris Lehman at 831-333-6338 or pick up an information packet in the office.

    Save Energy, Earn Money and Prizes! The CMS Environmental Club would like to thank our Ohm Connect Team members who have saved 35 kilowatt hours-enough electricity to power a refridgerator for a whole month! Together we have earned $550. As a school community, we have a unique opportunity to make an even bigger difference with more team members! Information on how to sign up for the free energy-saving Ohm Connect program can be found on MySchool on the Environmental Club page or contact Mrs. Chupka for more information on how to help preserve our ocean while saving energy, making money, and having fun!

    3.3.19

    Happy Sunday Morning CMS Families!

    We wrapped up the second trimester of our school year with a fantastic week and there are several events highlighted below worth noting.  Read on for more!

    CMS Wins California Distinguished School Award! Early this week Carmel Middle School was honored to be named a California Distinguished School.  A California Distinguished School is an award given by the California State Board of Education to public schools within the state that best represent exemplary and quality educational programs. Only about five percent of California schools are awarded this honor each year following a selection process.  Congratulations to CMS faculty, students and families! Also worth noting, CHS and CUSD have been awarded the California Distinguished School and Distinguished District Awards!

    Thursday’s Gathering:  Thursday’s Gathering was remarkable.  Kiara Hinze, our 7th grade student who has been battling cancer, provided our student body with an informative, emotional, and inspiring presentation on her battle and journey.  Her presentation featured a series of frequently asked questions and answers, photos from her experience, and an opportunity for students to ask questions directly to Kiara and the representatives from Jacob’s Heart.  For me, this gathering was both powerful and inspirational, and it was wonderful to see Kiara discuss her challenging fight in such an open way.  As a final note, our student body was absolutely the best behaved group of students I have seen at a Gathering during my eight years at CMS and I am extremely happy with the respect and appreciation shown to Kiara by our students during this presentation.  Thank you to everyone, and special thanks to Kiara for her continued bravery and courage!

    Boys Basketball Championships: Thursday night brought some incredible excitement as both the 7th Grade and 8th Grade Boys teams traveled to Buena Vista Middle School to participate in this year’s Boys Basketball Championship Games.  It is rare to have the opportunity to win championships at two levels in the same sport, but what unfolded on Thursday night was simply remarkable.  Both teams won their respective championship games in dramatic fashion with come from behind victories. The 7th grade boys displayed heart and resilience throughout the game and absolutely locked up the Buena Vista 7th grade team defensively in the second half while overcoming a double digit deficit to secure the championship.  The 8thgrade team played one of the most exciting games I have ever witnessed taking their first lead of the contest with about 30 seconds left in the game on a three point shot by Jack Norman.  Down 11 points going into the fourth quarter, the 8th grade boys played the final 7 minutes with the heart of champions and in a game that displayed the true meaning of team work, were able to pull out the win in the last 30 seconds of the contest. 

    Talking with parents after both games it was evident that families and athletes appreciated and valued the messages Coach Glazier and his staff preached all year… that hard work, team work, and trusting one another can lead to amazing accomplishments.  Congratulations to Coach Glazier and all our student athletes for a fantastic finish to the season!

     

    Mayhem Poets Show: A special thanks is owed to the folks at the Sunset Center who recently contacted us with a wonderful opportunity… 230 tickets to the Mayhem Poets Show!  Our 8th grade class was selected to take advantage of this opportunity and those who attended the program on Friday came back to school raving about the program.  The show was edgy, funny, serious, and really cool and we hope it helped connect our students to the subject matter currently being explored in our 8th Grade Language Arts Classes.  Thanks again to the Sunset Center for providing us with this exceptional opportunity!

    End of the 2nd Trimester: Maybe I buried the lead a bit here, but with the great things described above I couldn’t help myself!  We’re now 2/3rds of the way through the school year!  Hard to believe how fast the time is passing.  Report cards will be on their way soon (we’ll let you know when we send them).  As we move into the third trimester, please remind your student to continue working hard AND to continue displaying positive citizenship.  The final trimester often brings with it some interesting decision making at the middle school level (usually when the sun returns) and we want to make sure our students help take care of our school and each other by making positive choices for the remainder of the school year! 

    The Bob Show: Behind the scenes our staff has been working hard… dusting off their hidden comedic talents and preparing outrageous skits, dances, impersonations, and more for this month’s upcoming Bob Show.  Tickets will go on sale soon, so pay attention because you don’t want to miss this great night of shocking performances and laughter.  Come out and see a side of your teachers you never imagined! Bob Show proceeds will be used to continue our relationship with Rise Against Hunger, and organization committed to providing food around the globe to people in need.  Keep your eyes open for upcoming ticket sales!

    That’s it for this week.  Monday we start the third trimester!  Enjoy the rest of your Sunday!

    2.15.19

    Happy Friday CMS Families!

    We hope you made it safely through the crazy weather that hit us again this week! 

    This letter will be pretty short as we head into a week off, but there are a few announcements below that you’ll want to be aware of.  We hope that you have a fantastic week off and enjoy some quality time with family and friends.  School will resume on Monday, February 25th

    SportsNet Sign Ups Extended: Due to the power outage we will be extending the deadline for SportsNet sign ups.  If your student would like to participate in Wrestling, Tennis, Golf, or Track and Field, please make sure that they are signed up on SportsNet prior to Saturday, February 16, at 5:00 PM.  We are unable to extend the deadline further as the processing of all student athletes takes considerable time and effort on the part of our athletic department. 

    Spring Sports:

     

    Start Dates:  Track and Field - March 4th 3:00 – 4:15

                           Wrestling - March 6th  3:00 Informational Meeting

                           Tennis  - March 4th  3:15 – 5:15 Students with last names A-L

                                           March 5th  3:15 – 5:15 Students with last names M-Z

                            Golf - TBD

     

    Please check our website for updates!

     

    One Week Left in Trimester 2: The 2nd Trimester ends on Friday, March 1st (our first Friday back from break).  If your student has anything to catch up on, the week off is a great time to take care of any assignments teachers will accept.  With only five school days left in the Trimester upon our return to school, please take a few moments to review your student’s Aeries progress over the break and make plans to take care of any missing or late assignments.  If you’re student is doing well, make sure to compliment them on their hard work and encourage them to keep it up for one more week!

    The CMS Bob Show:  Our next student/family social event is the CMS Bob Show.  Back after a two year absence, this variety show is kind of like a school appropriate version of Saturday Night Live.  Come see the CMS Staff make fun of themselves and everything else in a night that’s short on talent but big on laughs.  Tickets will go on sale in early March and profits go to support our partnership with Rise Against Hunger, an organization providing meals for people in impoverished areas around the world.  The show is scheduled for Friday, March 22, at 6:00 in the CMS Gym.  You won’t want to miss it!

    SS/History Materials Adoption:  In 2018 the California State Board of Education adopted new materials for use in K-8 History-Social Science.  Subsequently, each district engaged in a review process to select the best materials for their specific district. The 6-8 History-Social Science Adoption Committee has completed their review of materials and is excited to recommend the following for adoption: National Geographic- California Social Studies Program.  Copies of student materials are available for review in the front office at Carmel Middle School and at the District Curriculum & Instruction Office through March 1st.  The Board of Education will consider the adoption of the new materials at the March 13, 2019 Board meeting.  The newly adopted materials will then be implemented schoolwide in the 2019-2020 school year.  

    Attention World Travelers! Would you like to go to Costa Rica with other students and families from CUSD?  There will be an informational meeting for a non school sponsored trip to Costa Rica on Wednesday, February 27, at 6 pm at CHS in room 10.  Contact Tricia Bean at tbean@carmelunified.org for more information.
