November Principal's Message

Falcon Families,
I am very excited about the start of our new school year. CCMS has been a bustling place with our new curriculum, 1:1 Chromebooks, and the construction of our new building. I have observed many great things from the amazing teachers and students who come through our doors every day.
Students are about two weeks into the second quarter, and before we know it approaching Thanksgiving Break. Take some time with your students this month and maybe over Thanksgiving Break to walk through the instructional platforms they are using this year, such as Schoology, Pearson, IXL, and iLit. Your ability as a parent to understand the learning platforms they are using will only increase the success of your child. Stay warm this month, and please reach out if you need anything from the staff or administration at CCMS.
Jesse Oliver
Principal, Canon City Middle School
