  • CMS STUDENTS PRESENT ARTWORK TO BAND STUDENTS
    Ms. Syrie's art students created three large paintings and presented them to Mr. Foster's band students.  They got their inspiration from the two songs the band has played or will play this year - "Drums of Daruma" and "Legend of the Nighthawk."  In art class they listened to both songs several times, the students chose one to represent visually, and then collaborated with each other to blend separate images into a full-size painting on a canvas banner.  Now band students can enjoy these beautiful works of art on the walls of their band room!

  • CMS VERSUS WMS SPIRIT EVENT
    Basketball teams from both middle schools participated in a wonderful spirit event, including the announcement of players at the beginning of the game and a half-time shootout for the fans in the stands. The score, the winner and the loser at each grade level were not important - it was about team building and having fun! These girls will all be joining forces in the next 1 to 2 years when they become Blackhawks!

  • NATIONAL BOARD CERTIFIED TEACHER EMILY HAM HONORED
    Salnave Elementary School teacher Emily Ham was honored by the School Board at their meeting on January 27.  She recently obtained National Board Certification, and this official designation is the culmination of a tremendous amount of study, time and effort.  Ms. Ham joins 44 other district teachers who previously obtained their certification.  They worked hard to reach this goal, and our students receive the benefit.  Altogether, over 12% of the district's teachers are now National Board Certified - a larger percentage than the average in districts throughout Washington State - and Washington State continues to place near the top of the country in National Board Certified teachers.  More information concerning the National Board Certification program can be seen here.

  • CHS STUDENT MARIAH GILBERT IS AMAZING!
    KREM 2 and STCU showcases kids who are making a positive impact in their community every year through Credit 2 Kids. Award winners receive $500 which they then donate to school programs of their choice. Mariah Gilbert was honored because she used monies she earned working at Betz, a private facility, and in recycling at CHS to buy less fortunate families Christmas presents. Mariah is an extremely polite, considerate, and hard-working student who truly cares about others. When KREM 2 came to CHS, they interviewed Ms. McGourin about her exemplary student.
