CCMS Principal's Letter - January 2021

Falcon Families, 

    Welcome to 2021; I hope you are as excited as we all are to begin a new year. Yes, we are still dealing with a pandemic; however, a new year always brings unique opportunities.  I hope that the holiday season was joyous and restful and that you spent all of the time you wished to spend with your family. 
    Construction here at CCMS is coming along nicely. The inside of the 1924 building looks very different than it did the last time we occupied it, and I am very excited to introduce all of our students to the new learning space.  We still anticipate moving into the remodeled building around Spring Break, and I will send more communication about this process as we get closer.
      Starting on Friday, January 15th, Cañon City Middle School will begin providing Friday help sessions to struggling students who are struggling.  These work sessions will be assigned by individual teachers for students who are falling behind.  Sessions will be held at two different times; early release Fridays will be from 1:30 until 3:30, and on no-school Fridays, the sessions will last from 8:00 am until noon.  If your student is assigned to one of these days, the teacher will contact you on Wednesday before the assigned day. These days are assigned as extra support to help ensure student success in this challenging school year. 
Middle School sports are set to begin soon; Mr. Braiden has been working with other athletic directors to develop guidelines. He will send out information as soon as things are finalized.  Boys Basketball will start on January 19th, and students will need to have a physical and all appropriate paperwork completed before that. Please reach out to the school if you have questions. 
I want to say thank you to all of the parents as we have reshaped our educational system and delivery methods to work in this school year's parameters.  This year has been a school year like no other, and your continued support of the staff and students of Cañon City Middle School is greatly appreciated.  If you would like to become a part of our PTO organization, please reach out to the school to receive the invitation.  

Thank you,

Jesse Oliver
