Attention Skateboarders: Because of safety issues, you are not allowed to skateboard on school grounds or sidewalks surrounding the school.  If you are skating in these areas, your skateboard will be taken and a parent will be required to pick it up. Thank you for helping us keep CMS a safe place.


A Blue Zone Activity will be held the last hour of school May 17.  Students will have a choice of soccer, volleyball, or walking outside, dodgeball or knockout in the gym. To participate, students can turn in $3 or 3 bottles of water, OR 3 canned food items to the cafeteria during morning program or the last 10 minutes of school. The collection takes place through Friday, May 13. Students who do not donate will go to the cafeteria during the Blue Zone Event and have a choice of reading or doing homework. Money donations will go to the Humane Society and food and water donations will go to the homeless shelter.


SLG is challenging all CMS students to bring in non-perishable and canned food to help the Muscatine Food Pantry.  The food pantry receives many donations during the holidays, but they still need donations for the summer months.  Bring your donations to your 1st period class from now until May 24th.  Your 1st period teacher will be keeping track of who brings in the most cans.  The top 10 students will be throwing a pie in the face of a teacher.  Start bringing in your donations!!

For Parent/Teacher Announcements:


College 4 Kids as a special offering for the current 8th grade students.  We are asking if any student who is a leader in your class would be interested in volunteering for C4K?  Students could earn 40 silver cord hours during this two week period.  They would be able to add those hours toward their high school hours as a volunteer.

You could send me an email and I would be happy to send them the information or ask the student to contact me at for more information.  Also students can stop down and see me as well.

C4K will be held at Jefferson & Central this year from June 13-24.

I have added the website so all can see what is offered and how they might help with younger students.


Due to the fact that the last day of school has been changed to May 26, the 8th grade Recognition Day has been rescheduled for Wednesday, May 25 from 12-1 in the school auditorium. You are welcome to celebrate this special day. Auditorium doors will open at 11:30.  See you there.

New Boundary Look Up Tool Available!

Posted: 15 Mar 2016 08:55 AM PDT

There is now a new “boundary” lookup tool for parents to use for determining which school a certain address “should” attend. It’s very easy and intuitive. (It DOES NOT indicate whether a student should ride the bus or walk.)



  • To use it full screen click the “full screen” button in the upper right-hand corner of the map interface.
  • You can use the sprocket icon to choose which “layers” are shown. By default only the district layer is shown, but you can change that to elementary boundaries, middle school etc.
  • When you search an address it will show you which elementary, middle school and high school (only one choice) that address should attend.
  • You can also click the directions and it will use google maps to plot walking or driving directions from the home to the school
