We made it through another year, Cyclones!!!!  Have a great summer and stay safe.  Don't forget to read at least two books and complete two projects to turn in on the first day of school in August for your first ELA grade.  The requirements are available in the article below or at the school or district office.  Make it fun!!
Free Books! Free Reading!
May 21st.  It's not summer yet, but it is the beginning of the Chester County School District's Summer Reading Program.  Students are being given a FREE BOOK OF THEIR CHOICE along with the requirements (click here) for the program and how to interact with others in the district through Edmodo (click here).  The two required book projects will be the first ELA grades for students in August!  The projects are due on the first day of school.  (GT students have other requirements too.)  It's a great day to be at CMS and in CCSD!

From the Desk of the Principal


Seasons' Greetings, to my CMS Family.  It is hard to believe--we are already half-way into the second nine weeks, and the first semester is rapidly coming to an end.  We are still excited about the opportunity to work with the children and families of the Chester Community.  Please know that our students are our number one priority, and it is our goal to make sure that your child is successful.  In order for this to happen, there must be a constant line of communication between the school and the home.  All teachers provide extra help sessions, and we strongly encourage your child to attend as regularly as needed. 

We also encourage parents to stay abreast of their child's grades through the Parent Portal feature of the PowerSchool webpage.  If you have not already received your unique password and login, please come by the school so that we may assist you in this effort.  We take pride in our responsiveness to your needs, and we hope that we will continue to work for the benefit of all children.  Thank you for all you do for Chester Middle School.  "Whatever It Takes.  Every Child, Every Day. No Excuses!"
