Principal's Points

August 2017

Greetings CMS Families,

Welcome to Conyers Middle School, the home of the Bulldogs! 

2017-18 is destined to be an incredible year of teaching, learning, and growing.

As your Principal, I am grateful and excited to serve our CMS families and community. Conyers Middle School is committed to our pursuit of global excellence. In concert with the vision and mission of our Superintendent, we will ensure student success through a world-class education with advanced opportunities and personalized support for ALL.

Through the active theories of cultivating strong, healthy relationships, employing rigorous, research-based instructional strategies, promoting the total development of the whole child, and fostering a climate of college and career ready scholars, we are committed to engineering excellence for every face, every place, in every way, every day!.

As we enter this new school year and embrace the power of our purpose, our dedicated faculty & staff will be engaging in conversations around having a growth mindset, both for ourselves and all students. We believe that every person should always be growing and learning. Overcoming challenges that may arise, further ignites our belief that we must always believe in our ability to rise above obstacles and come out stronger on the other end. As an aerospace engineering school, we echo Henry Ford’s message that that the airplane takes off against the wind, not with it. We are in flight!

Our Title 1 Curriculum Night will be held on August 24th from 5:30-7:00 p.m. We extend a warm welcome to each of you. This will be an instructional event designed to share with you our academic focus, school improvement plan, and ways to help us expand your parental engagement experiences. We will begin the evening with sharing with you our comprehensive needs assessment, Title 1 plans/commitments, and a Q & A session for families. From there, we will transition into the content and connections courses and end our event with an evaluation of our evening. Our goal is to have 80% of our families in attendance. Your presence is key to our progress and partnership. 

The physical, academic, emotional, and social safety of your children is our top priority, and we will always do everything we can to keep our students safe, healthy, learning, and happy. We encourage your conversations and support in helping us. As always, please feel free to contact us with any questions, compliments, or concerns.

As always, we invite you to visit and volunteer at our school, follow us on Twitter, send us an email, and keep us in your best thoughts. You are the difference in our success.

Valuing your partnership,

Allison
