It was a great week at CHMS with Panthers spirit abounding. I sure hope that Monday we are celebrating a win but either way it has been a heck of a ride and a team of which we can all be proud! Keep Pounding!!
Someone else we can be proud of at CHMS is our very own 6th grade student, Erin Jun. Erin won the Doodle 4 Google award for the entire state of North Carolina. Her doodle is now on display for votes across the country. If hers is the winner Erin will receive a $30,000 scholarship AND Community House will receive $50,000 for technology purchases. Voting runs now through February 22. Erin's doodle is under the 6-7 grade category...hers has a swimmer diving in the "G." Please log on and
vote for Erin!!
Finally, our last basketball game of the season is Monday night at CHMS. Boys play at 5:00PM and girls at 6:00PM. The student/staff game will be Friday February 12 immediately after school. Come out and support the teams!!
Have a great weekend,

CMS Survey - Closes February 22
The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Board of Education is seeking your input to help decide how students in Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools (CMS) are assigned to schools. The survey is designed to gain valuable feedback on what’s important to you as you consider your child’s education or public education overall. Survey results will be used to inform any changes to the district's student assignment plan, which would take effect in the 2017-2018 school year.
