Welcome to an exciting new year at Cambridge Middle School. I look forward to working with you in partnership to achieve our goals in developing proficient learners, increasing student achievement, and building a safe, healthy school community.
As Principal of Cambridge Middle school, I would like to welcome you to our building website. This website has been prepared in the hope that it will become a valuable resource providing you with school news and information. This website has been developed to enable everyone to become familiar with our school, its policies, and other procedures.
As demands of teaching children increase, it becomes more evident that we all need to work together to insure that our children reach their fullest potential. I believe that all of us - the school and the community - must work together as an extended family to insure success for all our students. It’s our responsibility to empower children with the creative, intellectual, and decision-making skills necessary for them to become academically, socially, physically, and emotionally successful.
One of our most important responsibilities to you is that we keep you informed of all that is taking place at the school. One of the ways we do this is regularly updating our school website. You can find up-to-date events, classroom photographs, and additional information, so I encourage you to visit it as often as possible. Another critical communication tool that we use to keep parents informed is our CMS Parent and Community Newsletter, which is sent out periodically throughout the school year. In addition to the website and CMS newsletter, I want you to know that you are welcome to call me if you have any questions or concerns.
I look forward to another great year at Cambridge Middle School!

WEB, which stands for “Where Everybody Belongs” is Cambridge Middle School's orientation and transition program that welcomes our incoming 6th graders to CMS and makes them feel comfortable throughout the first year of their middle school experience. Built on the belief that students can help students succeed, the program trains mentors from our 8th grade class to be WEB Leaders. As positive role models, WEB Leaders are mentors and student leaders who guide the 6th graders to discover what it takes to be successful during the transition to middle school and help facilitate 6th grade success.
