Principal's Letter to Parents

August 21, 2017


Hello CMS Community,

I want to officially welcome everyone to the 2017-18 school year.  I am truly excited to be seeing your sons and daughters come to Chimacum Middle School and continue their academic journey.  I hope that you are enjoying your summer and getting ready to come back to CMS and grow and learn. For some, it is continuing the journey of being a middle school student and for our 6th grade students it is a time of new beginnings. 

This year we have two new teachers at Chimacum Middle School.  Bryon Monohon and Jessica Rushton will be teaching math. Our team of educators and administration are dedicated to working with you, as educational partners, to create opportunities for students to experience success throughout their time at Chimacum Middle School. Every student can do well and achieve when we establish high expectations and work collectively to provide the needed support for students to meet and exceed those expectations.

Families are welcome to attend CMS' Veterans Day Assembly on 11/9 at 8 am in the Auditorium.
