CMS Weekly Update 11-12-2017
Hello CMS Families!
       We have a great deal going on at CMS in the coming weeks so please excuse that this week’s edition is longer than usual.  We are currently collecting new or gently used suitcases along with toiletries that will be donated to children in foster care.  We would greatly appreciate your support as we work to assist those in need.  If you have a student that is experiencing academic difficulty, we will hold another Saturday school session on December 9th in order to assist students in bringing up their grades and tutoring for areas in which students require extra time and support.


News From Around CMS:
From CMS 7th Grade:  Due to an escalation of horseplay/rough-housing, 7th grade has implemented a grade level procedure in which students will receive ISS as a result of exhibiting those behaviors.
From Mrs. Hall:  There will be no math tutoring this week.
From Coach Bailey:  Cheatham Madness shirts are now being sold!! They are $10 each and come in youth and adult sizes.  Homeroom teachers have order forms available for students. All shirt orders and money are due on November 27th! For any questions, email Coach Bailey at
From Coach Carter:  Cheatham Middle School basketball teams will be busy next week. Both teams will travel to Sycamore on Monday, host Montgomery Central on Tuesday and host East Hickman Thursday for Homecoming. There will be a pep rally Thursday to announce basketball teams, wrestlers, cheerleaders and homecoming court.
From Mr. Cooke:  Just a reminder that the second payment of $110.00 for the 7th/8th grade trip to Atlanta next summer is due. Please make a payment to Mr. Cooke or Executive Travel in Ashland City this month. If you cannot make the full payment, please pay something towards the trip.
From Mrs. Taylor:  We will have Drama Club Rehearsal this Tuesday, Nov. 14th in the Band Room from 3:00 - 4:00.
From Mrs. Heflin:  December 7 is the AR deadline for students that wish to go on the field trip. In order to attend, 100% of their AR goal must be met for BOTH grading periods this semester.  December 18 is the AR deadline for ALL students for grading purposes.  5/6 grade AR field trip is scheduled for December 19 and 7/8 grade AR field trip is scheduled for December 21.
We have been provided a special opportunity to raise money for our school library!
You can help our school earn money just by purchasing a ticket to a movie on its opening weekend!
Students and families that purchase tickets to the upcoming movie Wonder featuring Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson on the weekend of November 17-19 will earn our school library $1.00 for every ticket purchased. The movie Wonder is based on a hugely popular middle school book in our library.
To help us out with this, you will need to purchase your tickets online through You will choose our school and our cause (Cheatham Middle School, Library) and proceed to purchase your tickets. It's that easy!
Thanks for your support!
From Mrs. Canterbury:  Career Day will be at Cheatham Middle School on November 15 from 8-9:45.  If you, or anyone you know of would like to give a 20-25 minute presentation to three different classes on that morning, we would appreciate you sharing your time and knowledge with us.   Please email for more details.
