STEAM: Students learn engineering from feathered friends


It was the second week of school and CMS teacher Carrie Tibbs told her students to “think like a bird.”  They had to, because their task was to work together to build a nest.

The group project was part of a STEAM lesson.  STEAM education blends Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, & Mathematics in ways that promote collaboration, communication, critical thinking and creative problem solving.


New Bell Schedule

Welcome Back CMS Students and Family Members!

Below is our new 2014-2015 Bell Schedule

2014 15 bell schedule copy copyChanges: 

Homeroom- has changed it's name and moved from the beginning of the day to lunch time.  FLEX is an opportunity for students to receive an additional enrichment or intervention course.  FLEX also allows for separate 5/6 and 7/8 lunches four days a week.  During 1st period, students will watch the KDOG announcements and receive breakfast, and then begin instruction.  So please come to school on time!

Extended periods- Thursday and Friday are extended periods for hands-on & project based learning opportunities.

PTA Meetings

We invite you to our meetings on the 3rd Tuesday of each month at 7 PM in the Media Center.    Our next meeting of the school year is Tuesday,  October 21st.  We hope to see you there.  Babysitting  is available.

Check the PTA blog for more information.



PTA stands for Parent-Teacher Association. This parent-teacher group is vital to the well-being of the Campbell Middle School community.

The PTA supports all students at CMS by providing and supplementing many programs on campus.  PTA meets the third Tuesday of every month at 7 PM. You are invited to attend so that you will be an informed parent or guardian.

Please consider joining PTA this year. Your $12 membership will go a long way to providing CMS students what they need to be successful in school.
