Chromebook Return 8th graders (updated 5/29/2020)

8th grade students need to turn their Chromebooks in on Monday, June 1st or Tuesday, June 2nd between the hours of 9:00 AM and 2:00 PM. It will be a drive thru and drop off. We will have crates that you can put the Chromebook, case, and charger into. You will not have to wait or get it checked. If your student is taking Honors English in 9th grade they can keep their Chromebook over the summer. Please try your best to drop off the Chromebooks during those two days next week.

6th and 7th grade students are keeping their Chromebooks over the summer to be used next school year. Please turn in your Chromebook if you are moving or not coming back to Carson Middle School next year.

Principal Message

On behalf the entire Carson Middle School community, I’d like to welcome you to our website! 

Carson Middle School, “Home of the Solons,” is one of two middle schools in the Carson City School District, located in Carson City, Nevada.  Our vision is to create a culture of shared responsibility to engage, empower, and inspire successful lifelong learners!  To fulfill that vision we offer a rigorous and challenging academic program in a safe, supportive, nurturing environment that recognizes and supports the unique needs of young adolescent learners.  At CMS, each and every student is a valued member of our school community.  Through the support of the Race to the Top District (RTT-D) Federal Grant our school community has created, developed, and implemented a student-centered learning system that is focused on personalizing the learning experience for all students.  Our students had a 95% overall pass rate during the 2015-2016 school year – a result of the ongoing collaboration between teachers, parents, administrators, students, and community members.  In addition to academic achievement and growth, an essential component of a child’s educational experience is social, emotional, and physical development.  We hope to assist each student in developing an enthusiasm for learning that includes happiness, a positive self-image, and an inquisitive nature.  All of our students are equipped with Google Chromebook laptops and a variety of 21st century classroom technological tools that assist in creating and supporting an innovative learning experience. 

At CMS we believe:

·         All students are capable of learning.

·         All students and teachers deserve a chance to work and learn in a safe and respectful environment.

·         All students deserve to be challenged in a way that empowers them to take control of their own learning.

·         All staff, students, and family members hold stake in the educational process through shared responsibility.

·         High expectations for learning are reasonable to ensure academic success.

·         Every challenge is a learning moment and an opportunity for re-teaching.

Whether you are a student, parent, community member, or considering a move to our district, I hope you find this website resourceful, relevant, and useful.  I encourage you to contact an administrative team member to schedule a tour of our beautiful campus.  If you have any questions about Carson Middle School, please do not hesitate to call or e mail me.  Thanks for stopping by!

Regards,

 

Dan Sadler, Principal
