Welcome to the home of the mighty Wildcats. Middle School is an important decision making period in the lives of eleven to fourteen year olds. It is our job, parents and staff, to provide middle school students with the best possible environment for learning and growing. At Chehalis Middle School, we are committed to helping our students develop and grow into caring, compassionate, well-rounded members of society by focusing on education and social interaction. It is our goal to provide students with meaningful activities both during and after school so that they might feel part of Chehalis Middle School. We appreciate your
support and school involvement. It is very hard to educate a child without the continued support of parents.
Feel free to use this website to keep informed of upcoming events and activities. Throughout the year you will find information pertaining to school programs with a number of links and resources to help you and your student be successful.
Math Tutors Available Friday Morning and Afternoon!
What? Tutors will be available Friday mornings and afternoons, beginning December 6th, 2014. All Students are welcome!
Why? Students already receive core math instruction each day and have access to additional support during CORE/Flex time. This tutoring opportunity serves as a third option to become a successful mathematics student.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
Our annual CMS magazine sale and cookie dough fundraiser was a huge success. Our students did a great job this year, and in most cases, it wouldn't have happened with the help and support of parents. Overall, we brought in $33,609.10. Our school keeps just under 50% of the money raised which brings our CMS ASB profit to $15,796.23. A special thank you to our amazing volunteers who have spent several days at our school collecting sales, organizing order forms, and counting money. Please remember, it may take a couple months for your magazines to begin arriving. Also, we'll be giving out more detailed information about the cookie dough delivery date as we get it. If you are still interested in ordering any items, please go to gaschoolstore.com and use code 2503753. CMS will still recieve a percentage of every item purchased throughout the year. Again, Thank You!
COOKIE DOUGH was delivered Wednesday, November 13th. (If you were missing an order please call Great American @ 1-877-289-6247)
