Crestview Middle School is committed to offering the very best in instruction and educational opportunity to our students. This means continuously striving to improve on programming and delivery. I am excited about the work of our teaching and support staff to provide quality educational programming to all CMS students. Your CMS staff has taken the initiative to acquire several grants to build on the Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) opportunities for students. We have seen a partnering of 8th grade students and 4th grade students for simple coding activities with our Ozobots, and new ‘MakerSpace’ in our media center, and we are exploring more opportunities for students to program, code, build and create as a part of their learning. It is our goal to foster expert learning strategies in every student to prepare them for the continuously changing landscape of the job market they will be faced with. This will be accomplished through challenging our students to be creative, resourceful and resilient in the their learning. To stay in touch with CMS and the many great things happening please follow us on Facebook: www.facebook.com/crestviewmiddle.
