CHMS Annual Food Drive

November 1 - Food Drive Starts

November 10 - Food Drive Ends

This is an important event for us to replenish our food pantry. The Vermont Food Bank is also experiencing a large increase in the number of Vermonters accessing their services. Any excess food the CHMS community generates will be donated to The Vermont Food Bank.

Students will receive more information about this important effort the first week of November.

14 CHMS cross country runners participated in the Vermont Middle School State Cross Country Championship held October 28th at Trapp Family Lodge.

We had a strong showing from our 5/6 runners with Clayton, Mason, Gavin, and Farmer all receiving medals for finishing in the top 16 in the 5/6 division. Snow earned a medal finishing 9th in the 8th grade division and 20th overall. Wonderful finish to a great cross country season!

Congratulations to all cross country runners!

Ever thought about opening up a restaurant? If so, Sequoia students can help! They just wrapped up a virtual, cultural exploration of a country of their choice where they were given a budget to plan a trip and kept a travel journal highlighting landmarks, geography, museums, places of worship, and awesome restaurants. Students culminated their project with a food fair! Students 'opened a restaurant' complete with a name, menu, and a sample dish authentic to the country researched. Sequoia students learned a lot about the world today with the added bonus of a full stomach!

Spanish Noticias...

Looking for a great holiday or anytime treat for your four-legged friend? Look no further! The Spanish/French students, Team Grit and Team Spark at Camels Hump Middle School will be selling these wonderful all natural dog treats from November 16th through December 7th. ALL proceeds will help offset the cost of our class field trips. These products are not only great for your pup(s), but they are locally made right here in Richmond, VT and support our community as well.

Thank you in advance for supporting our programs.

Eighth grade Design Technology students have recently completed the robotic arm challenge. Pairing their newly formed knowledge of hydraulics with their woodshop, CAD design, and 3D printing skill sets, teams were tasked with creating a robotic arm that could grab a tennis ball, lift it into the air, and then rotate it to a new location. Check out these videos to see the robotic arms in action! ‚Äč

  • If you are planning to play a winter sport, get those sports physical scheduled and athletic participation forms in. Physicals are valid for two years. Athletic participation forms must be completed yearly; if your child completed a form for a fall sport, one is not needed for winter or spring sports.
