Recent Flooding Displaces CHMS Family

As you may have heard, one of our CHMS families was greatly affected by the recent flooding in Huntington.

The Meachem family has been displaced from their home and lost nearly all of their belongings. A fundraising page has been set up to support the family as they begin to recover from this tragedy.

If you are interested, please visit to share your financial support:

THANK YOU on behalf of the Meachem Family!

Scenes from the 6th Annual Pumpkin Chunkin'

Summit 7th graders helped with fall clean-up during their team meeting on Monday. Don't let them fool you... They can rake, haul, trim, and smile while doing it! It's amazing what 50 hands can do to make short work of the fall clean-up!

In Health Class, students in 8th grade practiced First Aid.

And 6th graders made pizzadillas!

Looking for a great holiday or anytime treat for your 4 legged friends? Look no further! The Spanish/French students and the Pride Team at Camels Hump Middle School will be selling these wonderful all natural dog treats from now through the week of November 11th. ALL proceeds will help offset the cost of our class field trips. The FL students have a culinary cultural trip planned in June of their 8th grade year and the Pride students are earning money for their trip to Ottawa.

All products will be distributed to students on December 16th. Just in time for our holiday break!

And finally, in case you didn't know, these products are made locally right here in Richmond, Vermont by a former CHMS student. Events like this support our students and support our community. Thank you!
