February DC Parent Meetings

The next round of DC Parent meetings are scheduled for February 2nd and February 5th both from 6-7pm in the CMS Auditorium. The meetings are for registered families and will be an in-depth presentation about the upcoming 2015 DC trip. You only need to attend ONE of the February meetings. The agenda is posted on the CMS DC Trip Website -



So far Chenery has raised a little over $600. Our goal this year is to raise $2,000. Thank you to all the parents that have helped clip Box Tops. Please consider clipping a few more to help us reach our goal. Send in Box Tops with your child to drop off in homeroom. One homeroom in each grade with the highest number of Box Tops will win a free end of the year party and one homeroom overall will each win $10 gift cards. The last collection day is May 27th. Keep clipping Chenery!

Check out the homeroom standings -

The money earned from Box Tops help to fund student council activities.

Cheetah Grants

The Chenery Middle School Student Council has developed our own grant giving foundation.  We would like to provide students and staff an opportunity to fund a small project to benefit the Belmont community.  These grants can only be written by CMS students and staff. The purpose of the grants should have the Belmont community in mind (no individual personal grants). The grant amounts can range from $25-$150.
