Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year! I am excited to begin the year as the new principal of LCMS and know that our students will achieve great things. Chiles Middle School is, once again, an “A” rated middle school and continues to be the top-ranked Seminole County middle school. Great students, great families, and great staff continue to lead to great success on campus.
At LCMS, we value the education of each student and make sure we schedule them into courses according to their unique abilities. While placing students, multiple data sources are used to ensure that students are challenged and placed into courses in which they will find success. Should you have any questions or concerns regarding your students courses, please contact either myself or a guidance counselor and we will be happy to assist.
Chiles Middle will continue to have an open communication model and will reach out to parents to keep our families well-informed of everything taking place on campus. Through skyward, parents can stay up to date on the progress of their students in courses and eCampus will help parents keep track of due dates, course materials, and upcoming lessons. In addition, weekly emails are sent to families with information regarding upcoming events, school achievements, and important information.
LCMS offers students the opportunity to show their talents and improve skills both within and outside of the traditional classroom setting. Our students have the opportunity to participate in our award-winning fine arts programs, join our championship sports teams, or get involved in one of our many clubs, including BETA, JROTC, Junior Thespians, SECME, FCA, FEA, and various others. All students will be able to find a group that matches their specific interests!
As we move through the year, please know that the staff at LCMS is ready to serve our students and families at the highest level and that the lines of communication are always open. Please be sure to register for skyward family access, eCampus access as a parent observer, and keep your contact information current with the school and through skyward. If you have any concerns, questions, or need additional information, please reach out to any member of the LCMS staff and we will be happy to assist.
Again, welcome back for the 2017-2018 school year. I know that our students will achieve great things with the support of the entire community!
