Happy New Year! 
CMS Faculty and Staff certainly do miss our students and hope that everyone is doing everything possible to remain healthy and well. School is back in session on Monday, January 4th for ALL students. Please remember to wear a mask when moving throughout the building at all times, wash hands frequently, and sanitize your space after use. 
This is a reminder that we no longer have Remote Friday's. All students are expected to attend school Monday through Friday of each week. 
Only students that were Remote Learners and in Good Standing during the 1st Semester qualify to continue with Remote Learning for the remainder of the school year. If you qualify and want to continue with Remote Learning for the remainder of the school year, please let Ms. Rose know by Thursday, Jan. 7th, 2021. If you are a Remote Learner wanting to continue with Remote Learning, there is a chance that you may NOT have the same teacher you had during the 1st semester. 
This is important information to know when you are deciding if you want to remain a Remote Learner. 
In "Good Standing" means you must be passing ALL 4 core classes. If  you are failing one or more core subjects, you will need to come back to in-person learning on Jan. 15th, 2021. 
The end of the 2nd 9 weeks/1st semester is Thursday, Jan. 14th. The 3rd 9 weeks begins on Friday, Jan. 15th. 
There is NO School on Monday, Jan. 18th in observation of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. 
Report Cards for the 2nd 9 Weeks will be sent home on Friday, Jan. 22nd. 
Parents, please go to your child's teachers websites weekly to see what topics your child is learning, when assignments are due, quiz and test dates and to find important information and dates to know. Thank you for helping your child stay organized and focused on their education. 
During these trying times, it will take all of us being persistent in helping our children be successful in all aspects of their lives..... academically, socially, emotionally, and spiritually! 
Most Sincerely,
Ms. Rose, Principal
Cherokee Middle School

Tips for Parents to Help Your Child Prepare:
September 25th, 2020
Parents of Remote Learners, 
On Tuesday, September 22nd the Roane County School Board voted and approved that beginning Friday, October 2, 2020, all K - 12 students will learn remotely on Friday of each week until December 18, 2020. 

The board also voted and approved that beginning with the 2nd 9 weeks grading  period, parents who make a choice of in-person or remote learning must stay with the choice they have made for the full 9 week grading period. 

The board voted and approved that remote students who are not completing work, signing in to attend virtual classes and meetings and/or are failing will be required to return to in-person learning. 

Students that attend in-person will receive instruction from their teachers for their Friday assignments. Assignments may be both, paper/pencil and/or on Google Classroom. There will be no “new” instruction assigned on Fridays. The work students will be expected to complete on Friday’s will be practice from the week's lessons and possibly quizzes. Students can email their teachers to ask clarifying questions and can request a one-on-one Google Meet for additional support. Teachers will be in the building ready to assist on Fridays from 8:20am - 3:20pm. 

Remote Learners will be expected to attend all four of their core classes virtually on Fridays. This “check in” is for clarification from the week's assignments, reteaching, assessments and for teachers to give feedback on student learning. 

Fridays are not “Off” days for anyone… not the teachers, administrators, in-person or remote learners. Parents, your patience is appreciated as we work together during these unprecedented times to ensure that ALL students are receiving the Best Education possible for our students. Parents and students should always check all of your teachers websites weekly at

All four core teachers and Related Arts teachers websites should be visited weekly by parents and students. Reading/Language Arts, Math, Science, Social Studies, Special Education, P.E., Guidance, Technology, Library and Band are updated weekly with assignments, expectations and procedures on how to access all of the sites and materials utilized in the classroom.
Parents have 24/7 access to your child’s grades via ParentVue. We look forward to a continued partnership, working together with you to ensure your child receives the best education possible.
