At Central Middle School, we strive to provide learning opportunities for our students that occur outside of the classroom walls and/or give students the opportunity to learn from members of our larger community.  Here are some things our students have done recently:

SERVICE::  In 8th Grade Chorus, students have an opportunity to become pen pals with 2nd grade students.  8th Grade Choir students earn money doing chores to buy a book and a stuffed animal for their pen pal, and then the students visit CMS to sing with the 8th graders.

MONTESSORI INTERNSHIP:  The 7th and 8th grade Montessori students participated in a one-week internship.  This is an opportunity for the students to gain practice in a real world setting under guidance of a knowledgeable, experienced, and successful supervisor.

COLLEGE BOUND:  The 7th grade students participated in the University of Middle School Team Day. They learned about several careers, different ways to pay for college, and also heard from many representatives from area universities and community colleges.

ALL MILLARD ORCHESTRA:  The 8th/7M Orchestra students performed with over 600 middle and high school orchestra students in the All-Millard Orchestra Festival at Millard South. They enjoyed preparing challenging music and collaborating with fellow Millard musicians.


We just completed Mock Trial for HAL 8th graders.  The two day seminar was taught by Dan Fischer, an attorney from Koley Jessen Law firm, and concluded with the students competing against each other in trials.  

The 7th grade HAL students participated in CyberSurgeons.  The students were able to participate as doctors with real cases, diagnoses, and treatments.

MSHS PARTNERSHIP:   Our 8th grade band students joined the MSHS Wind Ensemble for a side by side concert on the stage at Millard South High School.  The band students did an awesome job and the performance was amazing.  

CURRICULUM CONNECTIONS:  Eighth graders attended the movie Hidden Figures to connect their learning in science (space), English (research on people who fought injustice), and math.

ENGLISH LANGUAGE LEARNER (ELL) EXCURSIONS:  Our ELL students recently went on a trip to Do Space to experience cool technology, including robotics and 3D printing.


The mission of Central Middle School is to guarantee that each student develops the character traits and masters the academic skills necessary for  personal excellence and responsible citizenship by engaging and challenging students in a diverse, collaborative community that focuses on nurturing the whole child through intentionally building relationships and Developmental Assets.
