Cross Country Information

We will begin cross country for the 2015-16 school year on July 20.  Meet at CHMS bleachers at 7pm for timing.  At 7:30 pm we will have a brief parent meeting.  All runners must have a physical on file before being allowed to practice with the team.  I encourage each athlete to run as often as possible during the summer.  At Warrior's Path, the distance from the marina parking lot (right side) around duck island and back is about one mile. 

Training: week 1 MWFS 1 mile     week 2: MWFS 1.5 miles   week 3: MWFS 2 miles.  Continue workout 4 days through the summer.  Contact me through email at valerie.watterson@yahoo.com

A Message from Mr. Gilmore

After serving four years as principal of Colonial Heights Middle School, I have seen "community" lived out in a real, dynamic, meaningful fashion.

It has been more than just a dictionary definition of "a group of people who live in the same area" or the expanded definitions of "a unified body of individuals" or "an interacting population.''

Community has been lived out well in a manner that far exceeds the life of a typical school.

Churches have partnered with us to meet student, staff, and school-wide needs, including food, landscaping, use of facilities, prayers and gifts. So many different churches have assisted CHMS and to each of them, we are forever grateful.

Individuals have donated supplies, money, and time. They have sent encouraging emails about teachers. They have participated as TCAP proctors, Career Day presenters, and volunteered to keep the gate/concessions for our athletic teams. 

Community members have advocated for the school at the district and state levels, expending energy and passion in an effort to keep Colonial Heights Middle School relevant.

The teachers and staff have spent countless hours above and beyond job expectations, preparing lessons, providing remediation, and coaching students so that all can reach full potential. Their personal support, advice, and encouragement to me is greatly appreciated and will never be forgotten.

And the students have risen above the pressures of life to attain high academic achievement, athletic accomplishment, and outstanding citizenship in a way that reflects the community that they represent so well. Their enthusiasm, energy, and smiles are the best examples of community at Colonial Heights Middle School.

May this community, as it exists at this place, enjoy continued success and blessings in the coming months and years.
