Cavalier Community,

Welcome to Coldwater Middle School! I hope this finds you and your family in good health and high spirits. As the summer break draws to a close, we are eagerly preparing for the upcoming school year, and I am thrilled to extend my warmest greetings to both returning and new students and families.

At Coldwater Middle School, we strive to create an environment where each student feels valued, supported, and inspired to reach their fullest potential. As in the past, Cav P.R.I.D.E. is the mantra we live by, encompassing the values and principles we hold dear: Caring relationships, Academic growth, Valuing everyone,  and teaching Personal Responsibility In Developing Excellence.

Caring relationships lie at the heart of our school community. Strong connections between staff, students, and families are essential for a successful educational journey. Our dedicated teachers and support staff are committed to nurturing these relationships, ensuring that each student feels safe, heard, and supported throughout their time at Coldwater Middle School.

Academic growth is a key focus at our school. We are committed to providing an enriching and engaging learning environment where students are encouraged to explore their interests, develop critical thinking skills, and achieve their academic goals. Our talented teachers are excited to share their knowledge and expertise, guiding students on their educational journey and fostering a love for lifelong learning.

We firmly believe in the value of everyone in our school community. Each individual brings unique perspectives, talents, and contributions that enrich our collective experience. We celebrate diversity and strive to create an inclusive environment where all students feel respected, appreciated, and empowered to be their authentic selves.

Personal Responsibility In Developing Excellence is a core principle we instill in our students. We believe in the power of personal responsibility and self-discipline to foster growth and excellence. By taking ownership of their actions, setting high standards for themselves, and working diligently towards their goals, our students develop the skills and character necessary to thrive academically and personally.

The middle school doors open at 8:00 AM, with the school day starting at 8:13.  We encourage all students to arrive promptly to ensure a smooth start to the day. We have exciting plans and activities for the school year, including engaging classroom experiences, extracurricular opportunities, and events that foster a sense of community and school spirit.  We look forward to partnering with you as we embark on this year together. Communication between school and home is vital, and I encourage you to reach out to us with any questions, concerns, or suggestions. Together, we can create an exceptional learning environment where every student can flourish.


Wishing you a fantastic start to the school year!

Go Cavs!
