CHMS Internet Options

We are underway in our first school year going 1:1 with the Chromebooks.
As always, there are a few questions about access to the internet, including where and how much. 
Click here for our main information page about Chromebook Resources.  
There are a few places around town who are providing free internet access.   There is map to them here.  The library, McDonald's, Chick-fil-A, and a few other areas scattered about Colonial Heights.  
There is also Comcast's Internet Essentials for those who qualify.  Internet at home for about $10 a month.  Click here for a downloadable PDF about Internet Essentials
Hope this helps with any questions.

Principal's Message

Principal William Hortz


Happy 2019 CHMS Family!

 We are ready to take on 2019, finish our first semester strong, and have a productive and successful second semester! 

There are lots of events and opportunities to shine here at the middle school. Please keep abreast of events and stay involved!

We are working hard to prepare for 8th grade SOL tests in Science and Civics. Afterschool remediation will run from February through April to help students sharpen their math and language skills. We have upcoming events in Drama, Band, SCA, FCA, FCCLA, and the other teams and clubs.

Parents, continue to stay involved in your student’s education.  Look at their work on their Chromebook, check their grades on PowerSchool, look in their binder, check their agenda, review their homework, check the website and read the Newsletter.  Your involvement really makes the difference in your child’s success!
