Welcome to the 2019-2020 academic year! I am looking forward to my first year here as principal. CHMS students have a longstanding tradition of high academic performance and our staff is wholly committed to building on that reputation. In addition, our school has a strong sense of family and a focus on doing what is best for kids. I am a graduate of Colonial Heights Public Schools, am raising my family in this community, and intend to build on the foundation of excellence that has been established at CHMS. One of the most important aspects of a school community is having a partnership with families. At CHMS, we believe in our community and in our children and families. We are dedicated to the success of all students. Our theme this year is “We Are Colonials!” Throughout the year we will focus on high quality instruction, hard work, integrity, honesty, and caring for others. I look forward to partnering with you as your student journeys through middle school. Our doors are always open. Please make a point to stop by to see me when you come on campus. Go Colonials!
