CMS Students Adopt A PatientThe students at Calhoun Middle School will again be adopting a patient from the Minnie Hamilton Long Term Care Unit for Christmas. Each homeroom will adopt a patient and students will bring in items for their patient's package. A list of items needed was sent home with students last week. If you did not receive a list, please contact Tammey Webb or Linda Edwards at Calhoun Middle School. We would like to take this opportunity to thank all parents and students for their participation and support of this very worthwhile project.

Read To Me Day Calhoun Middle School participated in the Seventh Annual Read to Me day on November 15, 2001. The Read to Me goal was to ensure that every child was read to for at least twenty minutes on that day. Parent volunteers and classroom teachers read to approximately 400 students. Some classes focused on poetry while others focused on books pertaining to their content area.

Mr. Stump's Social Studies classes read an anthology titled A Father's Complaint to enhance the study of ancient Mesopotamia. Mrs. Jarvis's Language Arts classes read Running Out of Time to introduce the author Margaret Peterson Haddix. Mrs. Huff read Shel Silverstein poems to her computer classes.

Title 1 would like to extend a very special thanks to the parent volunteers who came to read to the students: Norma Myers, Linda Simmons, Lori Cook, and Becky Cooper. They did a terrific job!
