All School fundraiser kicks off on Sept. 3rd

We are excited to partner with Golden Services again this year for our all school fundraiser. This is the only all school fundraiser CRMS will participate in. All of our proceeds will go right back to the students via our extra curricular activities and programs. We will use the funds to help purchase uniforms, supplies, costumes, and more for each of our after school programs. Please support your student and our school by participating. 

Our goal is $30,000 which is about 3 orders per student. 

CRMS to add teachers due to growth

         We are excited to announce that due to increased enrollment and higher than projected student counts, Coal Ridge will be adding additional teachers to the staff. This will help reduce class sizes as well as provide more offerings for our students. We are going to add two teaching positions for our 6th grade team. One teacher will teach Language Arts and Social Studies and the other will teach Math and Science. These positions have been posted through our Human Resources Department.

New CRMS Bulletin

Coal Ridge is now using a new digital bulletin. Subscribers can join the list to get important information about upcoming events.

8th Grade Dance This Friday, May 1

It is that time of year when we like to celebrate the three years our 8th graders have spent at Coal Ridge by honoring them with a "formal" dance. Our hope is that all students will attend this dance which has become a tradition here at CRMS. The cost of the dance is $5 at the door as we won't be having advance sales this year. Kids don't need dates... just come and have fun.

The dance starts at 6 pm and ends at 8 pm. Hope to see you there!

One word to describe “Camp iPad for Parents”

Many interested parents attended the second Camp iPad for Parents event at Coal Ridge Middle School on April 23rd.

Parents learned tips and tricks, how to adjust settings on an iPad to their liking, visited with teachers and students, discussed “wonderings” and concerns with fellow parents and educators, and enjoyed meeting parents from around the district.

We discussed screen time, organization, assignments, and several other aspects of modern student life.
