At Caroline Middle School, we believe that all students should continue reading during the summer months to hone academic skills while also developing a lifelong love of reading. Summer reading allows students to choose titles that interest them and affords them time to enjoy reading in a relaxed and comfortable setting. Research shows that students who read during the summer retain more learning and begin the new school year more prepared than those who do not engage in reading.
We have compiled a list of accessible books that are thought-provoking, informative, inspiring, motivational, and will hopefully capture student interest. The list includes award-winning books as well as others recognized by our faculty as meaningful reading for students of various ages.
We are challenging CMS students to keep track of their summer reading on a log on the back of the CMS Summer Reading Brochure. When you get back to school in the fall, bring your signed log and give it to your English teacher. Everyone that returns a signed log will receive a reading reward!
We hope you enjoy your summer reading!
The past two weekends, the CMS music department competed at both Busch Gardens and Dollywood music festivals. The results for all four groups were outstanding!
In the Busch Gardens music festival, the Chorus and Beginning Band both scored an EXCELLENT rating (the 2nd highest possible) and placed 3rd and 4th place in their division, respectively. The Beginning Band was the only beginning group in the competition.
In the Dollywood music festival, the Intermediate/Advanced Band and Strings both scored an EXCELLENT rating (the 2nd highest possible) and both placed 1st place in their division. The band missed a Superior rating by 2.7 points.
We are excited to see our students continue soaring high through music and academics! Congratulations to both Mrs. Yanos and Ms. Mott for your hard work with the students at CMS!

From Deputy Greene: “Sergeant Hall stopped by Caroline Middle School this morning to retrieve a package that was left for him only to be surprised by all of the 6th grade! The students gathered quietly behind the school to show their love and support for Sergeant Hall who was making a quick stop by the school on his way to physical therapy. When Sergeant Hall came around the corner the students all applauded and greeted him! The students were able to briefly speak with Sergeant Hall and then everyone posed for a photo.
Thank you again Ms. Wright and the 6th grade team for allowing the students to come down and show their support.”
