Clackamas Middle College

Principal's Message

November 1, 2017


We are halfway through the trimester, and school and classes are moving full steam ahead.  This school year began quite rapidly with many important events in September and October.  Now that the smoke has cleared (a bit), we will take the time to look at our school, improve our practice of education, and create a positive, inclusive college readiness culture. 


The focus for our school during the year will be to use our lens of equity to achieve our school goals.  We have created vision panels around equity, college and career readiness, and quality instructional practices.  These vision panels will soon include students and parents in the hopes of creating processes around our vision which is based on our shared values and beliefs in education.  By participating in the vision panels, we are hoping to bring to life our vision at CMC.  


This year our vision panels are looking to:


  • Look deeper into how assessment can help teacher instruction and student outcomes
  • Build a positive and inclusive school culture which affirms each student's identity, builds community and cultivates leadership
  • Create a consistent approach to college and career awareness for each student in every grade


We are very excited with the steps we are implementing to improve our school around our shared vision. Through the vision panels, we are hoping to provide our students with a world-class, innovative education to prepare them for the world after Clackamas Middle College.


As always, make sure to check the announcements and calendar on our website for events and information.  We, at CMC, want to make sure we are providing a quality education and unique opportunities to each student who comes through our school. 


Thanks and best of luck in the month of November.


… I am College…
