Principal's Message

June 1, 2023


As the 2022-2023 school year winds down, we are closing out on a very challenging year.  While we are optimistic that we are moving in the right direction, it is very important to recognize and celebrate the hard work by the CMC Community to arrive at the end of a very difficult school year.


On Friday, May 26th, we were able to hold our CMC Recognition and Celebration Day.  The CMC Staff recognized students and graduates through special awards, speeches, and congratulations for the hard work, patience and flexibility put in by the CMC Community.  This recognition was followed by a fun day at the bowling alley to finish the week on a strong note.


Our Graduate Ceremony, or graduation is on Friday, June 2nd at 7pm to celebrate four years of  very hard work put in by our graduates.  This year Clackamas Middle College is graduating 69 students. In this graduating class, our students have earned 3,346 college credits. This equates to an average of 48 college credits per graduate. This provides a savings of over $400,000 in community college tuition, and over $1 million dollars in state university tuition for students and families.  This is a testament to the hard work put in by our students, families, and staff both at CMC and the community college.  We hope that you can join us on June 2nd for our graduation ceremony.  The Graduating Class of 2023 deserves this honor!


As the year winds down, we are already planning our enrollment process for the 2023-2024 School Year. We are a successful school because of the wonderful students who have come through our program. We want to ensure the quality of our system by enrolling fantastic students just like the ones currently enrolled in our program. If you know anyone who is interested in college opportunities, please have them go to our website and follow the directions under the Apply link.


While the 2022-2023 school year comes to a close, it is important for all Clackamas Middle College families and students to check into our website for the latest information regarding activities at CMC.  If you have any questions about anything regarding Clackamas Middle College and it is not posted on the website, please call or email us. 


As always, I want to take this opportunity to thank our students, parents/guardians, teachers and other support staff, both at CMC and at CCC for helping our students receive the highest level of education. It is through your hard work and dedication that we can prepare our students for college, work and life after high school.


Thanks for your support and best wishes for the end of the school year...


… I am College…
