Principal's Message

June 1, 2021


As the 2020-2021 school year winds down, we are closing out on a very challenging year of Comprehensive Distance Learning (CDL).  While we are optimistic to open our doors to in-person learning for the 2021-2022 school year, it is very important to recognize and celebrate the hard work in by the CMC Community to arrive at the end of a very unusual school year.


We are planning/working on a celebration for all CMC students through our Annual CMC Recognition and Celebration Evening. CMC Staff will recognize students on Wednesday, June 9th at 6:30pm through special awards, speeches, and congratulations for the hard work, patience and flexibility put in by the CMC Community.  This recognition will be followed by a Graduate Recognition Ceremony on Wednesday, June 9th at 7pm to celebrate four years of hard work put in by our graduates.  


This year Clackamas Middle College is graduating 90 students. In this graduating class, our students have earned 4,727 college credits. This equates to an average of 68 college credits per graduate. This provides a savings of over $500,000 in community college tuition, and near $2 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 are hoping that you can gather with family members to watch the Graduate Recognition Ceremony on Wednesday, June 9th at 7pm.  The Graduating Class of 2021 deserves this honor.


As the year winds down, we are already planning our enrollment process for the 2021-2022 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 2020-2021 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 a safe, happy, and successful end of the school year.
