2019 CMS Teacher of the Year

Congratulations to our CMS Teacher of the Year, Mrs. Becky Pierce. Mrs. Pierce is a 6th grade Math teacher at CMS. She was selected by her peers as the recipient of this great honor.

Free Sports Physicals

Any current middle school student who plans on playing a sport next year will be required to have a VHSL physical. We will be providing free physicals for anyone interested on May 7th. Students will need to pick up a physical form from the main office, have parents complete and sign the parental portion and return it to school by May 3rd. Students will stay afterschool on May 7th to do portions of the exam and then will be transported by bus to the Glade Spring Medical Clinic for the remaining portions. Students will call parents after they have completed their exams to let them know what time they will return to CMS for parent pickup.

Spring SOL Testing

We will begin our end of the year SOL testing on April 30th. Since almost all of our testing will begin at 8:30 AM, it is really important that students be on time. Once testing begins, they can not enter the testing room. We encourage students to eat a good breakfast and to go to bed early the night before testing so they are well rested and can do their best. We realize that students do have appointments that they need to go to, so we ask that if you have appointments, such as the orthodontist, that you make every effort to schedule around your student's testing days.


Yearbooks are now on sale. The cost is $35. You can reserve one with a down payment, make monthly payments or pay all at once. We only order 100 so they are sold on a first-come-first-served basis. See Ms. Phipps in the office to reserver yours.

Sports Pictures

You may still order team/individual sports pictures from Mr. Reedy. Please send your order to Mrs. Phipps in the main office. Game pictures can be ordered directly from Mr. Reedy's site (below).

My School Bucks

In order to better serve our parents and community, Smyth County Schools Food Service Program has invested in a web-based cafeteria application called My School Bucks. This application enables parents/guardians to view their child's lunch account status, including account balance, meals eaten, and a la carte/extra items purchased. Parents will also be able to make online payments. There is no charge to view a student account status; however, the company does charge $2.50 to process each online payment. To create an account, click the My School Bucks link above. You will need your child's six-digit cafeteria ID number to complete the account setup. Registration is free. New students will receive their cafeteria ID number at the time of registration or on the first day of school.

Information About School Lunches

The following link will provide more information concerning lunch portion sizes and food options.

Food City School Bucks Program

You must sign up each year to participate in the program, using your Food City Value Card. You may sign up online, too. The following is the correct link for parents to create their MyFoodCity account and link their school -

Encourage parents, family members, and friends to sign up for Chilhowie Middle School. You must sign up each year to participate in the program, using your Food City Value Card. You may use CMS's School's Bar Code or just tell the cashier that they want their purchases to help CHS. The program is designed to earn cash from our Food City receipts. This can be very helpful to our school. Thank you for participating.
