School Announcements

  • Mr. Watson's CMS Weekly Update



    Good Afternoon Parents and Students,


    This is your principal, Mr. Watson, and I hope you are having a great weekend.


    On Monday, February 19th students are out of school for President’s Day.


    Congratulations to the following students for representing Carter Middle in the All County Band: Connor Gass, Isaac Clift, Sarah Ellis, Katie Grubb, Rylan Lackore, Deacon Anderson, and Tyler Weaver.  

    Congratulations to girl's basketball player Reagan Trumm for being selected to the 2018 Knox County All League Team. 

    If your student is trying out for track, then they need to have a sport’s physical on file dated after April 15th, 2017. Try-outs for track will continue this week. Students need to see Mr. Meade or Mrs. Dudley for more details.


    Congratulations to Mr. Green, Mr. Hone, and Mrs. Webb for being selected Carter Middle School Teachers of the Year. They will represent Carter this Thursday at the Knox County Teacher of the Year Banquet.


    On Tuesday, February 27th there will be a Knox County Strategic Planning Session at Carter Middle School at 6 pm. We have tried to have this two other times this semester and it has been cancelled due to school closing, so hopefully the third time is the charm.


    Have a great week and Go Hornets!




    Mr. Watson
