CMS Students Take On Leadership Role As Key Communicators
This September, a group of sixth, seventh and eighth grade students were invited to be part of a new leadership opportunity at CMS. During a special pizza luncheon, principal Annemarie Barkman congratulated the students and explained that each had been selected as their respective homeroom’s “key communicator.”
As Key Communicators, these students will become an important communication link between their peers and school administrators, helping to spread the word about school events and new or different rules and procedures. They will also lead homeroom discussions, gather and bring forward student questions and suggestions, shed light on student concerns, and work to dispel or confirm rumors. Each month, the Key Communicators and the CMS administrative team will meet as a group to discuss school happenings and enjoy free pizza (courtesy of Brian Kellogg, owner of Pizza Den in Chatham.)
A total of twelve students, one from each homeroom, were selected based on postive character traits, leadership skills, and experience in programs like NCBI, peer mediation and National Junior Honor Society.
These CMS Key Communicator Student Leaders are:
Eighth grade- Baylee Cox, Taylor Hanson, Anna Kratt and Geetika Verma
Seventh grade- Lauren Berry, Emily Fabiano, Madison Newton, Kyle Stockman
Sixth grade- Garner Boshart, Gavin Kline, Eliza Lindberg, Sophie Shea
