Caption - back to school need to knowThe first day of school is always met with some uncertainty, nervousness, and excitement as students find their classrooms, meet their teachers, and get to know new friends. The beginning of this school year will look a little different – this is a new frontier for all of us. We are excited to welcome our students back to school, with safety being our number one priority. Educators and staff have worked extremely hard to prepare for their virtual arrival. This new school year brings a fresh start for everyone. Check out the CCS Back-to-School Guide for information about schedules and much more.

MAX ABBOTT ANNOUNCES TEACHER OF THE YEAR 2020!
Published by Marisa Owen on August 9, 2020

Captioned Teacher of the year at the top and her name at the bottomCongratulations to Ms. Latasha Yancey for being named the Max Abbott Middle School Teacher of the Year for the 2020-2021 school year.  She was selected by her peers and teaches EC Resource and Co-Op classes in both mathematics and ELA.  These are just a couple of comments by fellow teachers:

  • Ms. Yancey has found ways to form relationships with all students, not just those that she directly works with. She’s truly one-of-a-kind!  She has always been helpful in providing strategies for students with special needs. Not to mention she exudes joy and passion as an educator. As an individual, she always has a positive demeanor going above and beyond the call of duty.
  • Her support to the girl’s basketball team as an assistant basketball coach was crucial, to provide first-time young players with their confidence to try something new.
  • When one says that “You can’t get blood out of a turnip,” SHE CAN!

We are blessed and grateful to have Ms. Yancey in our Panther Family!
