CMS Mission Statement

In a safe, positive environment, all students will be challenged in the learning process by a staff that empowers independent thinkers and prepares them for high school and the global community

From Mr. Morales

Dear Cucamonga Middle School Community,


Every year as the start of the new year approaches, there is excitement or possibly anxiety to what that new year holds.  Each year has 180 days of learning.  180 days of opportunities to grow, be stretched, learn something new, to step outside our comfort zone.  180 days to make new friends, see things in a different way, learn new skills.  In those 180 days, there will be moments where we fail, where things do not always turn out the way we want or like.  It is the opportunity that these 180 days hold, that is so great.  To achieve great things or even fail gloriously.  Because failing means you tried, you care, you want to grow, you want to learn.  You are just not there yet, but we will help you get there.  The staff at CMS embraces the opportunity that each of those days hold to help students, challenge them and to inspire them to be the change the world needs.  Our commitment to you is that we will do the following:

  • Work hard
  • Believe that all students can succeed and act upon that belief
  • Attempt to fill each day with rigor and relevance
  • Believe in the impossible
  • To continue being a school where we would want our own children to attend
  • Keep learning
  • Being passionate about what we do

We would hope that you would partner with us this year in helping make this a great year for your child.  We would hope that you join us in stepping outside of our comfort zone, trying to see things in a new way and being open to growing, in order to better meet the challenges of the 21st century holds. Those 180 days will go by fast, though it may not always feel that way.  Let us not lose site of the gift that each day holds.  Let us not forget that a few committed people working together can accomplish amazing things.  Let us work together to find the things that unite us and not things that divide us.  I hope you feel our excitement about what the number 180 holds.  Here is to a great school year.


Mr. Morales
