Principal's Message

Hello Cougars!

As we begin the 2017-2018 School Year, I would first like to welcome our incoming 6th Graders and new 7th and 8th Grade students.  I can say, without a doubt, that Canyon Lake Middle is one seriously amazing and inspirational school!  I came to CLMS as Principal during the 2016-2017 School Year and have really enjoyed getting to know the staff, students, and families and I’ve been continually impressed by the efforts of the school community as a whole to make this a truly great school.

Canyon Lake Middle School staff takes great pride in the collaboration, rigorous academics, varied elective options, and high quality instruction provided daily.  In addition to teaching California Content Standards through proven, current techniques and cutting edge instructional technology, we also strongly believe that students truly benefit from the visual and performing arts, participation in community service, athletic competition, and character development.

I am excited to share in the joys and successes this school year will bring.  As I have done every June for the past 25 years, I have no doubt that I will find myself very pleased with the growth our students have made academically, as well as the maturity that naturally occurs during the middle school years.  Have a great year Cougars!!!
