Graduates on field

School’s out for the summer! What a terrific month of May we had. Lots of celebrations and accomplishments not to mention the first graduation on our beautiful football field! This will become a tradition. Congratulations to the graduating class of 2021. We will miss you!

Some of the other celebrations we had were scholarship night (over $800,000 in scholarships awarded to our fabulous senior class!), fall sports awards, kindergarten graduation, eighth-grade promotion, and K–12 award ceremonies. Cloudcroft students are amazing!

Talk about amazing are our track teams! The boys have won one meet and came in as runner-up in another and our three-time state champion girls have won two meets! We already have many state-qualified athletes. Cloudcroft will be hosting the district meet on June 10 so, come out and help or just watch our Bear Athletes! The state meet this year is June 17 in Albuquerque. We are excited to see how both teams compete. Go Bears!

Our final town hall meeting was on May 20. We had a blast with our beach theme and five lucky families walked away with Sonic gift cards for attending and participating in the discussion. We will be continuing with our town hall meetings next school year and value the feedback we receive from parents and community members. The more we listen and learn the better we can help our students be successful! To see the discussions we have had at all three town hall meetings, please visit our website Home page. We list each meeting under “Latest News” on the homepage.

Tularosa Basin Telephone Company General Manager Josh Beug with Volleyball player and cross country runner

We would like to give a big shout-out to Tularosa Basin Telephone Company and General Manager Josh Beug. They gave a very generous donation to our CMS Athletics Department to purchase our state cross country boys team and our state volleyball team championship rings! The student-athletes will cherish these for many years to come, and the rings will also serve as a reminder of what can be accomplished with hard work and dedication. Thank you TBTC and Josh!

Even though school is out for the summer, this is when the real work begins laying the foundation for the 2021–2022 school year. We are excited to start the 2021–2022 school year with a bit more normalcy than last year. We are planning some “kick-off” activities to start our new school year so, look for these in the July edition as well as our website and our Facebook page.

I would like to wish everyone a relaxing and joy-filled summer! We all deserve it - especially our students, parents, and staff! Thank you for the support and dedication you have to Cloudcroft Municipal Schools! See you in August!

Go Bears!
