I feel certain that all of you, like me, cherish the fond memories you made at this wonderful school. As a current sixth grade teacher and parent to three CMDS students, I can assure you that CMDS carries on its rich tradition of academic excellence balanced with a nurturing, Christ-centered environment, which dates back to 1958.
Each year, our students take part in activities that spell out our school’s mission, taking me back to my days at CMDS. They praise God with timeless songs in weekly chapel programs. They usher in the Christmas season by singing “Happy Birthday, Jesus” and giving gifts to those in need. They place flowers on the cross after the Easter Walk-Through. In the fall of their sixth grade year, they take that unforgettable trip to St. Louis. And each May, commended for a job well done, a new class of graduates adds to our growing alumni base.
Take a look around our website or, better yet, come visit us on campus. There have been quite a few changes over the years. You may notice iPads, Promethean boards, a fancy new playground, and state-of-the-art facilities, but one thing is certain: the heart of Christ Methodist Day School remains the same. The faculty, staff, and students of our school truly are “devoted to direction.”
