During the week of October 13th our 6th and 8th graders will be participating in the Healthy Youth Survey. Please read the attached flyers for further information. These flyers will be sent home with your students in the next two weeks. If you have further questions please contact our guidance office.
Cascade Middle School WEB leaders are working with their peers to try to “Change the Game” in an effort to reduce bullying and recognize the acts of kindness and citizenship that occur in our classrooms and hallways. The effort, sponsored also by the Mariners and Macklemore, also asks students to pledge to be kind and take a stand against bullying.
For more information, go to The Seattle Mariners Change The Game website.
Cascade showed its best with the Literacy Fair and Science Night along with the book fair on March 6th. See more pictures...
Amy Johnson taught 5th grade at Northlake Elementary School until this fall when she moved to Cascade. At all levels, American History is the guiding theme for her teaching. She uses project-based learning about major events, such as the Boston Massacre and the Battle of Gettysburg, to instruct and inspire. Students assemble artifacts, write a detailed report with a bibliography, and do a presentation with visuals. This rigor attempts to replicate a college-level experience for her elementary and middle school students.
Excitement builds as Johnson leads students on a journey through time. Students proclaim: “Mrs. J., you make the past come back to life again!” as they answer important historical questions and discover new topics for investigating. Administrators describe her students as “engaged, inspired, and imaginative in their pursuit to understand the past,” and Johnson herself as “a dynamic teacher of American History without equal.”
We see great things happening at Cascade Middle School. However we'd love to hear from you.

Parents and Guardians, you are the #1 influence in your child's life. All Cowlitz and Wahkiakum County high schools want to join with you to create an educational experience that will open doors to your student's success. Together we can help students build essential confidence and knowledge to face challenges in whatever they do next. Check out this 67 page comprehensive document to assist you in that process.
Please inform the school if your child is absent by calling 577-2702. You can reach us during office hours -- 7:30 to 3:30. Outside of office hours we have voice mail, so please leave a message. We retrieve our messages first thing in the morning. In addition to reporting absences, also call to report if your child will be late for school or needs to be dismissed early for an appointment or some other reason.
The best way to request that your child be dismissed early is to send a note that day and ask your child to check in at the office when they arrive. We can then give them a pass to get out of class at the designated time.
In addition to calling when your child is absent, sending a note with them when they return helps to ensure that our attendance records are complete and accurate.
Process for handling pre-planned absenses. See guidelines and request for approval form.
Thanks for your cooperation!
(Please note that the number in the phone book (577-2706) is not correct.)
