17 May 2021 | Chartiers Valley Middle School
Hello Colt Families,

The Middle School had the pleasure of hosting the incoming 6th graders to our building last week for "Move-Up Day". It was truly a pleasure to welcome the Class of 2028 and to see the excitement in the students' faces.

CVMS has once again earned the designation of being named a "No Place For Hate" School for the 6th year in a row. In order to receive this designation, schools must have all students sign the "Resolution of Respect" and participate in two school-wide activities. We are honored to carry this designation once again and will continue to promote the message each and every day.

Fall sports sign-ups are currently open for incoming 7th and 8th graders. Please use the following links to sign up to be part of a Chartiers Valley MS Athletic Program. Signups will be open until June 1, 2021. Anyone wishing to sign up after that date should contact Assistant Athletic Director, Shay Muraco (smuraco@cvsd.net) for sign up. 

Along with this sign-up, all student-athletes are required to have a PIAA physical (dated after June 1, 2021) as well as be registered for their fall sport on the CVSD Athletics Registration website. Details about that process will follow once signups are complete.

MS Girls Soccer

MS Boys Soccer

We want to take the opportunity to cordially invite all 8th-grade students and families to our 8th Grade Recognition Ceremony on Thursday, May 20, 2021.  During the ceremony, which will be held at the stadium, all 8th-grade students will be recognized as they make the transition from Middle School to High School.  Please consider joining us for this special evening of celebrating the Class of 2025.  Students are to report at 6:30 p.m. to the Visitor's bleachers.  (Families can proceed to the Home bleachers.) The Recognition Ceremony will start at 7:00 p.m. Due to keeping with social distancing guidelines, each student can invite 5 guests. We look forward to a great event!
Make it a great day,

Dr. Michele Welter, Principal
Mr. Dan Knause, Assistant Principal
