News & Headlines
Dear Titan Family,I hope this finds you all doing well! Although it has been a difficult year, I am so incredibly proud of the way our students, our parents/guardians, and our staff have come together to provide the best possible learning and support opportunities for our students! For our students to be successful, it truly takes everyone coming together, communicating, and being part of the process. This year more than ever I have seen this happening, and I am grateful to all of you for approaching this year with kindness and reaching out to each other. At Northwest Cabarrus Middle School, we pride ourselves on our team approach because we know our students—your children—are the ones who benefit when we all work together!Please remember to keep using and referring back to our NCMS Expectations and Engagement Matrix, which can be found on our NCMS homepage and is available in English and Spanish. If students, parents/guardians, and staff follow this matrix, we will increase the chance for our students’ academic success! Thank you, Titan Family, for your support and action…because we are all “N” this together.Anna BlessingtonPrincipalNorthwest Cabarrus STEM Middle School
