Infinite Campus Instruction

Eva Bratnick, technology manager for the Cardinal Schools, recently spent the evening at the middle school assisting parents with the district’s student management program, Infinite Campus (IC). Through the Parent Portal of IC, parents gain access to their child’s school information including grades, attendance and behavior as well as district announcements.

For more information and directions, visit and choose Infinite Campus Parent Portal Information under the Parents and Students tab.

CMS Academic Awards

Mrs. Fulton, with the help of students, presented CMS students with first semester academic awards including Honor Roll, Merit Roll, Perfect Attendance and Straight A’s.

Students were reminded of the monthly Read More theme and were encouraged to enter to win a free Kindle. In order to be eligible for the Kindle drawing, students must have a Middlefield Library card, complete a book bingo and have their parents signed up on the district’s parent portal of Infinite Campus.

CMS Pep Assembly

Students enjoyed a first semester pep assembly at the middle school to recognize athletes in fall and winter sports. Teams were recognized and then faced a challenging game such as stacking cups, hula-hoops and pulling apart frozen Huskie apparel.

Led by athletic director Andy Cardinal and cheerleading advisor Merry Lou Knuckles, the CMS students and teachers chanted, “What’s Inside? Huskie Pride!”

Middlefield Library Visits

Employees of the Middlefield Public Library recently attended CMS conferences to accept applications and issue library cards to parents and students. The library has partnered with CMS to encourage the monthly theme of Read More by creating a Book Bingo activity.

Four Way Speech Winner

Congratulations to Cardinal High School senior Miranda S. for winning a substantial first place prize in the Burton/Middlefield Rotary Four Way Speech Contest.

The Rotary offers this program yearly to students from Newbury, Burton and Middlefield. The students are required to write and present a four to seven minute speech revolving around an ethical issue and then help to solve the issue using four given questions.

Miranda addressed her speech towards the need for incorporating more soft skills into the high school curriculum so that students will be better prepared to enter the workforce beyond simply having the academic knowledge to obtain employment. She will go on to compete in a district level competition against students from all over northeastern Ohio on April 5 at Aurora High School.

Thank you to the Rotary for providing the opportunity, as well as scholarships and various donations, to the benefit of local students.
