Principal's Message

Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year. I look forward to returning as principal of CWMS and anticipate another successful year partnering with the staff and community to ensure our students receive an unparalleled educational experience.
The culture at Canal Winchester Middle School is a place where children feel safe and supported.  As a PBIS (Positive Behavior Interventions & Supports) school, we have clearly outlined our behavioral expectations.  We teach students these common expectations through CWMS: “Cooperative, Wise, Motivated, and Safe”. Our students are positively reinforced on a regular basis for meeting these expectations. Please refer to the link here to read about Ohio PBIS.
Students at Canal Winchester Middle School participate in weekly lessons to focus on social and emotional learning.  We want your child to be successful in school, and that means going beyond the basics. Excelling in academic classes is important, but students also need to know how to learn, make good decisions, handle strong emotions, and get along with others. Students will focus on skills and concepts that are designed to help students both in and out of school. These include the following: Mindsets and Goals, Values and Friendships, Thoughts, Emotions, and Decisions and Serious Peer Conflicts.
As a staff, our mission is to nurture and develop adolescents to become independent, self-directed, and empathetic changemakers in their community. Our vision is to provide learning environments that foster community, wellness, innovation, persistence, and growth so that students will develop as changemakers. 
I am honored to lead such an outstanding school community and eagerly anticipate a rewarding and successful year. Please do not hesitate to contact me with questions, concerns, or input at any time.
Kelly Zywczyk, Principal
