The POWER of INNOVATION (use the force!!!)


Carson Middle School is a learning community that is at the forefront of creativity and innovation in education.  I wanted to take a moment to highlight just one of many incredible innovations that is taking place right now at Carson Middle School.  Through the outstanding leadership of Mr. Rob Hostler (7th and 8th grade Technology and STEM teacher) our students have launched a school media production laboratory called "CMNEWZ."  In the short time that we have been in school (since August 22) nineteen students in Mr. Hostler's advanced multi-media class have created a school media website, linked our social media accounts, created a YouTube channel, and have begun production as a fully independent news media channel.  We are so excited to see what this wonderful group of learners and leaders bring to our school and community.  Please take a moment to explore the work that they have created so far this school year.  What they have created and achieved in such a short amount of time is truly incredible!  I am so proud of the effort and passion that Mr. Hostler and his students are pouring into this project and can't wait to see the positive impact that they are going to have on our school culture.  As we launch this project we want to make sure to highlight students, staff members, community organizations, athletics, academics, clubs, extra curricular activities, and all of the wonderful things that are taking place at CMS and in Carson City School District.  This is where we need your help!

We have created an e mail address for you to send information to be considered for our communication and media news networks.  Anything related to CMS that you would like to highlight, celebrate, or communicate in a positive manner will be considered.  All you have to do is send an e mail message to:  CMNEWZ@carson.k12.nv.us. That's it - it's that easy!  Please make sure to send as much information as you can, as well as a contact name and phone number or e mail address so that we can follow up with questions.  You can also contact the CMNEWZ CREW directly.  Check out their links below.  They are still building the media network before officially launching next Monday, October 3.  A huge thank you and congratulations to Mr. Hostler and our CMNEWZ CREW for supporting innovation in our school and community!  Congratulations on a successful launch!!!
