Principal's Message
Welcome to another great year here at Cottonwood Middle School –
Home of the Lobos,

With changes abound this year, some things never change, namely the high expectations we maintain for all members of this learning community. Despite the noticeable facelift around campus, which has invigorated both staff and students, we have embraced the philosophy of family and community as a path to success for all students. Our mascot has become far more than a simple icon, it represents the pack mentality of shared commitment and sacrifice so that all members can thrive. We acknowledge that all students face hardships, especially in this interconnected age, but we also know that with guidance and compassion we have the power to negate these circumstances and provide a path to lifelong success. Upon that foundation students find the strength thrive.

So what does it mean to be a Lobo?

L - Loyalty
Lobos prosper on a pack mentality of extreme loyalty and devotion to the community that binds the individuals together despite harsh times.
O - Opportunists
Lobos take advantage of all opportunities presented, knowing that those moments can be fleeting.
B - Boundless
Lobos are not limited by their soundings. They explore and discover to expand their perspectives and grow as a team.
O – Organization
Lobos are successful in difficult environments because they maintain order in their hierarchy. Rules exist for a reason.
S - Safety in Numbers
Lobos acknowledge they can’t do it alone. They rely on each other while because we are only as strong as our weakest member while the “lone wolf” may perish

With this philosophy before us, we will progress as a pack, knowing that unity brings strength and with strength we can accomplish more than we ever dreamed.

Proud Principal of Cottonwood Middle School
