Physical Education: Aquatic P.E. for all CMS Students 

All CMS students will swim during their Physical Education class during one week of the 2019-2020 school year.  Students will be responsible for bringing their swim suit and a towel in a plastic bag daily as there is really no locker space dedicated to wet things. Since we are swimming during school time, students must be modestly covered.  Swim suit requirements are as follows:

  • Students must wear actual swim suits.  No cotton clothing is allowed as cotton clogs the pool filters. 
  • Girls need to wear either a one piece suit.  A two piece suit can be worn, but must be covered by a rash guard.  Girls can wear board shorts over their suits if they like.
  • Boys need to wear swim trunks or board shorts, Speedo or Jammers. Boys may also wear rash guards
  • Students can also bring goggles.
  • Students with shoulder length or longer hair will need to wear it tied back or wear a swim cap. No Metal hair clips allowed.
  • Please label all towels! 

Students will be working on Aquatic Safety Skills, improvement of basic swimming strokes, as well as cardio-vascular fitness.  The PE Team are Red Cross Certified Water Safety Instructors, and the pool is fully staffed with plenty of qualified Lifeguards on deck. Students unable to swim due to illness or injury must bring a parent note to be excused. ALL missed swim days must be made up.  Make up days and times will be announced.   Please let your P.E. instructor know if you have questions or concerns.

KCMS Daily Broadcast

KCMS is Coronado Middle School's daily broadcast television station.  This incredible, fully produced student "run" class is displayed to students every day at CMS through our closed circuit T.V. and all classes watch and listen to announcements about important information and events occurring on campus and in the community.  In addition, all students view live and pre-recorded "packages" from the students who create them in the KCMS class which cover relevant topics about our school, community and larger global society.  Some of the topics and packages discussed by guests who appear live such as the principal, assistant principal, staff, students and community members, include; safety procedures at school and in the community, character education topics and reminders, events happening in the community, extracurricular activity events and club announcements from our Partner in Education groups such as the Islander Sports Foundation (ISF), the Student and Family Enrichment organization (SAFE), the Parent Teacher Organization (PTO), and the Coronado Parks and Recreation and the Coronado Schools Foundation (CSF).

KCMS is only made possible, by the generosity of the Coronado Schools Foundation (CSF) who fully funds the class and most of the equipment.
