In CMCSS, we share a vision for the well-being of each of our students. Without the dedication and determination of our School Resource Officers, Substitutes, Warehouse, and Book Processing employees, implementing this vision would be impossible. Each day, this diverse group keeps our schools safe, classrooms operating effectively in the absence of teachers, and ensures students and employees have the textbooks, furniture, and other resources they need to succeed. Thank you, SROs, Substitutes, Warehouse, and Book Processing employees. You show up each day to protect and serve our students. Your planning and preparation ensure our schools operate effectively and efficiently. Thank you for serving above and beyond every year.
The 2022-2023 school year begins on Monday, August 8. Welcome to our young learners, who may be attending school for the first time! We look forward to a year of celebration, excitement, and courage. Together, we can support our students in creating a positive and uplifting environment!

Northwest High AP Chemistry students did not need to travel far to receive the field trip of a lifetime. In December, the students, who are members of the Health Science Academy, had the chance to speak with Dr. Alex Jahangir, MD, MMHC. Dr. Alex Jahangir is the chief of Nashville’s Coronavirus Task Force, Director of Orthopedic Trauma at Vanderbilt Medical Center, a professor at Vanderbilt University, and chairman of Nashville Metro’s Board of Health. Ms. Winstead and Dr. Jahangir are alumni of the same high school, and she seized the opportunity to request 15-20 minutes of his time for her students. Dr. Jahangir spent nearly 45 minutes listening to students and answering their questions. Ms. Ginna Winstead, the Chemistry teacher at NWHS, said, “When I announced this opportunity to my class, they were in disbelief that they would be able to speak to someone they see in the news on a daily basis. As one student put it, ‘He’s a local medical celebrity.’” During the call, they learned about the vaccine roll out to the public and misconceptions about COVID-19. Dr. Jahangir spoke candidly to the students about how to handle a high-stress career in the public eye and how to use your career to give back to the community. Many of these students are considering careers in Health Science. Dr. Jahangir’s first-hand knowledge was invaluable. As members of the Health Science Academy, they appreciated the opportunity to inquire about the always-changing and advancing field of medicine from a physician who has become pivotal in our region during the pandemic. Since the conversation, other health science classes have shared the Zoom recording with more students. Dr. Jahangir later tweeted out that he hopes “to call them colleagues in the future”.
