• Alert:

    Quick reminder: Students who attend in-person learning will receive a breakfast and lunch meal before they leave school on Friday afternoon. The meals are for Monday’s virtual learning day so there is less food deficiency throughout the county.

    In addition, TCSS buses will be rolling into communities Monday to distribute meals for kids 18 and younger. There will be enough meals for five days. Those receiving meals do not have to be TCSS students. Meals are available to each young person in the community. The bus route delivery sites are available here.

Principal's Message

Amy Thornton

Dear Callaway Middle Families,


On behalf of the staff at Callaway Middle School, I am happy to welcome you to the 2019-2020 school year! We are looking forward to a productive partnership with you to ensure our children can achieve their highest potential. We recognize that in order to be successful in school, our children need support from both the home and school. We know a stronger partnership with you will make a great difference in your child’s education. As partners, we share the responsibility for our children’s success and want you to know that we will do our very best to carry out our responsibilities. 


Our focus is to provide each child with new challenges that will result in a rewarding school experience. We want your child to be happy and successful at CMS, and you play a key role. That role is to continually show interest in, and to support your child. A child who knows his or her family is interested in and supports the school programs and staff, will almost always enjoy great success, and will have fewer problems in school. 


The wonderful CMS staff and I feel privileged to be a part of this school family. It takes all of us to help each and every child reach his/her potential. Working together we will have a wonderful year filled with learning, lifelong relationships and the joys of success and accomplishment. As the principal,  I am committed to providing your student with a high quality teacher who provides high quality instruction everyday in every class.


High performing schools have highly effective leaders, teachers, and teams. These schools also excel in family and community engagement. This year, we are going to excel in involving you! Please feel free to contact me at (706) 845-2080 or via email thorntonal@troup.org   We thank you for your support!!!
