David Mashburn- Principal

Dear Parents:

As we begin a new year, there are four things that you should know about our school:

  1. Your child’s safety, education and emotional well-being are our top priorities and will be at the forefront of every decision we make at Clear Creek Middle School.


  2. We have high expectations for students in both academics and in extracurricular activities. Schools should be a place for students to develop a sense of self, to experience pride in their work and to foster a love for learning and life.


  3. Our faculty will model life-long learning through continuous improvement in content knowledge, teaching strategies and classroom management.


  4. For us to offer the best environment for your child to flourish, we must have your help and support. Please take an active interest in your child’s education by finding connections between the curriculum and your family life. Watching television, going shopping, attending church, playing games, and other activities can provide rich opportunities to review and enrich the material your student is learning in school. Remember, parents are the best teachers that a child will ever have.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions or comment either by phone (706-276-5150) or through email (david.mashburn@gilmerschools.com).

With Bobcat Pride,

David Mashburn, Ed.S.

Clear Creek Middle School Principal
