Principal's Corner


Dear Parents, Students, and Community Members,


Welcome to Chain of Lakes Middle School.  I am Karen Furno, and I am proud to be the principal of COLMS.  As principal, I have three primary goals for our school: providing a safe and secure environment for all students, helping teachers set up positive and active learning experiences, and giving a voice to everyone in our community.  COLMS is an excellent school with a strong academic program supplemented by solid athletic and extracurricular programs.  Our faculty and staff are dedicated to providing the best educational environment possible to every Osprey student.  We hope that you will enjoy your experiences here.


No matter how strong our personnel and programs are, we cannot reach our primary goals alone.  Our success is in part due to the amazing support provided by our parents, students, and community members.  The Chain of Lakes website has been designed to provide you with important information about our school.  We hope that our website will continue to keep you involved by providing the necessary information about academics, performances, upcoming events, athletics, and all the other happenings of Chain of Lakes Middle School.
We expect to have a great school year in which we are “Growing Together, Learning for Life.”
