CMP NETWORK-WIDE GOVERNING BOARD ELECTIONS 2020

CMP NETWORK-WIDE GOVERNING BOARD ELECTIONS 2020

Parent Representative – Capitol & Shingle Springs

This spring, parents and guardians of CMP students will have the chance to vote for 2 members of the CMP Governing Board.  This memo explains the role of the Governing Board, duties of Board members, and election logistics.  Parents and guardians are encouraged to run for the Board.  The Governing Board currently consists of eight members.  Because all Governing Board members are responsible to, and for, the CMP network as a whole, all CMP parents and guardians (network-wide) may vote for the parent representatives.

A Message from the Superintendent: December Update Students Dressed for Pajama Day

Dear CMP Community,

Happy Holidays! I hope you all have a restful and relaxing break with loved ones. It's hard to believe we're nearing the end of 2019. CMP has been busy with rigorous instruction in classrooms, field trips, campus projects, and celebrations this month. Hopefully some of these pictures and memories will add a little more joy to your holiday season. Thanks again for all you do and see you in 2020!

Best,

Brett

A Message from the Superintendent: November Update CM Thanksiving Festivity

Dear CMP Community,

Happy Thanksgiving! I hope you all have some time to rest and relax with loved ones this week. As we all reflect on what we're thankful for there are a few things that rise to the very top of my list. In no particular order:

CMP Families

Our families bring so much to CMP. Your commitment to CMP through classroom volunteering, field trip participation, assisting with student enrichment opportunities, and organizing fundraisers are just a few examples of how parents help to make CMP a unique and special place.

CMP Teachers

The driving force behind every exceptional CMP classroom is a passionate and highly effective teacher. Our teachers pour their hearts and souls into our students every day. We ask a lot of them and they always deliver. Whether it's holding not just one but two credentials (Montessori and California Teaching Credentials), serving on different committees, developing rigorous and engaging lessons, or mentoring new team members our teachers are always up to the task.
 

A Message from the Superintendent: October Update Student dressed up as Waldo

Dear CMP Community,

It’s hard to believe we’re already well into October. We’ve had a great start to the school year, students and classrooms are normalized, and we’re excited for Fall. Here’s a quick photo overview of what’s been happening at CMP schools this month!

Sincerely,
Brett Barley
Superintendent

Superintendent's Message Superintendent

Dear CMP Community,

The first day of school is here and we are excited to welcome you all back tomorrow.  It's going to be a great year.  At each school there will be an opportunity for a "First Day of School Photo".  Feel free to snap a picture and hashtag #CMPFirstDayOfSchool if you're interested.

Also, we had a Board meeting last night.  Some highlights included:

  • Adoption of our Local Control Accountability Plans and budgets.
  • Election of the Board Chair, Vice President, and Treasurer.  Thank you to Rob Henderson (Board Chair), Scott Porter (Vice President), and Tamika L'Ecluse (Treasurer) for agreeing to serve this year!
  • Approval of our new Middle School Science program.
  • Staff recognition of Carrie Klagenberg, Richard Stanley, Becky Marsolais, Cherie Cooney, Lisa Coker, and the Carmichael Administrative team for important projects they lead over the summer.  
Superintendent's Message

Dear CMP Families,

We hope you all had a great first day of school! We were all so excited to welcome you back. I had a chance to visit every school today to celebrate the beginning of the school year with our school staff. Our central office also delivered "welcome back breakfasts" to teachers at each campus.

While we were out at our schools we took some silly photos with the props we left out for students and families. Even some of our Board members got in on the fun. Enjoy!

Superintendent's Message Brett Barley, Superintendent

Dear CMP Community,

A Message from the Executive Director: Happy Fourth of July MTC Training at SS

Happy Fourth of July!

My first day as California Montessori Project’s Superintendent was July 1st. I spent July 1st and 2nd participating in Montessori training at the training center in Shingle Springs. It was inspiring to see so many outstanding educators sharpening their Montessori skills. 

I’m looking forward to continuing to prepare for another fantastic school year upon our return from the holiday weekend!

A Message from the Executive Director Executive Director - Gary Bowman

12 June 2019

Dear members of the CMP Community,

This past week, each of our CMP campuses has held Graduation Ceremonies for our 8th Grade Class of 2019.  For the previous 16 years, I have had the great honor of attending these ceremonies throughout our network.  I have never been more proud of our CMP community than I am in this moment.

I am inspired by the speeches and songs by our talented students, as well as their accomplishments.  Most of all, I am touched by their sense of community (“Ohana”). 

A Message from the Executive Director Gary Bowman - Executive Director

CONGRATULATIONS, CMP Students, Staff and Families, for a fantastic 2018-19 school year. 

And, to CMP’s 8th Grade Graduates, I acknowledge, with great joy, your exceptional accomplishments!  This is YOUR moment to savor.  You belong to a very special learning community.  Some of you have been part of the CMP community for just a few years, while many of you have enjoyed CMP’s full Kindergarten-8th Grade continuum.

A Message from the Executive Director: "15 Wonderful Years" Thank you Message - Summer Thymes

30 June 2019

"15 Wonderful Years"

Dear CMP Community Members,

Early Sunday morning, I stopped by my favorite coffee  shop to grab a coffee to-go.  On the door was a large sign  stating "thank you for 15 wonderful years," announcing "Today is our last day."  Of course, I  was instantly struck by the message.  As CMP's Executive Director for 15 wonderful years, today (June 30)  is MY last day, as well!
