A Message from the Superintendent: School Closure Update

Dear CMP Families,

Today the Governor announced that schools would remain closed until the end of the school year. I've recorded a video about what it means for CMP. If you can't view the video I've pasted the text of the video below.
 

Good Evening CMP Community,

Today the Governor announced that California schools would remain closed until the end of the school year.  Late yesterday we received a letter from State Superintendent Thurmond with the same message. In the letter the State Superintendent writes:

"[I]t currently appears that our students will not be able to return to school campuses before the end of the school year. This is in no way to suggest that school is over for the year, but rather we should put all efforts into strengthening our delivery of education through distance learning."

CMP COVID-19 Update - All Campuses Closure Extended

Dear CMP Community:

Today, we are writing to update you on the anticipated length of our closure as well as to provide an update on our current efforts to meet the academic and social and emotional needs of our students.

CMP continues to carefully monitor the recommendations and directives issued by local, state, and federal leaders. On Wednesday, Sacramento County issued a Public Health Order directing all residents to stay at home, unless they are providing or accessing essential services.  Yesterday, the Governor issued a “Stay at Home” order for all of California.

As a result of these orders, all CMP schools will remain closed at least through April 20th.  The CMP Board will meet on April 20th to decide on any potential closure extensions.

A Message from the Superintendent: January & February Update Part 1

Dear CMP Community,

January and February have come and gone. But not without some exciting events and activities at all CMP schools. See below for Part 1 of a photo journal of the last two months at CMP!  More to come soon!

CMP COVID 19 (Coronavirus) Update - New Guidance from Department of Public Health and Department of Education

Dear CMP Community,

We want to keep you updated and informed on CMP’s response to COVID-19 (Coronavirus) which we have been monitoring all weekend. 

At around 12pm on Saturday we learned that Elk Grove Unified School District would be closing school next week.  In our message to the CMP Community on 2/27/20 we indicated that CMP would be following the lead of our authorizing districts and following guidance from public health agencies on our response to COVID-19. As a result, when Elk Grove Unified School district announced it was canceling school this week we also canceled school at our two Elk Grove sites for Monday and Tuesday.


All other sites (Capitol, American River, Carmichael, Orangevale, and Shingle Springs) remain open this week.

Spring Fest!

Save the date for Spring Fest 2020 on Saturday, April 25 from 2 pm- 6 pm at CMP Capitol Campus!

Enrollment Image LOTTERY AND ENROLLMENT- TK/K Lottery Postponed

CMP continues to carefully monitor the recommendations and directives issued by local, state, and federal leaders.  Yesterday, the Governor issued a “Stay at Home” order for all of California.  Under this new order, we felt it best to postpone the upcoming TK/K lottery.  We will not be live streaming the lottery this coming Monday at 3:30.  We are shooting to run a lottery at the end of April, but we will need to remain flexible. Due to the rapidly evolving situation, we will continue to monitor the public health guidance and make adjustments as necessary. 

You can expect to receive future communications via email and we will be updating this website.

Around Campus - November 2019

Dear Parents and Community Members,


Thank you so much for supporting our APEX Fundraiser. We raised over $17,000.00 this year that will go towards computers, campus beautification and field trips. We appreciate your participation and assistance in helping make this happen. The students enjoyed learning valuable skills and values from the APEX team members the past two weeks.
On another note, I hope all of you sign up for parent conferences this week. Our goal is to meet with 100% of parents and to update you on the progress of your child. If the schedule doesn't work for you, please contact your child's teacher so they can set up an appointment with you.
Have a great week!
 

Sincerely,

Bernie Evangelista
Principal, CMP-Capitol Campus

Capitol Campus News

Dear Parents and Community Members,
We had special visitors last week touring our school: Assemblyman Kevin McCarty with two of his staffers, along with Brett Barley, our Superintendent. They visited several of our classrooms and were impressed by the students' work and lessons given by teachers.

On another note, I am pleased to announce that we rolled out the PBIS Program this week. PBIS stands for Positive Behavioral Intervention and Supports. The aim of this program is to develop and promote a culture where positive behavior and kindness is the norm. It is a proactive approach where the focus is prevention of inappropriate behavior, not punishment. Behavioral expectations will be taught and students will be acknowledged for demonstrating those positive behaviors. We are already seeing very positive results!

Have a great week!

Bernie Evangelista
Principal, CMP-Capitol Campus

Fundraising Committee Volunteers Opportunity!

Fundraising Committee Volunteers Needed

"Fundraising" can sometimes be an intimidating word, but serving on the Fundraising Committee doesn't necessarily mean we're only soliciting donations. We will need help with event planning, marketing, making decorations, ideas, feedback, staffing and whatever your time and energy allows you to contribute. Some things can be done at home on your own time too. We will meet every 2nd Tuesday of the month, starting on Tuesday, September 10 at 5:30 pm in the MP Room (unless otherwise noted). The meeting is usually about an hour. If you think you are interested (even if you cannot commit to the monthly meeting) or have questions, please e-mail Zenia LaPorte at zalaporte@yahoo.com.

- Zenia LaPorte, CMP - Capitol Fundraising Chair
