Learning Continuity and Attendance Plans
Prepared environment Welcome to Our Beautiful Classrooms

Classrooms are carefully prepared environments in Montessori education, designed to promote Self-Discipline, Sense of order, Contentment, Focus/Concentration, Genuine concern for others, Independence, Love of silence, Love of learning, Self-motivation, and Happiness. These are the characteristics of the “normalized child” who has their developmental needs met. Maria Montessori considered the normalization process of premier importance, laying the groundwork for a life of learning. Read more about our Prepared Environment by clicking here!

CMP T shirts WE DRESS FOR SUCCESS!

Here at CMP American River we do enforce a dress code (not a uniform policy) that promotes the comfort and safety of all students. Importantly, sneakers should be worn for PE days, sandals should be secured with a back strap and have a flat heel, and distracting branding and cartoon characters should be worn on weekends. We post a copy of our dress code on the website as well as in the campus office.

GO GREEN TEAM AND CMP YOUNG LEADHERSHIP!

Our CMP American River Middle School is inspiring and developing future leaders through exciting Leadership Opportunities this year: The Green Team and CMP Young Leadership. The Green Team has reached out to all teachers to discuss green issues including recycling and littering; they will launch an education campaign with younger students to identify which bins are used for what types of recycling. The CMP Young Leaders focuses on building our campus community- they created their first video Newscast of the school year, demonstrating campus W.A.V.E. guiding principles of Working together, Acting responsibly, Valuing community, and Empowering themselves and others!

COUNSELOR'S CORNER - WELCOME BACK TO SCHOOL

Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year!  It is absolutely heartwarming to see students back on campus this year.  School counseling is intended for students with social-emotional struggles or challenges that affect their learning here at school.  Counseling interventions are designed to be brief and solution-focused, and target specific issues or concerns that are directly impacting the child's education.  Possible interventions may include: one-time or periodic check-ins, re-teach of Second Step skills/concepts, individual/small group counseling sessions, or recommendation to outside community resources.  If your child is referred to counseling by his/her teacher or other staff member, you will be notified of the concern before it is brought to my attention.  Please click more to read on...
 

CMP 20th Anniversary

Welcome to 2021-2022 school year.  This year marks a momentous milestone for CMP, our 20th Anniversary!

On Wednesday, August 4, 2021, CMP kicked off the celebration with a ‘Founder’s Panel”.  The CMP-Community had a chance to hear from the four individuals who started CMP twenty years ago on how CMP came into existence, the challenges they faced along the way, and what they are most proud of about CMP twenty years later.  It was an inspiring event.

Please follow the link to view the recording of the “Founder’s Panel”.

Many thanks to Norman Lorenz, Deanna Gardner, Marion MacGillivray, and Keith Alpaugh.
