2019-20 School Calendar Survey

Dear CMP Students, Parents, and Staff,

As the school year is coming to a close, I would like to thank all of you for your continued support of our Montessori philosophy and program.   Your input is valued and makes us stronger each year so that we can provide the best for our students.

During the 2019-2020 school year, CMP will be making a change that will impact that school year calendar.  Beginning in 2019-2020, CMP will offer five (5) weeks of intersession: one (1) week at Thanksgiving and the remaining four (4) weeks divided between the winter and spring breaks.   We believe this change will promote optimal learning for our students, as well as, programmatic, operational, and fiscal efficiency.

Please take a moment to complete this short survey by clicking this link: https://survs.com/survey/6c1ly95qsf.   After we collect the survey results, we will be sharing this information with you next fall.
