Good Evening, Carmichael Families,

I have a couple of important items to bring to your attention.

First, tomorrow evening is our monthly CAC meeting. All parents are welcome to attend. We meet at 5:45 in the Gibbons Room, and parking is available in the Gibbons lot. Should you have a topic that you would like to discuss, please email me in advance and let me know. If the subject falls within the CAC area of focus, I will add it to the agenda. If not, I can arrange a personal meeting.

And as a reminder, Friday is a minimum day. Dismissal times are posted on the web site. We will hold our annual Walk-a-Thon in the morning on Friday, as well.

Hope you are enjoying the lovely fall weather.

Take care,

Ms. Kim

Message from the Principal

August 18, 2014

Dear CMP Carmichael Families:

Welcome to the start of the 2014-2015 school year.  The office and teaching staff are excited to see our new and returning students and families.

We would like to share with you some important 2014-2015 school calendar additions.  The California Department of Education just recently notified districts of their testing windows for the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) and the Science California Standards Test (CST).

The testing window for the Smarter Balanced on-line tests for English Language Arts and Mathematics for grades 3-8 will open on Wednesday, March 4 and close on Wednesday, May 27, 2015.  Science CSTs for 5th and 8th grade students are scheduled to take place the week of May 4 through May 13, 2015.

It is critical that students are present during our scheduled testing time; therefore, vacations must take place during scheduled intersession dates. 

Please refer to the updated Governing Board approved 2014-2015 school calendar on the CMP website.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me or your campus principal.

Thank you,

Mickey Slamkowski                            

Director of Program
