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

Hello, Carmichael Families,

On Monday we will begin our regular drop-off routine. Starting at 8:00, students dropped off at the loop will gather in the small gym and then be escorted at 8:25 to their classrooms.

Parents wishing to walk their children to the classroom may still do so, but we ask that you wait in your car until 8:20, then walk to the gate, which will be opened at 8:25.

There is to be no drop-off and entry through the office, since there is no oversight of the children when entering that way.

Monday evening is the Back to School Night for Tk/K and upper elementary classes. Wednesday will be the meetings for lower elementary. On both evenings, we will begin with a general meeting at 6:00. In order to gather everyone together, Carmichael Parks is allowing us to use the large John Smith Hall which is next to the La Sierra office off of the Engle lot. This meeting will be brief, so please arrive on time, and remember, this is an adult only evening.

It was wonderful to see everyone back this week. Rest up, and we’ll see you Monday!

Ms. Kim
