Each class and/or grade level will be participating in its own way; please refer to your child)’s classroom newsletter for more information on how their class will be participating as we get closer to that date.CMP - Shingle Springs Campus

During these ERDs there are several opportunities available for your children:
- Club M is offering a special rate for their new ERD Program which runs from 12:00-3:00pm only on ERDs.
- Special tutoring programs are offered (by invitation) for students who may benefit from an extra work time, in a small group environment, on subjects like Radical Report Writing, Narrative Story Telling, and Wacky Wednesdays which covers language and math skills.
- Wherever possible, our Sports Teams are conducting earlier practices. Please watch for updates about each team's practices from our Athletic Director, Des Thomas.

I had the pleasure of meeting with our Campus Advisory Council (CAC) members as well as several parents at last week’s monthly CAC Meeting. We discussed a variety of ways to improve the communications that come out from the classrooms and the school office. Several constructive ideas were shared and it was a pleasure to hear from our parent community about the things they would like to hear more about.
We also discussed several campus improvement projects, including the complete reconstruction of the Wisteria deck, some repairs due to abnormally harsh rains, and the new garden beds that were built for the 4th-6th graders and the Middle School students. We are in the process of putting the finishing touches on the Garden of Learning area so that the 2nd and 3rd grade classrooms can each adopt a planting area and have some fun working in their garden.
The CAC asked that we advertise for parent help on several small projects around the school. If you can help with any of the following, please contact us in the office by phone or email:
- Transforming our decomposed granite stairs between Laurel and Wisteria to a more permanent CONCRETE set of stairs!
- Building beds for our new “Loose Parts” garden
- Planting in the front circle garden of the Lower Campus
- Installing two sets of parallel bars and a set of monkey bars on the Upper Elementary playground
Please mark your calendars for the next CAC Meeting which will take place on Thursday, Feb. 16th from 8:30-9:30am in the Upper Campus Conference Room.
