On Wednesday, September 2nd, we will have our first Early Release Day in order to offer extended Professional Development and collaboration time to our amazing teaching staff.  We will be spending our first afternoon of Professional Development time with Dr. Lisa Ware, a Clinical Psychologist working with CMP.     Dr. Ware will be sharing supports for working with children who have difficult times with transitions, have feelings of anxiety about school work or peers, or struggle with maintaining focus and attention.  In addition, we will spend time planning our September small group lessons with our grade level teams, providing an opportunity for collaboration and a sharing of best practices.   

   During these Early Release Days (ERD’s), 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 ERD’s. 

-          Where possible, our Sports Teams are conducting earlier practices. Please watch for updates about each team’s practices from our Athletic Director, Desiree Thomas.

-          The Sequoia Middle School team is hosting a special extended Study Hall program for Middle School students on ERD’s.

-          Mr. Kevin is starting a Fall Drama Club Program which will be offered on Fridays and ERD’s.

   Please watch for additional details about clubs and programs being offered on upcoming ERD’s and feel free to get in touch if you have additional ideas or suggestions. 

Prop 55 Campus Expansion

Latest Aerial Photo of the New Upper Elementary Campus!

The 2015-16 School Year is off to a great start!  We have enjoyed watching the children participate in their PE lessons in the new gymnasium, play on the fields, and explore the nature that surrounds them.  As students walk on the path between the Lower Elementary and Upper Elementary Campuses, they listen for the sounds of the birds and watch for the ever-present butterfly.  We have dreams of planting butterfly bushes, lupines and daylillies along that path to attract more of mother nature's creatures.  

We are thoroughly enjoying all of the extra room that we have gained.  Class sizes provide much more room for the children to spread out their work, each side of the campus has its own Library, the Middle School has a Science Center, and, of course, the new gymnasium is already bustling with the activity of PE Classes and after-school Volleyball Team practices.  

As we continue our efforts to enhance our program and our gardens, we want to sincerely thank the teaching staff and the many parents who worked tirelessly over the summer to help us get to where we are today!

CMP Student Sings National Anthem

CMP’s very own “Adele” sang the National Anthem at Tuesday night’s River Cats Game! 
Kim Zawilski and Kelly Barton were able to visit with Adele before she performed. Quite a few CMP families showed up to show their support for Adele (and the River Cats)! 

AMS Accreditation

CMP Shingle Springs is proud to share that we continue to maintain our Montessori Accreditation through the American Montessori Society. It is an honor to know that our Montessori colleagues at the national level have given our school this accreditation!
