Together We Get to the Heart of It A Message from the Executive Director: It Starts with Me...

11 February 2019

“It Starts with Me…”

Good Day, Dear Members of the CMP Community,

Our stakeholders, including students, staff, families and associates, continue to amaze me with their passion for, and commitment to, CMP.  I often hear references to the ‘spirit’ or ‘heart’ of the school as the stand-out characteristic.  I agree - and, cite this as the primary contributor to the joy I have experienced in serving the CMP community for the past 15 years.

Our Charter documents affirm the importance of that value, with the expectation that our children will contribute to “a better society and a peaceful world.”  I believe it is safe to say that this is a community value, which challenges each of us to find opportunities to promote respect in every circumstance, and to always seek peaceful and respectful resolution in the midst of conflict.

Gary Bowman - Executive Director A Message from the Executive Director

Dear CMP Community,

Dorothy has also served as Teacher, Board Member and Network Testing Coordinator.  Thank you for your 18 years of exemplary service to our CMP Community, Dorothy!

Dear Parents and Community Members,

 

This week, several CMP staff had the privilege of attending the Every Child Counts Symposium sponsored by the Association of California School Administrators (ACSA). The theme of the symposium was “See me, Hear Me, Teach Me.” This resonates with Montessori education because for us, each individual child is unique and special, needs recognition and given a voice in the community as we develop relationships and teach the whole child.  It also validated many of the practices and approaches that we use. Ms. Katherine and I attended different sessions and we learned so much in the areas of creating a community of care, restorative practices, social-emotional learning and special education, among others.  We are excited to share it with the community.

 

Have a great weekend!

 

Sincerely,

Bernie Evangelista

Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS)

We are proud to announce that CMP is collaborating as a network and is participating in PBIS training. The primary goals of PBIS are:

  • Development of a continuum of scientifically based behavior, social emotional and academic interventions and supports
  • Use of data to make decisions and solve problems
  • Making changes in the environment to prevent the development of problem behavior
  • Teaching and encouraging pro-social skills and behaviors
  • Implementation of evidence-based behavioral practices with fidelity and accountability
  • Universal screening and monitoring of student performance and progress

Our campus has formed a team including Administrators, Teachers, and Teaching Assistants who will attend trainings throughout the year.  The team will then share information learned with the staff during early release professional development days and staff meetings.  The team will continue to meet regularly to strategically implement PBIS strategies campus-wide creating consistent and clear expectations, positive reinforcement for desired behavior, and positive and constructive responses when problem behaviors arise.

Parents can support this endeavor by encouraging their children to always abide by the school rules of S.O.A.R:

Be Safe

Offer Peace

Always Respectful

Be Responsible
