WHERE EAGLES SOAR!
Gary Bowman - Executive Director A Message from the Executive Director

January 18, 2019

At last Monday night’s meeting, the CMP Governing Board approved the 2017-18 Audited Financial Statements for each of our CMP schools. As an essential element required through the “Charter Schools Act of 1992” (Section 47605.6), “A charter school shall transmit a copy of its annual, independent, financial audit report for the preceding fiscal year.”

I am pleased to report that “there were no findings in the prior year.” This marks over a decade of ‘finding free’ audits, which speaks to the level of expertise and integrity demonstrated from within the organization.

School Tour 2019-2020 School Year Lottery Tours

Thank you for your interest in CMP Capitol. The enrollment process at all California Montessori Project campuses require parents/guardians to attend a lottery tour at each campus interested in.  During the tour, you will receive information regarding CMP (as a whole network and as an individual campus), student and parent expectations, the lottery process, classroom curriculum, and methodology.  You will also have the opportunity to have an inside look at a Montessori classroom. Lottery applications will be made available at the conclusion of the tour.  If you child has had or will have 1 year of prior Montesori experience, please click here for the Montessori Verification Form.  This form must be filled out by your child's Montessori school director and turned in with the Lottery Application.

Please be aware that these tours are designed for adults only.  We ask that you make alternative arrangements for any children. 

Thank you for your interest in CMP and we look forward to meeting you!

Gary Bowman - Executive Director A Message from the Executive Director

14 December, 2018

I recently came across the following quote by Fred Rogers (aka “Mister Rogers”): “It seems to me that some of us value information over wonder, and noise over silence. And I feel that we need a lot more wonder and a lot more silence in our lives.”

The related concepts of ‘wonder’ and ‘silence’ are prominent within the domain of Montessori methodology. The discipline of silence feeds the spirit and opens the door to a child’s sense of wonder, while contributing to a mindful attitude.

In this holiday season, my hope is that we will all have the opportunity (and discipline) to seek and find that quiet voice that brings a sense of ‘calmness’ to ourselves, our families and our communities.

May this holiday season bring rejuvenation and resilience to you and your loved ones.

Warmly, 

Gary

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
