A Message from the Executive Director: Fight the Good Fight…With Respect, Civility and Dignity Gary Bowman - Executive Director

15 March 2019

“Fight the Good Fight…With Respect, Civility and Dignity”

In recent months, I have attended Charter School Conferences and Legal Forums, and have learned about the latest legislative proposals which would dramatically impact California’s Charter School Movement (indeed, supporters of Charter Schools have reason to be concerned about pending Assembly Bills 1505, 1506, 1507 and 1508).

I would state, there has NEVER been a time when the CMP community has NOT fought for the opportunity “to offer a quality, tuition-free Montessori Education that challenges our students to reach their full potential.”

Dear Parents and Community Members,

 

Hello from Washington D.C.! Ms. O, Ms. Jill, Ms. Shelley and I, along with 20 other CMP staff and over 4,000 members worldwide are attending the annual Montessori Event presented by the American Montessori Society. Being here, surrounded by commited and dedicated Montessorians, reignites our passion to provide the best Montessori education to our students and families. There are so many interesting and relevant workshops and we will definitely bring back a lot of information to share with the rest of our staff and community.

Meanwhile, thank you for attending spring conferences and meeting with your child's teacher. I hope the conferences went well. I was impressed by the growth the students made this semester.

 

Have a great weekend!

 

Sincerely,

Bernie Evangelista

Principal, Capitol Campus

PBIS (Positive Behavior Interventions and Support) PBIS Logo

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
