Prepared environment Welcome to Our Beautiful Classrooms

Classrooms are carefully prepared environments in Montessori education, designed to promote Self-Discipline, Sense of order, Contentment, Focus/Concentration, Genuine concern for others, Independence, Love of silence, Love of learning, Self-motivation, and Happiness. These are the characteristics of the “normalized child” who has their developmental needs met. Maria Montessori considered the normalization process of premier importance, laying the groundwork for a life of learning. Read more about our Prepared Environment by clicking here!

CMP T shirts WE DRESS FOR SUCCESS!

Here at CMP American River we do enforce a dress code (not a uniform policy) that promotes the comfort and safety of all students. Importantly, sneakers should be worn for PE days, sandals should be secured with a back strap and have a flat heel, and distracting branding and cartoon characters should be worn on weekends. We post a copy of our dress code on the website as well as in the campus office.

Salad bar DAILY HOT LUNCH PROGRAM WITH SAN JUAN UNIFIED

The American River campus is so thankful for our super lunch lady, Ms. Lucy, and the kid-friendly, healthy meals she provides. Favorite choices include popcorn chicken and cheesy breadsticks; and a salad bar and milk is always included. Students eat together in our cafeteria and practice grace and courtesy by observing quiet eating times, listening to announcements, and cleaning up after themselves. Students with food allergies are welcome at our allergy-sensitive tables. Please click here for information on San Juan Unified's Free/Reduced Meal Program.

Maria Montessori with children Happy Birthday Maria Montessori

Each year we celebrate the teachings and dynamic life of Maria Montessori. She was a doctor, research scientist, and educator. Her landmark philosophy recognizes that children have a natural desire to learn and that stages of development exist for which there should be corresponding prepared educational environments. Montessori education provides pathways for creation, exploration, imagination, decision making, problem solving, and healthy social relationships that lead to concrete skills in concentration, academic and life skills.

CM Thanksiving Festivity A Message from the Superintendent: November Update

Dear CMP Community,

Happy Thanksgiving! I hope you all have some time to rest and relax with loved ones this week. As we all reflect on what we're thankful for there are a few things that rise to the very top of my list. In no particular order:

CMP Families

Our families bring so much to CMP. Your commitment to CMP through classroom volunteering, field trip participation, assisting with student enrichment opportunities, and organizing fundraisers are just a few examples of how parents help to make CMP a unique and special place.

CMP Teachers

The driving force behind every exceptional CMP classroom is a passionate and highly effective teacher. Our teachers pour their hearts and souls into our students every day. We ask a lot of them and they always deliver. Whether it's holding not just one but two credentials (Montessori and California Teaching Credentials), serving on different committees, developing rigorous and engaging lessons, or mentoring new team members our teachers are always up to the task.
