Greetings American River Families,
Please find attached the campus newsletter for October. In addition, please note the following reminders for this week:
- Parent/Teacher conferences will be held this week, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, October 18, 19, and 20. School will be dismissed at noon on these 3 days. The next early release days will be Wednesday, November 1 and Wednesday, November 15.
- Tonight, Tuesday, October 17, is the Middle School dinner night out at Chipotle on Sunrise Blvd in Citrus Heights. Tonight’s event lasts from 4-8pm. Bring in the flyer, show it on your smart phone, or tell the cashier you are supporting CMP to ensure that 50% of the proceeds from your order will go toward supporting our middle school immersion trips.
- Friday, October 20th is the first ever CMP American River Card Board Challenge. We are challenging our CMP American River classrooms to build something awesome out of cardboard. The inspiration for this event sprang from the short documentary called, Caine’s Arcade in which a boy creates a cardboard arcade in the front of his dad’s automotive business. If you have not seen this video, check it out on Youtube. Although this event is a classroom event, we still need parent help. As you can imagine, we are going to have a lot of cardboard to move before and after the event. If you can spare a few moments to help your classroom move cardboard down to the blacktop on Friday morning or take the cardboard away at the end of the day, we could really use your help. We are so excited to see what the students will build. As the Chagall class says, “Challenge? We love challenges!”
