Dear CMP American River Families,


As the school year is quickly coming to a close, I wanted to take the opportunity to reflect on some of the accomplishments and successes of our school this year-

ReadQuest Logo Renaissance Place Summer Reading Program

Accelerated Reader has a new reading incentive program called ReadQuest! This would be a great option to encourage Summer reading. In addition to summer reading suggestions, this program also provides more information on Renn Place and Accelerated Reader. The attached document is the toolkit to get you started: AR ReadQuest Toolkit. 

your opinion matters 2019-20 School Calendar Survey

Dear CMP Students, Parents, and Staff,

As the school year is coming to a close, I would like to thank all of you for your continued support of our Montessori philosophy and program.   Your input is valued and makes us stronger each year so that we can provide the best for our students.

During the 2019-2020 school year, CMP will be making a change that will impact that school year calendar.  Beginning in 2019-2020, CMP will offer five (5) weeks of intersession: one (1) week at Thanksgiving and the remaining four (4) weeks divided between the winter and spring breaks.   We believe this change will promote optimal learning for our students, as well as, programmatic, operational, and fiscal efficiency.

Please take a moment to complete this short survey by clicking this link: https://survs.com/survey/6c1ly95qsf.   After we collect the survey results, we will be sharing this information with you next fall.

The California Healthy Youth Act, which took effect in January 2016, requires school districts to provide students with integrated, comprehensive, accurate, and unbiased comprehensive sexual health and HIV prevention education at least once in middle school and once in high school. In accordance with the California Healthy Youth Act, CMP offers a course of study on Sexual Health education for middle school students using Positive Prevention PLUS materials.
