Executive Director - Gary Bowman A Message from the Executive Director

12 June 2019

Dear members of the CMP Community,

This past week, each of our CMP campuses has held Graduation Ceremonies for our 8th Grade Class of 2019.  For the previous 16 years, I have had the great honor of attending these ceremonies throughout our network.  I have never been more proud of our CMP community than I am in this moment.

I am inspired by the speeches and songs by our talented students, as well as their accomplishments.  Most of all, I am touched by their sense of community (“Ohana”). 

Gary Bowman - Executive Director A Message from the Executive Director

CONGRATULATIONS, CMP Students, Staff and Families, for a fantastic 2018-19 school year. 

And, to CMP’s 8th Grade Graduates, I acknowledge, with great joy, your exceptional accomplishments!  This is YOUR moment to savor.  You belong to a very special learning community.  Some of you have been part of the CMP community for just a few years, while many of you have enjoyed CMP’s full Kindergarten-8th Grade continuum.

Executive Director - Gary Bowman A Message from the Executive Director: Why Do We Fundraise for Our CMP Schools?

Superintendent’s Message - May 28, 2019

“Why Do We Fundraise for Our CMP Schools?”

I was asked this question by a parent during one of our recent LCAP Stakeholder Input Sessions.  Great question, btw, and thanks for asking!  Here are a few thoughts:

First, and foremost, CMP’s school leaders are committed to providing the highest level of service to students, staff and families as we prioritize Montessori Methodology throughout our network.  We value our teaching assistants and our small class-sizes.  We offer our certificated staff a competitive compensatory package.  And, last, but not least, we recognize the importance of safe and clean facilities, and the amenities offered at each site.
