Student Safety: Thursday's violent tragedy was a brutal, and all to frequent, reminder that an educator’s job has changed in the past two decades. Just being prepared to teach is no longer adequate. As a school community it is now critical that we think through, and practice for, these type of violent situations in a way that prepares us without creating a culture of fear for our students.


Our current emergency plan outlines protocols for many different emergency situations, including a "lockdown" situation. This year the Moraga School District Student Safety Committee is working on creating "Active Shooter Protocols" for inclusion in each school's emergency plan. I am on the subcommittee working on these protocols.


Our newly approved School Site Plan also includes a goal for more staff and community work around our emergency plan, and future active shooter protocols. The school district is also considering using safety experts to do an assessment at each of our school sites for the purposes of giving recommendations that would improve the safety for students, staff, and parents. Once we have an active shooter protocol I will work with our PTA on educating the community. 


One School, One Book: Starting March 2 the entire CP community will be reading the same book for a program called One School, One Book. This book will be introduced to students at an assembly on Friday, March 2. After the assembly each student will bring home his/her own copy (thank you PTA) of the book along with a reading calendar. Our goal is to build a community of readers. Everyone - students, parents, staff - will be participating. This is meant to be a family read aloud experience. We will also put links to podcasts of each "chapter" in the school website. This is a fun way to listen to the "chapter" read by a CP staff member. In school your child will be invited to answer daily trivia questions.


CP SCIENCE FAIR: It’s almost time for the 31st annual Science Fair, to be held Thursday, April 19th, 2018 at 7:00pm. This is an optional activity for 3rd, 4th and 5th graders. If you’re interested in participating, here’s what you need to do:


  1. Look at the information on the back and come up with a topic ---- a scientific question you want to answer.  I can give you some ideas or you can check out books from our library (the internet is also a good source for project ideas).


  1. Fill out and submit an application (including your parent’s signature) by March 9th. 


  1. Mrs. H will approve your project idea (or help you refine it) and give you a Science Fair Instruction Booklet with lots of helpful information.  DO NOT begin your project until you have received approval!


We are looking  looking forward to seeing your scientific discoveries! Here is a link to the Entry Form.





Supporting Adolescents Through Middle School: Starting February 15 the Moraga School District is offering a series focused on supporting our students in middle school. Please click here for more information.


The Moraga iKind Project Presents: He Named Me Malala (followed by a student panel) - February 21 at 7:00 PM at JM’s Auditorium - This extraordinary film presents the young Pakistani female activist and Nobel Peace Prize laureate Malala Yousafzai, who has spoken out for the rights of girls, especially the right to education, since she was a young child. The film also recounts how she miraculously survived and has become even more eloquent in her quest after being hunted down by a Taliban as part of the organization's violent opposition to girls' education. The title refers to the Afghani folk hero Malalai of Maiwand, after whom her father named her.  A powerful film for everyone!  Event details:, followed by a student panel.
