Don’t be too timid and squeamish about your actions. All life is an experiment – Ralph Waldo Emerson

LIFESKILLS May 15-June 2

TK-1st

  • Responsibility:  To be accountable for your actions

2nd-5th

  • Responsibility:  

  • Organization:  To plan, arrange and implement in an orderly way

CP Open House and Art Show is THIS Thursday, May 25 from 7:00-8:00: This event is a celebration of student work. CP students are excited to show off evidence of their learning and our teachers are excited to have you visit. Make sure to visit the art show in the MUR. Our art teacher, Mrs. Larson, has brought out the inner artist in our students.

Please remember that Open House is not a time for a parent teacher conference or “interviewing” teachers from the next grade level. Our teachers will be busy celebrating the students learning.

Open House Day will be a minimum day for all students.  TK and Kindergarten students will be dismissed at 11:50 and 1st through 5th graders at 12:12.  There is no lunch served on minimum days

CP Olympics 6/7/2017 - Parent Help Needed: ​​We need volunteers for CP Olympics on Wednesday, June 7th from 8:30- 11:45am.  Some volunteers come for the whole day (this is the best for us), while others come for either the first half (8:15- 10:05) and some come for the second half (9:55- 11:45).  Events such as the Olympics couldn't occur without volunteers like you.  We are so lucky to have such a supportive community.

Music Performances THIS Friday 5/26: Sara Stafford, our music teacher, helps bring out the inner musician in our students.

2nd and 3rd Grades: Will have “informances” during each classroom’s scheduled music time. Parents are encouraged to attend. Your child’s teacher should have communicated the specific time of the event.

4th and 5th Grades: Will perform in the MUR from 2:00-3:00. We hope to see you there.

MSD Full Day Kindergarten: On April 13, 2017, the Moraga School District Governing Board approved a full-day kindergarten program, commencing the 2017-2018 school year.  The District is pleased to offer additional time for student learning, time for free-choice, play, exploration, social development, language development, singing, reading stories, small group work, outdoor activities, as well as more time for students to develop social-emotional behavioral skills, including self-regulation, attentiveness, self-confidence, and interpersonal skills.

2017-2018 kindergartners will follow the first grade early/late bird, parent conference and minimum day schedule.  School begins at 8:25 AM for early birds and ends at 1:55 PM.  School begins at 9:25 AM for late birds and ends at 3:05 PM.  All kindergartners will follow the early bird schedule the first three weeks of school as do first graders.  Recess, lunch and other schedules will be planned by each site’s principal and kindergarten staff.  

 

Reminder - 3rd Grade All Early Start Time

All Moraga School District 3rd grade students will again follow an 8:25 AM to 1:55 PM instructional schedule the first three weeks of school, August 21 through September 8.  Starting Monday, September 11, all 3rd grade students will begin the full-day schedule of 8:25 AM - 3:05 PM (1:50 PM on Wednesdays).

The three week early release period provides third grade teachers time to individually assess their student's reading and math levels to group students for instruction, evaluate a student's reading accuracy level, comprehension, and fluency, select texts that will be productive for instruction, and identify students who may be eligible for additional support.

3rd grade teachers will contact parents to schedule dates and times for individual student assessment appointments.​​​​​​​

YOU ARE MEF: The educational experience of every Camino Pablo student is enriched and enhanced every day because of gifts to the Moraga Education Foundation.  CP has additional staff and programs at our school because of the generosity of MEF donors.  

To work in a community that values and supports its schools and education is amazing.   Every day, students directly interact with teachers and staff that are a reflection of your support.  From PE with Ms. Peterson and Mr. Studebaker, to art with Ms. Larson, to computers with Ms. Lynch, and library with Ms. Braitberg to your student’s classroom aide, donations to MEF are tangible and their impact is felt all around.  

In addition, donations are enhancing the technology at CP and supporting the new Lucy Calkins’ Reading and Writing program.  These will serve your students well as they continue their educational journey throughout CP and beyond.

I am so grateful for your support of our school.  Thank you for sharing your time, talents, and financial gifts.  There is just over 2 months left in this year’s MEF annual campaign.  Please consider making a donation today at www.moragaeducation.org to help support your student every day.

CP Garden Clean-up Day - THIS WEEK: Have you visited our beautiful CP Garden lately?  Come join us for a fun and relaxing CP Garden Spring weeding and planting day on Sunday afternoon, 5/21.  Let's fill our school garden with fun and friends!  To sign up, please go to http://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0b48abad2ba2fc1-cpgarden

How Many Classes Will There Be Next Year in My Child’s Grade? The number of class sections for each grade level is decided as a district management team based on overall Moraga School District enrollment. Starting in February, after TK/K registration, the principals and superintendent begin tracking enrollment. In May we look at enrollment and make preliminary decisions on how many classes there will be at each site. However, over the summer students move in and out of the district which can cause changes to our spring planning. Enrollment guides our decisions and enrollment is not final until August. We appreciate your patience
