Expand the definition of 'reading' to include non-fiction, humor, graphic novels, magazines, action adventure, and, yes, even websites. It's the pleasure of reading that counts; the focus will naturally broaden. A boy won't read shark books forever. Jon Scieszka

Front Circle EARTH DAY Planting: On we will need parent and student volunteers to help beautify our front circle by planting new plants! We plan to start at . Volunteers are welcome any time throughout the day (planting should be finished by early afternoon). Please bring your own shovels/tools.
CAASPP Testing: Each grade students take the CAASPP test. This test assess students in the areas of English Language Arts (ELA) and Math. The state uses the results of these tests as one factor in determining our progress as a school and district. Here is a link to the testing schedule. If a child is absent during a testing session he/she has to miss class time to make-up the missed session. Attendance on these days is important.
The CP team spends a lot of time working on classroom placement for next year. Our main goal when building classes is to create balanced classes. Balancing classes requires us to look at many variables such as: students that need extra support, academic progress, peer relationships, etc. I work on this process with each grade level twice in May. During this process we build balanced classes and I place each class with a specific teacher.
If you feel that your child has a unique situation or need that I need to be aware of during this careful placement process please send me an email by . These requests should not be made through the teacher. Requests for a specific teacher will not be granted. Please know that your request will be considered within the larger context of balancing classes.

PARENT VOLUNTEERS NEEDED! - Too Good For Drugs Program
Drug-awareness education is included in the 4th/5th grade Health Education Standards. Traditionally, parents have taken an active role in presenting these lessons to students, in coordination with the classroom teacher. Again this year, we need parent support!
We are seeking parent volunteers to teach the Too Good for Drugs (TGFD) Curriculum in our 4th and 5th grade classrooms. The curriculum is fully developed, including lesson plans and all materials. You do not need to be a parent of a 4th or 5th grader to participate. Also, training is provided so that parents feel confident about presenting, along with management support from the classroom teacher. This is truly a great opportunity to get into the classrooms and support student leaning.
The TGFD curriculum has been recently updated to include more games, interaction, and real-life problem-solving situations (social media, peer pressure, etc.) to make the lessons more engaging for students. The curriculum consists of 8 – 10 lessons, delivered over approximately 2 weeks in individual classrooms.
If you are interested in getting involved with CP’s TGFD program, please contact Principal Chris Reddam at email@example.com by . A parent training will be scheduled for May 2nd, so that classroom lessons can be delivered during the month of May.
