A Message from the Executive Director

Wow!  What a fantastic first day of school this has been!  I had the pleasure of greeting CMP students, staff and families this morning, and was thrilled to see the many smiling faces and to experience the excitement of  First Day ...a day filled with hope, opportunity and optimism. 

Thank you for choosing CMP, and thank you for your support as we serve together, exemplifying and modeling respect, kindness and civility in all things.

In the coming weeks, I will be sharing information about many of our noteworthy endeavors and projects. 

I am humbled by (and appreciative of) the efforts of our incredible staff who are committed to the highest level of service to our students and families.

In closing, I share the words of President John F. Kennedy:  "We must find time to stop and thank the people who make a difference in our lives." 

Warmly, Gary

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.
