Welcome to the CPMS Gateway Website 

Current Project News for 7th graders

The kids and I are so excited to tell you about our current project.  The final design and modeling project through PLTW is to create a therapeutic toy for a child with cerebral palsy.  The children are asked to create prototypes and a 3D model of the toy.  After giving it some thought, I wanted to take it a step further and actually have the kids be able to make real therapeutic toys to give to our ICAP students.  I created a list of criteria for these toys after speaking with the ICAP teacher and had the kids start brainstorming.  Let me just say that they are creating some really impressive toys.  If you can help at all with this by supplying any materials your child may need, we would greatly appreciate it.  I also have a wishlist of items that we are always in need of during the year.

Thank you so much for everything this year!

Corrections Form for daily work, quizzes, and tests.  

The form is a google doc.  You can either print it out and write on it, or you can MAKE A COPY of the form, fill it out, then share it with me.   For the parent signature if you are sharing your doc with me, you can have your parents email me or write a note that they have seen your original grade and you have studied/redone your work.
