Hello CPMA Families, 

We are in our 2 week countdown to winter break! 

When we return from break students will have 13 school days before the end of Semester 1 January 19th, 2023. 

We love to celebrate our amazing scholar artists! On Tuesday during Homeroom we will invite our students who have a 3.5 GPA and above to the Black box for a treat and recognition. 

We need your feedback! 

As we begin to prepare for our 2024-25 budget/staffing season we are requesting that all families complete the following surveys:  

We will have a Coffee with the Principal Tuesday December 5th at 9:15am- 9:45am in the CPMA Cafeteria, as well as a Principal Chat on Zoom Thursday December 7th 2023 at 9:00-9:30am.

All Community members are welcomed to attend as a guest and contribute to the discussions. Only Members are able to vote for the action items listed on the agendas.

Housing Questionnaire for Families

SDUSD is conducting a housing questionnaire to better understand the housing needs and challenges of our school community. This questionnaire is mandatory for all families and will help us provide support and resources for those who are experiencing housing insecurity or homelessness. A hard copy was sent home Tuesday, 11/28.

The questionnaire is confidential and will not affect your child’s enrollment or education at our school. We respect your privacy and we are here to help you and your child succeed.

Please fill out the online form by clicking on this link: Housing Questionnaire Form. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Claudia Camacho at ccamacho@sandi.net 

Thank you for your cooperation and participation.

Cell Phone Usage

We appreciate students being cooperative and communicative with us regarding this policy. Our cell phone policy is based on the District Student Cell Phone Use Policy. It contributes to gossip, bullying, and negative interactions on campus. They also distract students from the learning environment. 

Core Academy 

In an effort to help prepare students obtain the skills and knowledge necessary to meet the ongoing demands of the 21st Century, CPMA staff will conduct Core Academy: Supporting Student Achievement Success, a Saturday session for students to receive additional support in their core classes (Math, Language Arts, Social Studies, Science).

Bullying Prevention and Reporting

We encourage our students to be up-standers and if they "See Something, Say Something" to reduce bullying on our campus. We investigate all instances of bullying that are reported to our school site. If there are any concerns please email your students counselor or an AP, and or complete the bullying reporting form: Online Bullying Reporting Form
