The topic for the first month is Montessori 101 with guest speaker, Teresa Lyday-Selby.  Ms. Kathleen will be hosting her first Principal's Café of the 2022-2023 School Year in September - in person!  ParentSquare will have all the details.

Classrooms are carefully prepared environments in Montessori education

Classrooms are carefully prepared environments in Montessori education, designed to promote Self-Discipline, Sense of order, Contentment, Focus/Concentration, Genuine concern for others, Independence, Love of silence, Love of learning, Self-motivation, and Happiness. These are the characteristics of the “normalized child” who has their developmental needs met. Maria Montessori considered the normalization process of premier importance, laying the groundwork for a life of learning. While this year's back-to-school nights will be virtual, they are a great time to learn about classroom expectations as well as meet teachers, the music teacher, librarian and school counselor!

Here at CMP American River we do enforce a dress code (not a uniform policy) that promotes the comfort and safety of all students. Importantly, sneakers should be worn for PE days, sandals should be secured with a back strap and have a flat heel, and distracting branding and cartoon characters should be worn on weekends. We request CMP shirts are worn on all field trips for easy identification and CMP Spirit Day coming up on September 2. CMP shirts and sweatshirts may be purchased in the school office for $15/$30 exact cash or check.
