EARLY DISMISSAL FOR STUDENTS (12:30 Dismissal)
On Wednesday, October 25th, 2017 students will be taking the PSAT (9, 10, and 11) or the SAT (12). The Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT) is a standardized test administered by the College Board and cosponsored by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC) in the United States. Approximately 3.5 million students take the PSAT/NMSQT each year. This information will be used to help guide students through CCP decisions, college entrance, and needed study and academic skills.

Oct 26- Parent Teacher Conferences 12:30- 7:00pm

Teacher-parent conferences give you an opportunity to increase communication between school and home, keep parents informed about their child's progress, and develop a plan for the student's future. MC2 STEM High School, as well as all other schools in CMSD, will be holding parent teacher conferences on Thursday, October 26th, 2017 from 12:30- 7:00pm. Please plan on attending!
Tips for Parents: Preparing for Parent Teacher Conferences
How Should Parents Navigate This All-Important Meeting? Educators Show the Way!
We know parents are busy, but it is important to carve out time to invest in your child’s education and ensure success at school,” said National Education Association President Dennis Van Roekel. “To get the most out of parent-teacher conferences, parents need to take an active role in their child’s education year-round and come prepared to discuss how their child can reach their full potential.”
Here are the rest of our tips for parents:
Get Ready. Do your homework prior to parent-teacher conferences. Prepare by writing notes to yourself concerning:
Any questions about the school’s programs or policies.
Things you can share with the teacher about your child and his life at home.
Questions about your child’s progress.
Ask Important Questions
Don’t be afraid to engage in a frank conversation with your child’s teacher. Your goal is to develop an action plan for your child’s success at school. Good questions to ask the teacher include:
What are my child’s strengths and weaknesses.
How does my child get along with classmates?
Is my child working up to her ability? Where could she use improvement?
What can we do at home to support what you are doing in the classroom?
Initiate the Action Plan
Start immediately on the action plan you and the teacher put together. Discuss the plan with your child and track his progress. Stay in touch with your child’s teacher throughout the year with regularly scheduled “report card” conferences that can keep the communication lines open.
