News from Principal Lambert
Our campus will be closed for the Spring Holiday and again during the summer, for construction purposes. No student activities will be allowed on campus while the campus is undergoing construction. All sports, clubs and programs will need to make arrangements to relocate to other sites. Thank you for your continued support.
Volunteers Needed to Judge Senior Projects
It’s that time of year when CKM seniors give oral presentations of their senior projects, a culmination of a yearlong project of their choosing meant to challenge them and stretch their potential. We are looking for volunteers who can volunteer an hour of time or a whole day to help judge senior projects during the week Monday, April 28 – Thursday, May 1. The judges can be parents, friends, family or community members. Volunteers will be given a brief training and paired with a CKM staff member. If you would be willing to volunteer, please contact Mary David by email mary-david@scusd.edu or phone at 264-4400 x1413 and let her know what day and time you would like to help.

News from CKM’s Music Department
The CKM Concert Band earned a unanimous Superior rating at a recent music festival at Woodcreek High School. A unanimous Superior rating is the highest ranking a band can achieve – all three of the festival’s judges felt the band performed at the highest level possible for an ensemble of that age group. On March 15th the jazz band reached out to the community, performing a concert for the young patients of the Shriners Children’s Hospital of Northern California. [read more]

Learn how to register for Infinite Campus in April

Parents and students who currently use Zangle to check attendance and track grades can participate in a pilot of the new Infinite Campus student information system this spring. Infinite Campus is a state-of-the-art student information system used by more than 2,000 school districts in 43 states. It will replace Zangle this spring, greatly improving SCUSD’s data collection, storage and management services.

SCUSD will go “live” with Infinite Campus on April 21. Zangle will be available for use until 5 p.m. on April 11. SCUSD will use Spring Break (April 12-18) to make the transition from Zangle to Infinite Campus and during that week neither system will be available. [flyer] [additional information]

ROAR Program Seeking Donations
Many of you may remember the ROAR (Respect, On task, Active, Responsible) program, launched the beginning of the school year, which rewards CKM students for positive behavior. Students who exhibit ROAR qualities are given a ROAR card by adults on campus. Every Friday a drawing for the ROAR reward is held. The program has been very successful and the school is seeking donations for prizes for the winning students, so that the program can continue through the end of the year and into the following year. Samples of previous donations include:
  • Gift certificates to Taylor’s Market
  • Gift certificates to Marie’s Donuts
  • Gift certificates to Freeport Bakery
  • Gift Certificates to McDonald's
  • Apple gift cards
Please contact Jennifer Dixon at (916) 264-4714 if this is something you would be able to help us with. Any and all donations would be gratefully appreciated!

CKM PTSA Meeting
March 24 at 7:00 pm - Library

You’ve seen it. We’ve all seen it. You’re driving and see the teen driver in the car next to you with head slumped downward with eyes riveted to a handheld device – smartphone. Perhaps the thumbs are rapidly tapping out a message on that smartphone. Smart? “Really, my child knows better,” so you say… until that tragic moment you receive the call that a tragic accident involving your teen has occurred, and worse yet, your child has died. It’s called “distracted driving.” It’s an epidemic. It’s the #1 killer of teens in America.

The best way to fight distracted driving is to become educated. Please come to a community forum for parents and teens on “What Do You Consider Lethal?”, a parent/teen safe driving workshop presented by Impact Teen Drivers, CHP and C.K. McClatchy PTSA on Monday, March 24, 2014, 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., in the Library/Media Center. [Workshop flyer] [CHP flyer]

Refreshments will be served.

Senior Grad Night Trip Planning

As of 3/19/14, there are still a limited number of seats on the Disneyland Grad Night trip! If the number of applicants exceeds the available number of seats, students will be placed on a wait list. Please read the letter and submit a grad night application, waiver and payment to the lockbox in the CKM front office.

All deposits must be received no later than April 11! Because Disneyland requires the pre-purchase of Grad Night tickets, any student who has not paid in full on or before April 11 may lose his/her seat on the trip. Please contact the Grad Night Chair, Colleen Ridolfi, at quiltercolleen@comcast.net as soon as possible if you are unable to meet this deadline.

The next Grad Night Committee planning meeting will be on April 23 from 6:30pm to 7:30pm in the Media Center. Interested parents and students are welcome. If you have any questions, please email the Grad Night Chair.

NOTE: Grad Night is voluntary and independent of CKM and SCUSD.
