Letter from Principal Lambert
NEW 2015-2016 Fall School Year Start Date

Dear CKM Families:

Mark your calendars: Next fall, school will start on Thursday, September 3 – before the Labor Day holiday.

This is a significant change for our school district, which has started after Labor Day for as long as anyone can remember. The earlier start date will give teachers and students a jump-start on learning and allow all of us a little more time to adjust to a new school year. It also returns SCUSD to a full 180 school day calendar. SCUSD expects to continue working in years on earlier start dates more in align with our neighboring districts.

We know that change is never easy and we thank you for your patience and understanding as we work to improve our service to students and families.

Sincerely,

Principal Peter L. Lambert

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!

PTSA TOPICS OF INTEREST
Message to Our Parents

The outgoing PTSA board would like to thank our many parent volunteers and donors throughout the year. Because of you, we were able to host three teacher/staff appreciation events and five PTSA meetings with guest speakers on topics ranging from distracted teen driving to the ins-and-outs of course selection at CKM. We held a forum to discuss qualities we’d like to see in the new candidate for school superintendent. And, we were able to continue to help out in the Counseling Office, maintain the school’s website, send almost 200 seniors to Disneyland Grad Night, and contribute over $4,000 to teacher grants. Thank you so much for your support! We hope you continue to stay engaged with the PTSA in the upcoming school year. Check the CKM website in September for meeting dates and ways you can contribute. Have a fun and relaxing summer!

Keep Reading, Keep Active!

Students: Don’t let your finely-tuned brain atrophy over the summer! Check out the teen programs at your local library, stay up on your reading, search for free stuff to do in Sacramento, stay cool at a city pool, and check out the many ways you can make an impact in your community by volunteering for the City of Sacramento and other Sacramento locations. Have a safe and fun summer!
