CMES April 2018
Principal's Corner by Jennifer Updike
Clinton-Massie Elementary has created a committee to implement Standards Based Report Cards at grades first through third. The committee including teachers, administration, and our curriculum director have worked hard over the past several months to create a consistent grading approach across the grade levels. Our preschool and kindergarten program currently use a standards based report card. Below is a great article that explains what a standards based report card is along with the advantages. We are excited to bring this to CMES for grades prek-third for the 2018-2019 school year.

Invention Convention 2018
Elementary students will be sharing their innovative creations as part of our 2nd annual Invention Convention on April 20th. These students chose to go through a rigorous inventing process and this is the culmination of their hard work. Judging will take place in the afternoon and parents will be invited to see their child's invention display @ 3pm.
