End of Year Testing
We will begin our end of year testing on Tuesday, April 30 and go through Friday, May 10. 9th graders will be taking the ACT Aspire test which is an ACT prep/practice test. This is a timed test, so students will need to finish the test once they have started. 7th and 8th graders will take the RISE assessment--similar to the SAGE tests from previous years. 8th grade students will not have to take the Writing portion. Please plan accordingly so that your student can be here. This is great feedback and practice for our students. Contact us if you have any questions regarding the end of year assessments.
Future 7th graders ... be an SBO!
Hi Wonderful Parents at CMMS!
Congratulations to Ms. Julie Frix! She was awarded the Jordan Education Foundation Teacher of the Year Award at Copper Mountain yesterday. Members of the foundation board, district administration, and the South Jordan Mayor dropped in yesterday to present the award. Way to go Ms. Frix!
Have you ever wondered what effects social media and technology is having on the generation now being referred to as iGen –our students?! The counselors at Copper Mountain will be hosting a Parent Workshop where they will discuss how technology today influences these iGens in positive and negative ways. Practical applications will be given and there will be a chance to win some great resources. Come join us April 3rd and 6:00 pm in the Copper Mountain Media Center.
SCC for the New South Jordan Middle School The first New South Jordan Middle School School Community Council Meeting will be Thursday, March 21 at 6:00 pm in the CMMS Conference Room.
There will be no makeup day for students for the snow day last week.
Last night, the Board of Education unanimously supported a plan to convert the instructional day to a professional development day for teachers. The decision will be ratified at the Board meeting on Feb. 26.
While there will be no makeup day, we want to make students and parents aware of Utah’s collection of free student online-resources provided through the Utah Education and Telehealth Network (UETN). These online resources can enhance student learning at home in a wide variety of subjects.
Utah’s Online Library provides Utah students access to research sources such as newspaper articles, magazines, professional journals, and eBooks. UETN also supports various web projects, interactive activities, and digital resources aligned to core curriculum.
To access UETN online library, go to onlinelibrary.uen.org and use the login “online” and the password “learning.”
Beginning February 4, 2019, and continuing through March 15, 2019, our school will be administering school climate surveys. All of our parents/guardians and students are invited to participate. The survey helps CMMS to gather information about our school climate and the effectiveness of the teachers and administrators at our school. Responses are anonymous and no personal information will be collected. The survey is short, taking less than 10 minutes to complete.
If you are unable to take the survey at home, CMMS will have computers available during our Parent Teacher Conferences next week for you to use. The survey will be available in both English and Spanish.
Thank you for your help and feedback! Click the link below to take the survey:
