It's Time To Sign-Up to Travel
An education at Christa McAuliffe Middle School is not limited to our campus. Each year students are offered study trips to exciting locations. The length of excursions range from one day class field trips to excursions of a few days to two weeks.
Ms. Kathi Yeager is offering students a trip to Washington D.C. and New York City during the March Break in 2015. From our nation's capitol to the big Apple, students will see many sites studied in 8th Grade U.S. History. For more details about this history journey, please meet with Ms.Yeager at 5:00pm on Tuesday, August 12th, in Room 103. If you cannot attend, please email Ms. Yeager for more details, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Mr. Michael Babayco is keeping the tradition alive as he takes one more group of explorers the Space Academy in Huntsville, Alabama. 7th grade students who love the Space Center elective will want to think about going on this journey during the March Break in 2015. Even though Mr. Babayco's group has already had its first meeting, he's looking for more students. Please contact him via email to find out about the next meeting, email@example.com.
The Christa McAuliffe DSN Club is setting their sites for Australia for Summer 2016. This new offering will include 20 days in the land down under. Highlights include working marine biologists in the Great Barrier Reef, swimming with dolphins, and spear throwing with aborigines. This group of travelers will take a preliminary trip to a California location in June 2015 as they continue to prepare for the big trip. Club advisers, Mrs. Martha Snider and Mr. Aaron Barnett, will be hosting an informational meeting at the end of August. For more details, please contact Mrs. Snider via email, firstname.lastname@example.org.

At Christa McAuliffe Middle School, we are safety first. We are also a school that believes in using technology as a tool for learning. This year is our fourth year of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD). Our past success was largely due to the safe technology learning environment. Please help us continue our BYOD success by reading, "10 Rules for Safe Family Cell Phone Use."
2014-2015 Box Tops For Education Campaign
The Leadership Class under the direction of Ms. Yeager did a great job getting our school started collecting "Box Tops for Education." In the 4th quarter campaign, students and staff collected 3,446 valid box tops. This means we earned $344.60. How much do you think we can earn this year. Look for the official launch in September.
6th and 7th Grade Families Blast Off!
Within the past month, 6th and 7th grade families have taken flight into the 2014-2015 school year. Ms. Michelle Mazza and Mr. Don Howard visited our feeder schools, making presentations and passing out registration forms. On April 26th, the PTSA sponsored an family day in conjunction with Discovery Education's international Spring Virtual Conference. Northern California educators joined 6th and 7th grade families in a game of exploration, learning about how fun the rigors of Common Core can be at Christa McAuliffe Middle School. To cap off the month, 6th grade families got a grand tour of the school at 7th Grade Orientation Night on May 1st.
The Christa McAuliffe PTSA would like to thank the entire Christa McAuliffe family for making the “Let’s Play Common Core” event on November 14th a huge success.
