Not Yet Born, Yet Will Remember 9/11
Mr. Ivy and Mr. Woodley, Two CMMS Military Veterans, with the
American Legion Karl Ross Post 16 Color Guard
The Christa McAuliffe Middle School Social Science Department realized that the 13th anniversary of 9/11 marked the beginning of a new era. The Class of 2016, our 7th graders were not yet born on September 11th 2001. Even some of our younger 8th graders were born days to months later. The department decided this year the 9/11 remembrance needed to be extra special. Mrs Snider, military veteran, secured a Flag Raising Ceremony by the American Legion Karl Ross Post 16 Color Guard to honor the victims of 9/11. The ceremony took place one day early due to the busy schedule of the Legionnaires. The entire school assembled at the flagpole at 9:00am. Everyone saluted as the first clip of the American flag touched the metal rope. The salute continued as the flag slowly went to the top and then was lowered to half staff. Then, the school said the "Pledge of Allegiance." Following the Color Guard played "Taps" at the end of the ceremony. which was very touching for the military veterans of Christa McAuliffe and civilian staff members alike. We were all honored to have the Legionnaires here. The color guard was impressed with the respect the Christa McAuliffe students gave to the ceremony. The flag remained at half staff the rest of the day, the only flag like it in Stockton on the eve of 9/11. On September 11 2014, the remembering continued as each person arrived to see the Christa McAuliffe Middle School flag already at half staff. As the day continued, each student participated in a special Social Science lesson that provided more details about the day and how our Nation was forever changed.

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.
