The Christa McAuliffe Middle School Archive

Christa McAuliffe Middle School has a rich history. We love sharing our news and accomplishments with the world. We regret that we cannot keep everything on on Home Page. So that we never forget anyone with whom we have shared our journey nor a stop along our path, we offer this page. It's where we can all come to remember what continues to make Christa McAuliffe Middle School the place to be.

Reach for the Stars.jpg

Five years ago today, our school began celebrating "Christa McAuliffe Day." The idea came from a desire to do something special on the 25th anniversary of the Challenger Disaster, January 28 1986. For many Staff at Christa, it was hard to fathom focusing all day on the profound loss the United States experienced that day. So like our namesake, we reached for it and pushed ourselves as far as we could. The answer was to create this day to honor Christa McAuliffe.

 

Over the years, our students have created amazing projects honoring Christa McAuliffe and the space program started during President John F. Kennedy's Administration. The video below is one such project. It was created by Anthony Nguyen, CMMS Class of 2011. Anthony graduated at the top of this class from Bear Creek High School in 2015. As you watch his video, think about how you will continue Christa McAuliffe's legacy;  reach for the stars!

Donation leads to 'Selma' viewing
Posted Feb. 27, 2015 at 5:30 PM 
 
Kathi Yeager writes: “The High Honor students at Christa McAuliffe Middle School in Stockton would like to thank the anonymous donor who purchased tickets at the Stockton City Centre 16 cinema downtown for students to see the movie ‘Selma.’ The movie tells the story of how Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. led the battle for equal voting rights in Selma, Alabama. We found out later that this donor purchased 1,200 tickets so seventh-, eighth- and ninth-grade students would be able to experience this time in history. We were able to get the last 115 tickets available. Two buses pulled out of Christa on Feb. 4 during school hours and headed downtown with our eighth-grade students who had a 3.55 GPA or over. ‘Selma’ was wonderful, our High Honor students are amazing and most of all, a big thank you to whoever you are out there, that made this happen for so many students in our community.”

What do you think we STILL need to add?

Share your idea by Friday, March 4th.


 

At the February 17th Staff meeting, Mr. Kirby showed teachers the above blueprint. Teachers discussed the possible changes and added new things to the above picture. They are also emailing Mr. Kirby with other ideas. 

 

What else do we need to add to the plan? If you have ideas, please contact Mr. Kirby. Lodi Unified School District has been working on a District-wide Facilities Master Plan since April of 2015.  A Facilities Master Plan focuses on a long-range, strategic plan to align the District’s educational and operational goals with the physical facilities at each school site.  The master plan process does not specifically design the buildings at each site, but provides a plan to achieve parity among school sites throughout the District to improve the educational environment for every student. Your input is valuable because you might be the one person who shares a critical idea that is essential to our upgrade. So, please speak up by Friday, March 4th.

We look forward to meeting our 6th grade families and sharing an overview of our school program.

April 25th sign-ups are now closed.

The April 23rd event is more for the parent/guardians. The April 23rd Orientation explains middle school and registration to parent/guardians in a fashion to the presentation made to 6th grade students at their elementary school. We believe it's important for 6th graders to attend this meeting with their parent/guardian so that they can see their parent/guardian faces and reactions as they hear what’s in store for their student in middle school. Does the student have to attend with the parent/guardian? No. Yet, the April 23rd presentation will be done by Christa McAuliffe teachers. What the teachers say might be told a little bit differently than what the student heard at his/her school. Therefore, student attendance is a great idea.

April 25th: This event is for the STUDENT and his/her family to take middle school for a test drive. The parent is there to see the student's face and reactions to the exciting activities students will be doing in 7th grade. It’s one thing to hear about something; it’s another thing to actually participate. On April 25th, students and their parent will build a simple computer game, make a video, do a Science experiment, check out our school garden, and do a lunchtime activity with our Leadership students. Lunch? Yes, students and their families will receive a FREE pizza lunch. Does the parent have to come? YES! Consider the parent to be the student's permission slip to have fun and win prizes on April 25th. Unlike the April 23rd event, students and their parents must sign-up to do the Saturday event. That way Christa McAuliffe knows how much pizza to order. Makes sense. Sign-ups are now closed. No worries. In late April 2016, there will be another family day that you can attend.
