Free Pirate Training Club!

Is your son or daughter an athlete who is not playing a fall sport? Maybe they need to put some meat on those bones! Or, if they are like us, they may need to tone up and take a little meat off! In either case, this club is for them. We would like any athlete who is not currently playing a fall sport to join our training club in preparation for future sports, as well as just to get in and stay in Pirate Shape.

Don't let your kid be a soft couch potato this fall!
We will meet on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays after school the first semester from 2:45-3:45, beginning Sept. 2nd. We will participate in many activities to get in and stay in shape for all Pirate sports. We will learn proper weightlifting skills, running, yoga and stretching techniques, and even play games and try out various sports to stay in shape this first semester!

Important:
Your athlete will need to have a current physical on record with the CLP office before they can participate in this club or any sport at CLP. Get their physical now!!! It is good for the whole year, so they will be ready for any sport in which they choose to participate.
A signed permission form must also be turned into Mr. Hall or Mr. Loughlin prior to the first day of training. Let's get them in the gym!!

Student Planner & Handbook Free!

Because we believe that organization is a primary key to success, beginning this year, a Student Handbook will be provided for every student. The CLPMS Student Handbook contains the school calendar, bell schedule, behavior expectations, an organizational planner, and is used as the student’s hall pass. Donations to the school for the first planner are appreciated if possible, and if a student loses his/her handbook, it will cost $5 to buy a replacement.

What is the Middle Years IB Program (MYP)?

Cache La Poudre Middle School began its consideration of the International Baccalaureate’s Middle Years Program (MYP) in May of 2010. The faculty began training in June of 2010 and implementing MYP strategies throughout the 2010–2011 school year.

Student Attire (Dress Code)

We expect students to wear clothing that promotes a positive, safe, productive, and learning-focused school environment. With this in mind, please adhere to the following requirements when choosing how to dress each day

More Information.


Attendance

It is extremely vital that your student be at school. Colorado school law requires that students attend and that it is the parents’ responsibility to have their student attend school until the age of 17. Colorado law states that secondary students must attend school for 1056 hours out of 1080 hours. This equals four days of absences. You will be notified if your student has more than four days of absences. Students must have all absences excused through the attendance office. You may call our 24-hour attendance line at 490-3087 or our attendance clerk at 488-7405. If the parent does not notify the school of their students’ absence, then the school will contact the parent to verify the students’ absence.

Here are the new guidelines we are asking students and parents to follow when they request a pre-arranged absence. When requesting a pre-arranged absence for your student, please be aware that your student is missing invaluable in-class learning and activities.

Absences due to vacations are considered “Unexcused” by District Policy.

Please notify the Attendance Office and all your child’s teachers.

While it is important to obtain work prior to the absence, teachers adjust their lessons daily to meet the needs of their students. Therefore, it is essential to continue checking Blackboard and Synergy while absent and to have your student talk to all teachers upon his/her return.

More Information
