Principal update - Ms. Prado

Student who have passed the PERT test will be eligible for dual enrollment at Miami Dade College in Middle School.
FSA and EOC testing season went well. There was a one day freeze but, instruction went on as normal.
Grades are an issue.
CCMS has a large failure rate. This will be worked on next school year.
The goal is to open the school at 7:30 a.m.. Funds and Personnel are needed to open the Media Center so that students are able to do computer based programs that are needed to pass various classes.

Summer school will be held at Norland Middle School. It will be for 7th and 8th grade students only. The S3C program and Florida Virtual School are alternatives to summer school but maybe challenging to complete for repeaters. Face to face classes during summer school are the best option.
Students failing will not be promoted to the 9th grade.
46 eighth graders are eligible for summer school. They will be picked up at Country Club Middle School and taken to Norland Middle and dropped back off at Country Club at the end of the day.

Grades and homework
The homework policy - All schools can create a policy to meet their own school’s needs.
The homework plan is being developed for Country Club Middle School.
The policy may differentiate by FSA level, grade level, ESOL, ESE, or Gifted.
Grade distribution should be the same in a content area no matter the teacher.
Student services is working on a plan to help students be successful in school.

Parent support has increased through initiatives like Dads and Donuts. Parental involvement initiatives will take place once a month next school year.

The PTSA has been formed and is currently operating at Country Club Middle.
Last Friday, the PTSA held a dress down day. Parents collect the money. Students dressed great and appropriate for school. Prado is willing to do more Dress down days. This helps students to have balance and great Mental Health.

4th quarter honor roll students will be honored next year when we celebrate the first quarter honor roll students for the 2017-2018 school year. Unfortunately, current 8th graders will not be able to participate.

Student leader meetings have been held all year once a month. It's a very diverse group . It's growing every month. The next meeting will be held very soon before the closing of school.

6th grade orientation will be held June 12th.

Algebra 1 boot camp will be held this summer. They will be held for four days in the beginning of the summer and four days at the end of the summer before the school year starts.

High school credits classes that will be offered will be Biology, Algebra 1, Geometry and Physical Science.

Gina Garo mentioned there are more students who are going through things who are not talking to Mr. Fabal or any adults because they want to keep it from their parents.
Prado indicated that the Success Coach can only tell the principal or parent when the student is threatening to harm themselves or someone else.

CCMS still hasn't received the tree from Miami Dade College. We’ve received one from the region on Earth Day. Luisa Estrada started Orchard club by the garden.

The 2016-2017 Continuous Improvement reflection -
Fully implemented strategies - Academic Programs/Support, School Culture, School Leadership

Staff PDs will be held in the first two days before school starts to address ESE, ESOL and Technology needs within the classroom.

Bathroom concerns
