Celebrating Student Effort In The 500 Building

Our 500 Building students worked incredibly hard on their PSSA tests over the last two weeks! We are so proud of their efforts! To help the students stay positive and balanced, the 500 Building's administrators incorporated a variety of academic team building activities into their schedules this past week.

Students in Collegium's 5th and 6th Grades had the opportunity to participate in Growth Mindset Escape Room activities, a building-wide basketball tournament, and Cougar Games, during which they worked together on teams to solve different brain benders, logic puzzles, and team building tasks. The week culminated with a STEAM Chair Challenge Workshop and an assembly that celebrated the students’ hard work with prizes, games, teacher dares, a fabulous makeover for our Assistant Principal, Mrs. Rothermel, and a fancy new haircut for our Principal, Mr. Murphy!

We applaud our 5th and 6th Graders' dedication during PSSA testing, and look forward to seeing them finish the year strong!

CCS Sophomore To Attend Congress of Future Medical Leaders

Collegium sophomore, Rose Emily Garzon, has been selected by the National Academy of Future Physicians and Medical Scientists (NAFPMS) to represent Pennsylvania—and Collegium Charter School—as a delegate to NAFPMS’s three-day Congress of Future Medical Leaders this June in Massachusetts. The Congress is a prestigious program that identifies, encourages, and guides honors-level high school students interested in pursuing careers in medicine and medical science.

Rose’s nomination to the Congress was based on her academic achievement, leadership potential, and determination to serve humanity as a physician or scientist. The Congress will allow Rose and other delegates to:

  • Hear from Nobel Prize Laureates, top medical school deans, leaders in medical research, technology, and industry;
  • View a surgery;
  • Learn about new technology in medicine and science;
  • Associate with other students who are equally passionate about careers in medicine and helping others; and
  • Be mentored and guided by great leaders in related fields.

NAFPMS’s hope is that by identifying students early who show promise in science, math, and technology, it can help give them access to the resources, mentorship, and inspiration they will need to succeed in medical and medical science careers. At the end of the Congress, Rose will receive the National Academy of Future Physicians and Medical Scientists Award of Achievement.

Enjoy this experience, Rose! We look forward to watching you become a dedicated and talented physician or scientist!

It's Book Fair Time Again for Grades 5-8

This year’s 5th-8th Grade Book Fair is scheduled for Monday, May 7th through Tuesday, May 15th in the 500 Building Library. We need parent/guardian volunteers to help the Book Fair run!

Please consider signing up for as many one-hour time slots as you can using the SignUpGenius link below. Book Fair volunteers have a great time helping students as they attend the Book Fair with their classes, and can also check out Book Fair items for their own children.

Book Fair hours are 9:00am to 3:00pm each day. Volunteers must have current clearances on file in advance with Collegium. Go to the Volunteering page of Collegium’s website for links and information on required clearances.

Another way you can help is to donate plastic shopping bags. Please send them to school labeled 500 Building Library, Attn: Mrs. Wallace. We will put them to good use during our Book Fair events.

All families are invited to come out and enjoy the 5th-8th Grade Book Fair at our Book Fair Family Night on Wednesday, May 9th, from 5:00pm until 7:00pm. There will be treats and prize drawings, along with a wonderful selection of books your family can choose from together. Also, beginning Wednesday, May 2nd, you can get a sneak peek at the Book Fair selection by accessing the link below for our online Book Fair!

Mrs. Wallace welcomes your emails with Book Fair and Book Fair Family Night questions.

Career Milestones Achieved By CCS Student-Athletes

300 Career Goals

One year after reaching 200 career goals in Girls’ Lacrosse, CCS Senior Gillian Schlenner eclipsed that milestone with her 300th goal scored during April 17th’s game against Kimberton Waldorf School. The crowd literally went wild over CCS’s amazing midfielder and Lacrosse Team Co-Captain. You can watch Gillian making the goal in the video below.

Gilian's level of play—300 goals in a high school lacrosse career—is astounding! She cannot be stopped! We know Gillian will take her persistence, drive, and dedication to her studies next year at Northeastern University.

CCS Seniors Recognized As Top Chester County Basketball Players

Congratulations to Collegium Seniors Jordan (Max) Shiel (Boys) and Destyni Wood (Girls) who became the first Collegium athletes to be named to Daily Local News All-Area Basketball Teams. Both students were recognized by the newspaper as top players in Chester County during the 2017-18 basketball season.

This is an honor the Daily Local News grants to local high school basketball players at the end of each season based on their levels of play. Destyni and Max, we are so proud of your accomplishments!

New High School Student Mural

This Fall, Collegium's High School students, along with Art teachers Mrs. Steines and Mr. Springer, worked together to create a student art mural. "It became clear early in the planning that we wanted the mural to represent the entire High School, so we designed the project to be available to all of our student body, and not just to those who excel in art," said Mrs. Steines.

The mural, which is a mosaic, began with a grid of rectangles, onto which Collegium's cougar mascot and a landscape were painted. Then, each student was asked to personalize a rectangle in a way they wanted to be remembered. Their only restriction was the color assigned to each section of rectangles.

The resulting mural is a wonderful representation of Collegium's High School and the individuality that contributes to our cougar spirit. Measuring 90" wide by 40" high, the piece is displayed on the upper level of the High School's reconfigured wing.

Our Elementary STEM Club programs empower students to adopt a design-thinking mindset through compelling activities, projects, and problems that build upon each other and relate to the world around them.

As students engage in hands-on, technology-oriented activities in engineering, they become creative, collaborative problem-solvers ready to take on any challenge. Students will be using iPads to explore innovative projects during STEM Clubs. Due to limited availability, permission slips were due by Tuesday, April 17th.

Education Explained

Each week, CCS Administrators highlight common terms and philosophies in education, and explain how they impact teaching and learning at Collegium. This week's contribution comes from, Kristin Camburn, 150 Building Assistant Principal.

Responsive Class Meetings

Responsive Classroom Meetings are a wonderful tool that Collegium’s K-4 teachers use daily during their homerooms. The Responsive Classroom Meeting approach helps students begin their day on a firm foundation by:

  • Building a strong sense of classroom community;
  • Identifying and meeting student needs;
  • Helping students feel like they belong and are valued; and
  • Providing meaningful opportunities for students to practice social-emotional, communication, and academic skills.

Responsive Classroom Meetings are also used to reinforce school and academic expectations, like the ROAR program principles (Respect it, Own it, Accept It, Responsible For It) and Second Step program social-emotional skills.

There are four key parts that make Responsive Class Meetings work:

Greeting and Compliments

During this time, students greet one another in a variety of ways and send compliments to their classmates. The video below shows different morning greetings in action.


During sharing, students talk with classmates about their personal lives, discuss accomplishments, solve problems, and otherwise bond as a group. Sharing helps students build a stronger community inside and outside of their classrooms. Watch the following video to see how sharing works in a classroom meeting.

Group Activity

During this portion of a classroom meeting, teachers guide students as they work together to solve an activity. Teachers select particular activities that focus on problem-solving skills in areas where the class needs to work on unity and cohesion. Students throughly enjoy these team-building activities and working together to solve challenges. The video below features a great example of this aspect of Responsive Classroom Meetings.

Classroom News and Goal Setting

In the final stage of Responsive Classroom Meetings, the teacher reviews the day’s and week’s classroom news and announcements, and works with students to set both classroom and individual behavior and academic goals. This exercise helps students understand the day’s structure and the steps they need to take to move successfully through it.

At the end of each classroom meeting, teachers help students transition to the academic school day with a variety of mindfulness techniques. Mindfulness practice teaches students to calm themselves and their emotions, move their thoughts inward, focus on their breathing, and become still in the moment. When the mindfulness practice is finished, students are refreshed, present, and ready to learn!

For more information on the productive and healthy practice of Responsive Classroom Meetings, take a look at the materials below.
