The 8th grade M-STEP will be held again, Tuesday, April 23 and Thursday, April 25 during first block. All CP3 students should report to room 165 no later than 8:45, where Miss Hillman and Mrs. Nachazel will administer the testing. Students will be testing in the areas of Science and Social Studies only, as this year the ELA and Math portions of state testing were accomplished through the PSAT 8/9. Testing will begin at 9:00 and conclude around 10:20. Please encourage your student to get plenty of rest prior to testing, and eat a healthy breakfast.
Testing will be administered on chromebooks, so please ensure devices are charged prior to coming to school Tuesday and Thursday. Also, please have students bring their own earbuds or headphones. We do have extras if necessary.
Unlike the PSAT 8/9, M-STEP testing is not timed. Students who do not finish in the time allotted, and students who are absent on scheduled testing days, will be able to finish on one of the designated make-up days. However, please refrain from scheduling out of school appointments during testing if at all possible.
M-STEP testing for grades 6 & 7 will begin the week of April 29th. Information regarding testing days and times will be shared at a later date.

Thank you for supporting JPEC’s yearbook program!
Warmer Weather = Lunch Outside!
As the weather warms up, we will have lunch outside whenever possible. The general rule is that if it is above 50 degrees and not raining, we will be outside in the courtyard area by the fieldhouse. Please bring a jacket or a sweatshirt to be prepared.
Dress Code Reminder
As a reminder, sweatshirts, hoodies, jackets and shirts worn over uniforms that do not meet dress code specifications are not allowed. Coats can be left in FG classrooms during the day. Any faculty member of JPEC can address a student regarding dress code and all students are expected to respond appropriately. Ideally, students violating dress code should be addressed by their teacher during first block of the day, but are subject to correction at any time. Moving forward, if students are asked to remove a hoodie or sweatshirt (for example), but are found wearing it again later during the day will have to remove the item and it will be held until the end of the day. To avoid any issues, please help ensure your student is in dress code prior to coming to school daily.
Cell Phones In Class
Just a reminder to all CP students and families: the use of cell phones is not permitted in class. You may check your phones in between classes or at lunch, but they must remain off or on silent and out of sight while in the classroom unless specifically stated otherwise by your teachers.
Parents: Please be sure to call the front office as soon as possible in the morning if your child is ill and is going to be absent. It is important for us to be able to keep accurate attendance records, and this will help! The office phone # is 768-7093. If your student is absent due to a medical or dental appointment, please bring a doctor's note so we can excuse the absence. Thank you!
