Please join us for information on volunteer opportunities, elections, goals and fundraiser discussions this Monday, September 18th.
Recently, I spoke with Curriculum Director/Master Teacher Mavgar Mondesir-Gordon who has served Challenge Charter Schools for a number of years. Beyond her current role, she is teaching the 8th Grade Honors ELA class. We talked about her work, role, and vision for this academic year.
The excitement of parents, scholars, teachers and staff was palpable last night at Challenge Charter Middle School’s Orientation Night in preparation for the 2017-18 Academic Year. After Founder and CEO, Dr. Les Mullings and 6-8 Principal, Sonja Webber-Bey addressed the full gymnasium of parents and students, break out sessions were offered. While parents went over the handbook, curriculum, and policies in the gym, scholars met in the cafeteria to learn about parent communication, clubs, and participated in a Q&A session with representative students on the CCMS Scholar Panel.
All attendees were then invited to visit various Interest Stations with chances to meet Principal Webber-Bey, to learn about College and Career Readiness, to hear about how Technology and Blended Learning is used at CCMS, and to hear about School Culture. Parents also learned about and were encouraged to join the Parent Association and to meet the new Middle School Family Engagement Director, Janisa Vaughn.
The evening ended with a time of refreshments with pizza and beverages in the cafeteria. As the welcoming slide-show stated, the event was meant to focus CCMS families on one thing, “It’s going to be a phenomenal school year!”
If you were unable to attend the Orientation for any reason, please feel free to contact the main office for information that was given out and presented, or visit the Scholar and Parent Resource section on our website for items such as the current handbook, information on uniforms and dress code, policies, supply lists, and more.
Parents and guardians, we invite you to our Orientation night for the upcoming 2017-18 Academic year. Please plan now to be at this important and informative event. You don't want to miss it! Join us on Thursday, August 17th at 5:30P in the gym. We hope to see you there in support of your scholars and Challenge Charter Middle School. Go Cheetahs!
