PTSO SaveAround Fundraiser Coming Next Month
Next month, November 2017, the PTSO will be sending home, with your students, SaveAround Coupon Books, order forms and online ordering information.

We will be selling these valuable coupon books for $25 right in time for the holidays especially as they make great holiday gifts. They are the gift that keeps on giving because they are filled with hundreds of national, regional and local coupons.

In addition all of 2018 coupon books come with FREE access to mobile savings and deals across the USA! There is a downloadable mobile application with access to thousands of dollars in savings at home and on the go!

Books are available for many other cities and states as well, see the available editions at: www.supportourgroups.com/GN/220092.

Our school will earn 50% or more profit for every book we sell! Families earn 1 FREE book for every 5 books they sell!

Our GOAL is for each student to sell 2 BOOKS. That is just one for your family and one for a neighbor, friend, coworker, family member, or gift idea…. Each book is $25 and more than pays for itself just by using a few of the coupons!

For more information on the program visit: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=76&v=JPHw0fL_LL0

Look out for more information in a few weeks.

If you have question or would like to help with the planning and logistics, please contact mycspptsoboard@googlegroups.com

Movie Night
The PTSO is excited to announce that in January we plan to host a Family Movie night for all CSP students, their parents/siblings, and staff. There is one catch – to hold this great event we need several parent volunteers (meaning- we need you!) who can assist at the event and we need to know now, so there is ample time to complete and submit the background check info to Anne Arundel County. If you can help us pull off what promises to be a fun event, please email us at mycspptsoboard@googlegroups.com and complete the CHAPERONE/VOLUNTEER BACKGROUND INVESTIGATION ONLINE.
You can access this form on the AACPS website under the tab labeled Families.

Sincerely,
Your CSP-PTSO

Important news
Hello,
Just a friendly reminder that whenever you change information such as residency, email, phone numbers, etc. please send me an email so I can make the changes and/or collect the necessary documents.

Students attaining the age of 11 are eligible to receive the MCV4 and tdap immunizations and must have them to enter the 7th grade. To avoid the rush over the summer with vacations and trying to get doctor appointments, I'm trying to get these as soon as possible. You can drop the updated records off at the school or scan and email them to me. jcalvert@mycsp.org

Absent notes with the dates and reason for the absence are due within 3 days of the student's return to school.



My email is jcalvert@mycsp.org

Repeat-Free School

CSP continues to provide a rigorous and quality education to all students. It has always been our goal to improve upon past practices, find new ways to engage students and make learning something students enjoy. We also believe that high school students need to put forth that same effort in order to be become successful adults; therefore, CSP is Repeat Free. If a student receives an E in a required high school course, the class will have to be repeated in an alternate program such as summer school, evening school and twilight school. These programs are available for students to make up credits in courses that they were not successful in the first time; classes at CSP are for students taking them for original credit. If a student does not make up the failed class in one of these alternative programs, there is a chance that we will not be able to schedule the student for the classes required for graduation.

AACC Dual Credit

Any student who wishes to receive high school credit for any dual credit AACC class they have taken must present an official transcript from AACC to Dr Gonzalez. The Registrar’s Office at AACC can assist you with that.
