Students who are late to the test will not take the test and will not be given a refund. Students should plan on arriving at school no later than 7:15 on test day. This policy will be strictly followed. Students can leave school after the test, as long as they sign out.

Career Day is next Friday, April 29th. We would like students to wear business casual/professional attire instead of jeans, t-shirts, etc. Please make sure your student dresses as if they are going to "interview" with the guests who are visiting CSP. If you do not have business casual/professional attire, students are welcome to wear their CSP Oxford Shirt and khakis.

On April 23rd CSP’s high school teams will compete against other schools to show our tiger prowess in science, engineering, and technology at the State Science Olympiad. This competition gives the students a chance to visit the Johns Hopkins campus. The students have to work in teams of two; working together to complete various required skills. Some events require the students to build devices like bottle rockets and bridges. Other events test their understanding the scientific method while test their knowledge of various topics.
Wish the team good luck in the competition

ACADEMIC ANNOUNCEMENTS
PSAT Scores
Students should receive results from the PSAT 8/9 and the PSAT 10 this week. To find the scores, students will need to log into their College Board accounts. If your child does not have a College Board account, he/she can visit collegeboard.org to get started.

Once on the site, students can view both a detailed digital copy of their PSAT scores and a way to link the PSAT results to Khan Academy—a free, interactive test prep program offered by the College Board. This is the first year where such great review materials are available for students, so please take advantage!

To learn more about the score report and what it means, you can find a sample and more information on the College Board's website.

Sample PSAT 10 Report:

Sample PSAT 8/9 Report:

https://collegereadiness.collegeboard.org/pdf/sample-psat-8-9-score-report.pdf

Remember, the PSAT is purely a practice test, and the results are only shared with you and school staff, never with colleges. Please take the time to review your scores carefully, and to read the information provided by the College Board.

Attention all 6th Grade Parents...
Please read the following message from CSP's nurse, Ms. Stocker.

For the 2016-17 school year all current 6th graders entering 7th grade are required to have one Tdap vaccination and one meningococcal vaccination.
Students must be vaccinated in order to be allowed in school. Students who are not compliant will be excluded from school on the first day of classes unless parents/guardians provide proof of a medical appointment with a health care provider or local health department for vaccinations within the ensuing 20 calendar days (30 for military families). If you are unable to get a vaccination appointment with your child's health care provider, please call Anne Arundel County Department of Health's Immunizations Services at 410-222-4896. Please provide this information directly to the school nurse.

Thank you. Mrs. Stocker, School Nurse

CultureFEST
The 4th Annual CLF CultureFEST was a huge success. Over 400 students, parents, faculty and friends attended the traditional event on Saturday, April 16, 2016.
CLF schools came together to celebrate the students’ diverse cultural backgrounds and to form one unified community.
CSP performances included a traditional instrumental (Veena) and several songs in different languages.
An impressive, energetic a ‘Capella` performance by TBD, the professional barbershop subsidiary of The Alexandria Harmonizers, brought the house down with a mixture of classic rock and modern pop in a finale that left everyone in the audience tapping the feet and trying out their own harmonizing abilities.
Thanks go out to all of the students, parents, and staff members who contributed to such a delightful event!
We hope to see you next year for the 5th Annual CLF CultureFEST!
