Earth Fest is Coming!!!
April 26, 2017
Dear Chesapeake Science Point Parents and Guardians,
Our annual Earth Fest is fast approaching on Friday, May 19th. This year’s celebration is
destined to be our biggest and best yet. We will have a variety of food trucks, carnival games with
great prizes, and many more exciting activities. Your student will be sure to have a blast! However, in
order to offset the costs of this event, some of these attractions will cost a small fee. The games will
cost $2.00 per play or $15-$20 unlimited play, while a meal from the food trucks will cost about $10-
$15 per child. The food options will include Jamaican cuisine, barbecue, and traditional festival food,
among other options. In addition to these activities, there will be various activities for your student to
participate and enjoy at no cost. To ensure your child is able to enjoy all that this year’s Earth Fest
has to offer, we suggest giving your child an appropriate amount of money for the day. Thank you for
your support and we hope your child will enjoy this year’s festivities.
If you have any questions or would like to donate to Earth Fest, please contact Mr. Hood at
khood@mycsp.org.
Thank you,
Chesapeake Science Point Student Government Association

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.

SENIORS QA Schedule

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. (NOTE: The computer class that 9th graders took this fall is not a dual credit class, so no transcript is needed.)

Withdrawals and Transfers
Please send me an email if your child will be transferring from CSP. I will need the name and phone number of the new school. Please let me know at least a week or so in advance as I will need time to prepare the transfer packet for you to take to the other school. If you have any questions, please email me at jcalvert@mycsp.org

What is bullying?
Bullying and cyberbullying, harassment and intimidation, hazing, and/or bias behaviors are unsafe behaviors that do not reflect respect for others as defined by the Code of Student Conduct. In determining whether a behavior Is bullying, the school considers if the behavior:

• Is intentional.
• Is repeated over time.
• Is intended to harm.
• Involves a power differential.
• Creates a hostile educational environment.

If your child is a target of bullying behaviors, you can report this using the Bullying, Harassment, or Intimidation Reporting Form that is available on the county website as an electronic report, on the school website or from the main office or the school counseling office. Students can also report directly to a staff member. When a situation that involves any of these behaviors is reported, staff members will respond quickly and will provide a practical, private, and safe place to report.

How to Tell If Your Child/Student Is Being Bullied...
• Change in school performance
• Absenteeism
• Truancy/drop out
• Peer rejection
• Fear of social situations
• Alienation and loneliness
• Poor self-esteem
• Chronic illness

What Can You Do?
• If the bullying is occurring at school, contact the teacher, school counselor, and/or administrator.
• Ask your child’s teacher questions about his or her interactions with other children.
• Look for help from the school counselor with social skills, assertiveness, or friendship skills training.

If it is determined by an administrator that bullying or cyberbullying, harassment, intimidation, hazing, and/or bias behaviors have occurred, the students involved in these behaviors will receive support from a school counselor, school psychologist, school social worker, pupil personnel worker, or school health staff person to be sure that everyone involved in the incident feels safe and supported and understands how to avoid these situations in the future. A Safety Plan for both the target of the behavior and the child(ren) engaging In bullying behaviors will be developed and shared with you.

COLLEGE CORNER
ASPIRE High School Mentoring Program

The ASPIRE program at APL is the opportunity for juniors and seniors in high school to get hands-on experience in STEM and to explore career opportunities before committing to an area of study in college. The ASPIRE program is a learning experience that exposes students to the real-world applications of what they are learning in school as well as to what it is like to work in a professional environment.
The ideal ASPIRE student is successful in their science and math classes—either AP courses or on-grade-level classes. The ideal student for the program is curious, committed, and ready to explore the many possibilities STEM provides. ASPIRE students need to be able to work independently, to persist when faced with challenges, and to communicate well with mentors and other staff as necessary.
If you are ready to explore STEM at APL and you meet the minimum requirements, please read the application instructions below and join us for a STEM adventure.
ASPIRE is a competitive program. Applying does not guarantee acceptance.
For more information, go to the website at http://www.jhuapl.edu/STEM/Students/ASPIRE
