CECA Board Appoints Mr. Joe Mead Director
The CECA Board took action to appoint Mr. Joe Mead as the new director. Joe is a long time employee of the district having taught middle school English as well as holding a number of different administrative positions at elementary, middle, and high school levels in the district. Most recently Joe has been working as assistant principal at Park View Middle School. 

Mr. Mead brings a lot of experience to the office, and I could not be more thrilled with the appointment.  I think each of you will be happy as well that Joe will lead the school going forward. 

Congratulations Mr. Mead, welcome to CECA!

An Important Message About CECA Leadership

Dear CECA Parents and Students,

     I hope you have all enjoyed your summer!  It is with mixed emotions I share with you my appointment by the Board of Education to a new position in the district, Director of Special Projects.  In this position I will continue supporting CECA and the IB as well as other great programs throughout the district and community. 

      The school is ready for the fall term and I will have the opportunity to work with the new director to insure a smooth transition to new leadership.   

       I want to thank each of you for the experience you have been part of in opening and now running this great school in its first five years.  It is hard to believe this is CECA’s fifth year.  The future looks bright for the Grizzlies!

Summer Office Hours
Starting on July 28, 2015, our office is open to serve your needs from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM.  If you need special arrangements for a different time, please call the office during these hours at 909-790-3207 and we will do our best to assist you!
Seats Available in 7th and 8th Grades!
We have adjusted our middle school numbers and we were able to admit all of the seventh grade students from the lottery.  If you are interested in enrolling in 7th grade we now have 4 available seats!

We have also added all of the students from the 8th grade lottery and we now have 2 available seats in our 8th grade class.  Interested parties should contact the office at (909) 790-3207 x4584 for more information.
ManageBac Parent Portal
Please remember that in order to view your child's academic report you need to first sign up, just once, by following these steps:
*  Email Ms. Lopez at valesca_lopez@ycjusd.us and request to be part of ManageBac
*  In the email send the name of your student and your name
*  ManageBac will email you.  Simply follow the prompts for ManageBac.
*  Once you have gone through this process you are signed up for life, you do not have to send another email.
*  Academic Reports will be ready to view on June 10th.

We feel the information shared via ManageBac is vital to our goal of working together as a community of IB Learners.
Parents Interested in Serving on the Parent/Community Advisory Comittee are Needed
We need three great parents who want to have a voice in the future of CECA to serve on our Parent Community Advisory Committee.  This is an important group that meets monthly through the school year in order to advise the CECA Board of issues and opinions from our parents and the community.  Be a risk-taker, join the PCAC!  Please contact the office at 909-790-3207 if you are interested!
Student Reports Are Now Viewable
Student reports are now viewable in ManageBac.  The report has been generated several times to make it easier to identify different academic areas.  The grades have not changed, just the template layout.  Please make sure you are viewing the latest email you received to be sure you are viewing the correct report.  Thank you for your patience with us as this move to ManageBac has not been without its technical challenges.

You will see a section labeled Custom Rubric Grades with specialized designations and services listed.  If there is a Y next to any of them this means that area applies to your student.  If the area next to the listed specialized designation is blank it does not apply.

The last page of your student report is a key that identifies the meaning of the O,S, N, and U along with M, P, I and Y letters used throughout the report.  This page was inadvertently omitted from the first version.

I you have further questions, please call (909) 790-3207

Again, thank you for your patience as we work through this new system.
