Please help us with the Attendance Challenge competition – September is Attendance Awareness Month

To highlight the importance of school attendance the District Attendance Team is launching an Attendance Challenge competition.  There will be three areas celebrated during the Attendance Challenge:  Most Improved Attendance Elementary, Most Improved Attendance Middle School, Most Improved Attendance High School (Schools with grade configurations of K-8, K-12, and 6-12 will be evaluated based in the category with the heaviest area of enrollment).   Schools will be evaluated for improvement based on your site’s 2016 attendance data for the comparable time span, the first day of school through the last school day of September.

At CPJMA, we are holding our own attendance contest! Any student who has no more than 1 unexcused absence, 1 late/tardy, and 1 early release will be able to be part of the popsicle party at the end of the month.


Reminder to parents regarding student drop off & pick up

Reminder to parents:

The bus zone on Pacific Beach Drive is for buses only. Please do not park or stop (even for a quick drop off or pick up) before, during, or after school in the bus zone.

When cars block the bus zone, it prevents our school buses from getting students to school on time.

Our car drop off line is located in the staff parking lot on Jewell St. A staff member will be available at the gate to help unload your child for a speedy and safe drop off/pick up process.

Thank you for your cooperation in getting all of our students to school on time.


PTO Direct Donation Drive: Please make an online donation today!

Friends of CPJMA is launching a tax deductible Direct Donation Drive from September 13th through October 27th to raise the necessary funds to support the many wonderful musical, educational, and social programs at our school.

Our goal is to raise $10,000. As a family member or friend of a CPJMA student, we would like your help to support the Crown Point Jr. Music Academy student you love. Every dollar raised will provide for specific PTO programs and events that enrich the lives of our CPJMA students all year long. The more funds we raise, the more support we can provide to the students.

We appreciate your ongoing support to our wonderful school!
