Message from Principal Bartolini
Holiday Wishes!

This time of year can be many different things to different families. Some of us celebrate Christmas, others do not. This really doesn't matter, all that matters is family. We all know that our lives can change in a second. It could change for the worst or better. This is why we must take the time to share love and joy with our families and friends.

This time of year is very exciting for CPJMA. For the next couple of weeks our students will be involved in many different activities that center around the holidays. I love this time of year because I just fill up with pride and warmth when I listen to our students performances and watch all our families coming together to be part of these activities.

I want to thank all of you for allowing my staff to be part of your child's learning life. CPJMA teachers and staff care for each and every student and do their best everyday to supply each student with a rigorous and exciting learning environment.

I am proud to be the leader of this fine school. I love all of our students. They are all special in some way. They all carry a gift to the world. Thank you for being such a wonderful CPJMA family.

I want to wish everyone a very joyous holiday season and a new year filled with good health and happiness.

Principal Bartolini
