Welcome to CPCS
The mission of Chesapeake Public Charter School is to offer each student a unique educational experience within a reflective learning community. Through a modified school calendar, multi-age students in small class settings will engage in a curriculum of meaningful connections and diverse perspectives. This engagement will be achieved using technology, the environment, the arts and community resources. This school will provide a safe, orderly, caring and joyful reflective atmosphere in which respect for all is evident and the outcome of empowered, self-directed learners is expected. Our goal is to build a solid foundation for higher education and the desire to continue learning, growing, sharing, and contributing in multiple capacities throughout each person’s life.

FALL WALK & FUNDRAISING FESTIVAL
Save the date! Our annual Fall Walk will be held on September 28th from 3:30 pm to 6:30 pm at the picturesque West St. Mary's Manor Farm on the St. Mary's River. This is one of our largest fundraisers of the year. Every CPCS family that raises a minimum of $25 is invited to attend. Students are encouraged to reach out to family and friends to collect pledges or donations for walking a certain number of laps. Each student can set their own goal. After they complete their laps, families are invited to participate in carnival games, crafts, face painting and very exciting event with the staff of CPCS. Be on the lookout for the Fall Walk packets that are coming home with your children.
Pizza and other concessions will be available for purchase at the event. Or feel free to pack a picnic dinner, lawn chairs or blanket and hang out with fellow CPCS families.

We will begin our first round of Project Electives on October 19th and we are looking for volunteers now!
WHAT IS AN ELECTIVE?
Project electives are additional educational classes: extensions and enrichments to classroom objectives, core commonalities, and our charter's overarching themes. Each elective will focus on a theme. Our first session will be tailored towards WORLD CULTURES & ART. Our objective is to have electives correlate with each theme. Electives are held on Fridays from 1:45 pm – 3 pm, beginning October 19 – Dec 7 for a total of 6 weeks (Oct 19, 26, Nov 2, 16, 30, Dec 7)
Electives are run by both CPCS Staff and volunteers like YOU! Electives are offered to our students, throughout the year in multi-age groups of approximately 15 students.
1st-2nd Grade / 3rd-5th Grade / 6th-8th Grade
If this sounds like something you’re are interested in, please contact me directly and let me know what it is that you would like to share with our students by Monday, October 1st.
