Dyslexia and ILP-D Family Information Sessions

The CMCSS Instruction and Curriculum Department will host information sessions throughout October for families interested in learning more about dyslexia and individualized learning plans for dyslexia (ILP-D.) Families may have received a phone call from their child’s teacher or paperwork sent home recently. These information sessions will answer questions regarding the CMCSS screening process and new state requirements. Caregivers can pre-submit questions to ensure they’re answered by emailing [email protected]. Pre-registration for the information sessions is not required.

Topics will include:

  • What is dyslexia?
  • How does CMCSS screen and support students with dyslexia?
  • What are the updated state regulations with Individualized Learning Plans for students with characteristics of dyslexia? (ILP-D)
  • What questions can I ask my child’s teacher to support my student at school?

East Montgomery Vocabulary Parade- Friday, September 22, 2023

We will have our annual Vocabulary Parade on Friday, September 22, 2023 at 9:30 a.m.  The parade will take place in the front bus circle, weather permitting.

How does my child get ready for the parade?

Choose:    Help your child select an AWESOME vocabulary word for this project.  (One that would be fun to create a costume to represent the word and its meaning).

Create:  Design your costume, using t-shirts, boxes, hats, fabrics, etc.  Be sure that your child can see and walk safely with the costume on!

Make a Vocabulary Card:  Make a large card with your child’s word on it, so everyone knows which vocabulary word he/she represents!
