CRLS Connects Summer 2018 Chromebook Distribution 
CRLS Connects is a comprehensive program at CRLS that aims to provide support and access to technology resources for all students and teachers. In SY16-17 all CRLS teachers were provided a laptop/tablet computer that allows for more flexible, efficient and innovative teaching and collaboration. In SY17-18 all CRLS 9th grade students received a school-issued Chromebook laptop to support their academic work both in and out of school. In addition, twenty-one teachers, who primarily support students in grades 10-12, received a class set of Chromebook laptops allowing daily access to digital resources in support of instruction.

This August, all rising 9th grade, rising 11th grade, and rising 12th grade CRLS students will receive a school-issued Chromebook laptop, effectively providing comprehensive access to technology resources and to support academic success.

The Chromebooks are on loan to students and remain the property of CPS. Students will have access to the Chromebook 24/7 during their enrollment at CRLS.

Math Summer Packets
Is your student taking a math class next school year during the fall? If the answer is “YES” then they have a summer assignment called a math pre-course packet.

Pre-course packets feature skills and material that your student needs to know before they begin their math class in September. Finishing the packet before the first day of class is a requirement and teachers may give a test or quiz on the packet material or they might count the packet as part of your student’s homework grade. View the Packets >>

They can also be found in the Learning Community S office located on the 2nd floor of the Rindge Building in room 2119.

If your student has any questions, please have them talk with their current math teacher or see Dean of Curriculum Jeff Gaglione in the Learning Community S office.

Super Seniors

Super Seniors 2018
Each year, Cambridge Rindge & Latin School graduates nearly four hundred ambitious, beautiful, interesting, funny, dedicated, special, and spirited young people into the real world.

On average, 92 percent of each graduating class heads off to a two or four-year college, university, or technical school.

Every new graduate has a story to share. Here are a few, some of which were chosen on the merits of their academic standing and some of which were chosen by the school for the way in which they embody the school motto of Opportunity, Diversity, and Respect. View the Class of 2018 Super Seniors's website >>

Helpful Summer Camp & Gap Resources
Chances are that your families are starting to inquire about enriching summer or gap experiences for students. I want to make sure you are aware that TeenLife.com is an excellent, free resource for these types of experiences. We list more than 7000 programs! Two weeks at a pre-college summer program on a college campus may be all a student needs to open their eyes to what's possible. To search for a program, simply type a special interest in the search bar of our home page, leave the location blank, and click on "Go". Then choose a filter to narrow down the search to Summer or Gap Programs. The more specific the search term, the better, for example Civil Engineering rather than Engineering or Sculpture rather than Art. If the number of listings is too large, conduct the search again with the name of a State in the location field. 


Open Board Position
Is your CRLS student also an athlete? Are you interested in getting more involved at CRLS? FOCA is a volunteer led 501C3 looking for parent volunteers to support FOCA’s goals and mission. We have 3-4 openings (including President), as we have 3 parents leaving the Board this year as they children have graduated. Learn more >>
