Principal's Message

Take psd's survey

Dear CLPMS Community,

This is a reminder from the email I sent on Monday. The survey to give input closes on Sunday. 

One of the scenarios – D1 – recommends closing Cache La Poudre Elementary and reassigning students to Tavelli, Putnam, and Irish elementary schools and closing Cache La Poudre Middle School and reassigning students to Lincoln Middle School.

The committee has opened a questionnaire May 10-19 (link here).

We encourage you to please take this questionnaire before May 19. 

The Board of Education will discuss the scenarios again at the meeting on the 28th and is scheduled to make a final decision on June 11th.

Please feel free to reach out to me or Mr. Ellis with any questions.

Welcome to CLP Middle School!

 Parents, Students, and Community,

CLP is a small community school with a proud tradition of excellence and engagement. Located on the beautiful Cache La Poudre River, Cache La Poudre Middle School was built in 1949 to replace the existing school built in 1913. It was originally Cache La Poudre High School. In 1964 it became a Junior High when Poudre High School was built. And now, as of July 9th, 2014, CLP is an authorized International Baccalaureate (IB) School.

CLP is a unique school in the Poudre School District as we serve 310 students. Our small community school prides itself on the relationships, often spanning generations, that we build and maintain with our students and families. The foundation of CLP is Respect: Respect for Ourselves, Respect for Others, and Respect for our Environment.

As an IB school, CLP is dedicated to the holistic education of our students. Every student takes English, Math, Spanish, Social Studies, Science, Art and/or Music, PE, and Technology every year. Students experience an academically rigorous curriculum through inquiry learning. Students are taught to understand who they are as human beings and to engage in their local and global communities.

We here at CLP know each and every student by name and are dedicated to their academic, emotional, and physical growth and success.

Once a Pirate, Always a Pirate!
