Livermore Police Officer Jen Rios will speak about Cyber Safety before the PTA General Meeting in the Library from 7-7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, September 27. The PTA General Meeting will immediately follow the Cyber Safety presentation.


We are excited to announce that our Otis Spunkmeyer Cookie Dough and Popcornopolis fundraiser has started! All profits from this fundraiser will go towards school activities such as dances, lunchtime activities, and student recognition awards. Please help us make this fundraiser a success by supporting our students when they share the cookie dough and popcorn brochures with you, your family, friends and co-workers. This is not a door-to-door sale. Checks should be made payable to Christensen Middle School Associated Student Body (CMS ASB).

The frozen cookie dough and the popcorn items will be delivered to the school in early November.

All prepaid orders are due October 4-5 during lunch time. 


The students, parents, and staff at Christensen Middle School will celebrate International Walk and Roll to School Day on Wednesday, October 4th. This is a great opportunity to celebrate our health, the environment, and our school spirit. We are hoping every student will participate by either walking or riding their bike, skateboard, or scooter to school. Please remember to follow the rules of the road (including wearing your helmet) when riding a bike, skateboard or scooter.




Day:        Every Wednesday through April 2018 (except holidays)
Time:       From 1:35 to 2:20 PM
Place:      Multi-Purpose Room

     The purpose of MATHCOUNTS® is to encourage interest and develop ability in mathematics among all middle school students. Each week students meet and work problems of varying degrees of difficulty. Volunteer coaches help the students to solve the problems by individually encouraging them to develop problem-solving methods.

     Most of our coaches are current or retired scientists and engineers from Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and Sandia National Laboratory. The Math Department at Christensen grants extra credit for students participating in MathCounts. A list of rules students that are expected to obey during MATHCOUNTS® sessions is on second page of this notice.

     In January students may compete with students in the other Livermore middle schools at a local MATHCOUNTS® competition in which all MATHCOUNTS® students are encouraged to participate. In February a team of four plus possibly up to four other individuals will be chosen to compete in a regional competition with about 20 other Bay Area schools. Then the regional winners will compete in the state competition.

     Support for the MATHCOUNTS® program is entirely on a volunteer basis from the parents and teachers. Parents who want to coach are welcome.  If you would like to participate as volunteer, please contact the school office.

     MATHCOUNTS® is one of the country’s largest and most successful education partnerships. Presidents B. Obama, G. W. Bush, W. Clinton, G. H. Bush and R. Reagan have all recognized MATHCOUNTS® in Oval Office ceremonies, and the program has received two White House citations as an outstanding initiative.
     New students are always welcome at any session during the year. Interested students should complete the Registration Form and bring it with them to the MathCounts meeting.  We look forward to working with the CMS students.
