Dear CMP Community,

I have some important, and exciting, news to share with you, regarding Principal Kim Aldridge and Dean Maria Ostendorf.

Kim Aldridge has accepted a new position at the CMP-Elk Grove campus on Elk Grove Blvd., where she will serve as the Site Administrator/Policies & Procedures Coordinator.  She has faithfully served both the Carmichael and Orangevale communities for the past 18 years.  This new position will allow Ms. Kim to provide network-level leadership in a critical oversight role. 

Maria Ostendorf has been selected as the new Principal at CMP-Orangevale.  With ten years of administrative experience, Ms. Maria has served the CMP-Capitol campus since 2003.  She holds a CTC Multiple Subject Teaching Credential, as well as Montessori Certifications at multiple levels (6-9, 9-12 and Secondary), and holds a California Administrative Services Credential.  Maria is passionate about Montessori education, and is eager to support the CMP-Orangevale community.

Please, join me in Congratulating Ms. Kim and Ms. Maria, who will be assuming their new roles on July 1st.


Gary S. Bowman, M.S.Ed.

Executive Director/Superintendent, California Montessori Project
