From Manuel J. Fernandez

Dear parents and caregivers,

It has been a while since I wrote you about the happenings at CSUS. I returned from medical leave on March 19th on a part-time basis. I will return to full duty on May 1st.

Believe it or not, Spring is here! Our annual spring activities include athletic competitions, art and music exhibitions, portfolio presentations, science exhibits, the CSUS marching band in the Memorial Day parade, MCAS testing, and the grade 8 trip to New York City to name a few. We have included in this
Take Home Tuesday packet a list of our spring events. We look forward to seeing you at as many of these events as possible. More specific details on each event will follow soon.

Tomorrow night (April 11), CSUS is pleased to host a joint school council meeting with the school councils of Cambridgeport, Fletcher Maynard Academy, and King Open. Among the agenda items will be the new upper school math program to be unveiled in September. We hope that you can join us for dinner at 6:10PM and the council meeting at 6:30PM.

When we return from April vacation, CSUS will sponsor Diversity Dialogues with three other CPS schools affiliated with Reimagining Integration: Diverse and Equitable Schools (RIDES). RIDES is a Harvard University-based collaboration committed to authentic diversity and integration in all schools. Join us for dinner on April 26th at 6PM followed by presentations and lively discussion beginning from 6:30 - 8PM.

Enjoy next week’s Spring break. I look forward to interacting with many of you as the school year winds down.

Thank you for your continued support. We understand that you have choices and we appreciate you choosing CSUS!

Head of School
