Good afternoon CSUS Parents and Caregivers,

I hope you are preparing for a restful and restorative end to 2021.

As we approach the upcoming holiday break, we’d like to provide you with a few updates about CSUS and what you can expect upon our return on January 3rd. Below we’ve shared information regarding our new online homework calendars. For more information, please email your scholar’s grade level team leader. You will also read about COVID updates, our upcoming school play and opportunities to become more engaged with the CSUS community.

What’s happening at CSUS?
There’s a lot going on when we return from break - you can preview our January calendar here.

What’s my scholar working on?
We are also excited to share our 7th and 8th grade Homework Calendars; these sites are visible to scholars, caregivers, and after school and community partners to share what work scholars should be completing each night of the week. Check them out below!

Grade 6 caregivers, watch your inbox for the team’s monthly email containing updates on projects, presentations, and celebrations!
