Good afternoon CSUS families and caregivers,

We hope all had an enjoyable April break and are ready for an exciting week ahead. Our 8th graders will be taking the STE MCAS on Tuesday and Wednesday. The CSUS Parent Caregiver Organization meets on Thursday.

Please see below for information about Semester 2 Progress Reports, start and end times for next school year, the CPSD Art Show, Scholar Artist of the Week, and important dates at CSUS. Happy Passover to those in our community celebrating this week!

Semester 2 Progress Reports
Your scholar’s progress report is now available for review via ASPEN here. We encourage you to review the third quarter progress report with your scholar, and to talk with them about their achievements as well as their goals for the second half of the semester. If you have any questions, please reach out to your child’s advisor or to their classroom teacher.

Parent Caregiver Organization (CSUS PCO) meeting this Thursday, April 25th at 7PM (virtual)
The next PCO meeting will be held virtually, on Thursday, April 25th from 7:00-8:30PM. This meeting will focus on our upcoming spring events, including our first ever Cobra Dash Fun Run.

We are still actively seeking 6th and 7th grade parents who might like to help out next year, especially caregivers who might be willing to help with PCO leadership. No special experience is needed to volunteer with the PCO, and it is a great way to support the school.

For more information about the PCO or to donate or sign up as a volunteer, check out our website here.
