Good afternoon CSUS families and caregivers,

I hope all enjoyed a wonderful and reflective long weekend. We are looking forward to an exciting week, including Civics MCAS testing, celebrating our scholars’ talents and hard work at The Cambridge Public Library’s 25th Annual Poetry Awards ceremony on Wednesday, The Spring Choral Concert and Art Show on Thursday, AND at the Civics Showcase on Friday. We hope to see you out and about supporting our scholars!
Please see below for additional important updates, reminders, and dates.

Library Books are Due
Email notices for overdue or lost books will be sent to caregivers on Wednesday - please check Parent Square. We appreciate any help you can provide to help your scholars locate (and remember to bring to school) any of these books! 

Join the Parent Caregiver Organization (CSUS PCO) meeting this Thursday, June 13th at 7PM
The next PCO meeting will be held virtually, on Thursday, June 13th from 7-8:30PM. This is our last meeting of the school year and will focus on transition planning. We could use another current 7th grade parent or two to help out with the PCO for next year.

If you are interested in helping with the PCO next year, but have questions or cannot attend this meeting, please email [email protected].

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