Good afternoon CSUS Parents and Caregivers,

We hope you are enjoying the springtime weather!

The scholar attribute we celebrated this month was ORIGINALITY. 6th and 7th graders came together to share and celebrate one another’s work and talents. Highlights included sharing work from our Bullet Journaling Elective, upcoming 7th grade science Zero Gravity Science Projects, 6th grade science lego modeling, Creative Movement projects from PE, scholar-designed movie posters, Women’s History Month research, and a performance of an original song by 6th grader Clio Flackett. Our 8th graders were busy scheduling their courses for CRLS, but we are looking forward to honoring ORIGINALITY with our 8th graders in the coming weeks.

A reminder to caregivers that our MCAS testing dates are as follows

  • ELA: Wednesday, April 6th and Thursday, April 7th
  • Math: Wednesday, May 4th and Thursday, May 5th
  • STE (8th grade only): Monday, May 18th and Tuesday, May 19th
  • Scholars in our Small Learning Communities may test on other/additional days as staffing allows. Your child’s teacher will communicate MCAS dates with you directly.

All scholars should bring chromebooks and chargers to school tomorrow (Wednesday) in preparation for our Infrastructure Trial on Thursday. The Infrastructure Trial will take place during Advisory and is a quick opportunity for scholars to practice logging in and ensure their device works for testing day. Chromebooks will remain at CSUS tomorrow and be returned for scholars to take home on Thursday.

Cell phones are not permitted during any portion of the MCAS. We ask that scholars keep phones home or keep them silenced in their backpacks for the duration of MCAS testing.

COVID Updates
Last week from 3/23-3/29 we had 2 positive COVID cases. Families at the impacted grade level received a separate communication from CSUS.

If you are interested in receiving weekly at-home rapid tests for your scholar, opt-in through the CPS Family Portal or by contacting Ms. Howard. Rapid tests should be administered Friday mornings before school. Positive results should be reported to the Main Office.

Thank you for entrusting us with your scholar’s learning. We understand that you have choices regarding your child’s education, and appreciate you choosing CSUS. Your partnership and trust are a huge part of what makes CSUS spell SUCCESS!

Have a wonderful rest of the week!
Christen
