Good afternoon CSUS Parents and Caregivers,

Koi FishMay is Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage month and Jewish American Heritage Month! In addition to dedicating time in their classes to celebrating the history, contributions, and culture of Jewish Americans and the AAPI community, CSUS scholars also exhibited their art, Koi Fish at last weekend’s Somerville-Cambridge Asian Festival. The piece below was created by Theia Lund, Quinn Soper, Ilya Gray-Pai, Clio Flackett, Josephine Nichols, and Zetta Coyle Rasovic.

Koi fish often embody strength and perseverance to face life's challenges and to move forward in Asian art. The students at CSUS found Koi Fish to be the perfect symbol for their experiences navigating middle school during the pandemic. The students have shown great resilience and creativity and just keep swimming.

Tuesday, May 31st will be the last day for CSUS after school programming. CSUS staff appreciates scholar enthusiasm and excitement for our after school clubs and activities and look forward to hanging out again next school year!

Our Spring in the Arts concert is THIS THURSDAY, May 26 from 4-8PM. If your child is participating in the Visual Art Show or the Evening Performance please have your child follow up with the VPA Program Director for information about uniform, call time, dress rehearsal, etc. Note, per CPS guidelines all audience members are required to wear a face mask and show proof of vaccination for entry. “Grab and go” meals will be available for families to take outdoors to eat or to bring home. Thank you for your support and feel free to reach out to CSUS Administration for more info on audience guidelines.
