Good afternoon CSUS families and caregivers,

It is Hispanic/Latinx/e Heritage Month at CSUS! While we work hard to ensure our scholars’ identities in curricula and classrooms throughout the year, from Sept 15-Oct 15 our community is elevating and celebrating Hispanic/Latinx/e culture and contributions. This year's theme according to the National Archives website is “Todos Somos, Somos Uno: We Are All, We Are One.”  

Historically pre-pandemic, CSUS has hosted an annual potluck for Hispanic/Latinx/e Heritage Month. If you are interested in planning how CSUS celebrates with our wider community, please connect with our Family Liaison Will Adams at [email protected].

I hope your scholar is settling into a rhythm and routine at CSUS. We are looking forward to getting to know you and your scholars better in the coming weeks. Some formal opportunities for connecting with CSUS include

Parent Caregiver Organization (PCO) meeting: September 26, 2023 | 7:15-8:45PM, contact Tina Lieu at [email protected] 

Listening Conferences: Your scholar’s advisor will contact you later this month to schedule a conference where we can hear from you and learn more about your child and family.

Back to School Block Party on September 28. Come to meet your scholars’ teachers and get to know the CSUS community partners. Stay for music, food, and fun!

If you did not see a welcome letter from your child’s teacher(s) via Parent Square, you can find them on our website here

You should be receiving messages and information directly from your scholars’ teachers and/or teaching team via Parent Square, and we are also always happy to hear from you -  you can reach any member of CSUS via email.
