Fifth Grade Promotion Ceremony News

Parents of 5th graders! Today, in your child's backpack, you will find some important information about our 5th Grade Promotion Ceremony on Tuesday, June 12th at 10:00. Our event will take place on the front grass and there will be a luncheon for the students immediately afterwards in the cafeteria.  It is a potluck and we will need lots of hands to help with decorating the cafeteria. Our Fifth grade teachers, Ms. Pressley, Ms. Calicchio, Mrs. Thiemann, and Ms. Calano, will need parent support for this day to be amazing for the students. Please make sure to check the backpacks and sign up for whatever you can to help our team of wonderful teachers out! Thank you in advance :)

A Message from Superintendent

Dear CUSD Families:
As another school year closes, I want to thank you for being our partner in providing the highest quality educational programs possible for all of our students. 
We made great strides in 2017-18, refining our focus on preparing students for the rigors, challenges and opportunities of their future. I look forward to working together on that important job in the coming school year.
For now, I thank you, and I hope you and your family will take the time to enjoy some well-deserved summer fun.  

Sincerely,
Shelly Viramontez, Ed.D.

Results of Student Conversation Released

A Message from Superintendent Shelly Viramontez, Ed.D.

We want students to begin to own their own learning, be empowered, and actively engage in their education. For that reason, we must give students a voice and hear directly from them about what they like, want and feel they need in their school experience.

To gather that input, we chose a Student Voice ThoughtExchange, an easy-to-use and interpret method with questions for our students in grades 3-8. chart of participation dataNearly all of them participated in the April 2018 online forum, sharing their thoughts and ideas with us and each other. The district- and school-level results are available online and from your child's school. They offer valuable information for school and district plans aimed at providing students with an education beyond the expected.
