Back to School Information
Good Afternoon CUPrep and CCA Families,
We hope you are enjoying your summer, spending time with your family and finding ways to beat the heat!
August 10th and 11th, our first days of school, are fast approaching. We are doing something a little different this year. We are welcoming families back by grade level on August 10th and 11th. We have some important changes and improvements to our program and we want to make sure everyone has a chance to learn about them and ask questions. On these days we will be talking about…
Student Schedules - Students will be receiving their schedules and accessing their classes on Canvas at these sessions. Some of their first assignments will be due by the end of the week (August 12, 2022), so it is important that they get started!
Staff Introductions - Students and parents will have a chance to meet their teachers and other school staff.
NEW Regulations - This sounds quite dull, but it is not. It is actually very exciting because it means we will NOT HAVE LOGS this year! Staff will briefly present information on what the new regulations mean for families. We will also have important paperwork for families to complete which will allow us to forgo logs.
Networking - Both parents and students will have the opportunity to meet and establish relationships with other families. This will help build our community and give everyone a strong foundation for the coming year.
NEW Canvas and AERIES Parent Portal - We received a great deal of feedback from parents who would like to check their students’ progress on Canvas and AERIES regularly. We listened and will be showing parents how to access these new features!
Materials - Students will receive some instructional materials and may check out chromebooks if needed. Additional materials may be distributed on the first classroom days, August 15th and 16th.
Student Opportunities - Staff will present information about student support, travel opportunities, elective options and will answer any questions you might have.
We are hoping that you can all make it for your grade level sessions. Of course, we understand if you cannot and will have make-up sessions at the end of the day. (The drawbacks of the make-up sessions are that not all staff may be present and you will miss out on meeting other families.) If you have students in two different grades and are not able to attend both of their sessions, feel free to pick one of the times and bring both students.
