Happenings for November

We will be participating in several fun activities in the next upcoming weeks at City-As-School which require your participation:

  • Wednesday Nov. 5th from 4:30-7:30 and Friday Nov. 7th  from 1:30-3:30 are Parent/Teacher Conferences
  • Nov. 7th from 11:00-1:00 City-As-School School Wide Learning EXPO
  • Nov. 18th SLT Meeting from 5:00-6:00. Parent Association Meeting from 6:00-7:30
  • Nov. 25th and 26th from 11:30-12:30 are our Annual Thanksgiving Holiday  Feasts 

Our Annual Thanksgiving day feasts have become a tradition in our school. It is a time when the students can feel appreciated. Everyone in our community donates food, time, and funds to make it a successful event. Our faculty and parents serve our students and we offer two days so that all of our students can attend. This is the time when we need your help the most, we get 100% attendance each day for these events; 300 students each day. We ask if you donate a dish that you make enough for at least 30 people.

If you are to make a donation/volunteer please send me an e-mail or a phone call.

We look forward to seeing you next week!

Kind regards,

María Bermúdez




College and Career Week

It’s that time again; College and Career Week will be October 20-24, 2014! In order to encourage our students to be FUTURE FOCUSED, we really need everyone to be fully invested. CACO staff is asking all staff to show their support by doing any or all of the following:

  • wear college gear (it doesn’t have to be from your own college), such as t-shirts, caps, sweatshirts, sweatpants, pins, etc…
  • wear career-related gear, such as a T-shirt from the Carpenters’ Union or one that says, “If you can read this, thank a teacher.”
  • talk to your students about your own college experience
  • talk to your students about your other career (entrepreneur, tutor, sign language interpreter)

Here is a brief calendar of events:
