Message from the Superintendent


“Hello. This is an important message for parents from the Chico Unified School District. 

With the impending winter storm, our goal is to ensure all students are safe and have appropriate shelter during school hours.  We recognize many parents have responsibilities that prevent them from being home during the school day.

Schools in the Chico Unified School District will be open on Thursday and Friday, including after school programs, unless closed upon the recommendation of emergency services personnel. 

Please encourage your child to dress in layers (for example, a sweater and a jacket) on Thursday and Friday.

We will respect the right of individual families to make decisions regarding whether or not to send their child to school during the severe storm conditions anticipated for tomorrow, Thursday, December 11, 2014. 

Please note that depending upon the severity of the storm and possible damage to roadways, there is the possibility that CUSD may not be able to provide transportation to and from school tomorrow.  If emergency personnel or the California Highway Patrol recommend that vehicles not be on roadways, CUSD buses will not be able to transport students.  

For up-to-date information throughout the day, please visit the CUSD website at www.chicousd.org or you may call the CUSD automated information phone line at 530-891-3000, ext. 911. ”

Message from the Principal

Tim Cariss - Principal

Welcome back after a wonderful week of vacation!  I hope all of you had a restful break and enjoyed time with your families.  I hope that your family will take time during the busy holiday season to join us for our Family Night with Santa and Silent Auction next week!  The silent auction is a new addition to the event and it looks like it will be a lot of fun!  Thank you to Mea Bickel and the Rosedale PTA for coordinating this event! 

Evening with Santa has been postponed to Thursday, December 18th due to the inclement weather.

The generosity of the community donors has been overwhelming.  The list of items to be auctioned is very impressive and continues to grow.  Please see below for more information on this event.

Thank you students and parents for participating in our absence make-up days last week!  We had over 100 recuperated attendance days during our 2-day intersession.  Thank you to Mr. Carriere for coordinating the days and to the teachers and aides who worked.

Giving Tree

The Nurtured Heart Approach

The Butte College Foster/Kinship Education Program presents Trainer Russ Hansen, LMFT and The Nurtured Heart Approach.  Sessions begin March 26th @ 6:00 at Butte College Skyway Center.
The Nurtured Heart Approach® (NHA) is more than just a parenting or educator behavior management strategy. It is a philosophy for creating healthy relationships with the people in your life. Originally created by Howard Glasser in 1992, NHA® is being successfully implemented through families, classrooms, foster caregivers, health care professionals, social workers and criminal justice organizations that are seeking successful, early intervention techniques.
The Nurtured Heart Approach® consists of a set of strategies that assists children in further developing their self-regulation and has been found effective with children of all ages. It focuses on transforming the way children perceive themselves, their caregivers and the world around them. Children learn to understand that they will receive endless amounts of praise, energy, recognition and reward through the positive behavior they display and this supports children to build a positive portfolio of themselves, which we call “Inner Wealth™.”
