CLEVELAND SCHOOL OF THE ARTS
WEEKLY NEWSLETTER FOR UPDATES & REMINDERS
Week of August 14-18, 2023
A note from the Head of School
Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year!
I hope everyone had a great summer. We are excited to have all of our new and returning scholars back for the start of the school year. Our teachers and staff have begun working to prepare the building for your return.
As we prepare to return next week here are several reminders to make the first week of school a success. First, all students are to report to school on August 21st. CSA will not have a staggered start for any grade level. On the first day, your scholar will have a grade-level orientation to review expectations for their new classes and have a chance to ask important questions to their teachers. Next, lockers will be assigned throughout the first week of school. Lockers are clustered by grade level. Please remind your scholar to not share lockers with classmates. Finally, scholars will be expected to be school ready. This means learning will begin immediately in our classrooms. We have big goals this school year and want to get off to a great start.
Important times to remember
- Doors open at 8:00 am
- The first class is at 8:35 am
- The school day ends at 3:05 pm
- There are no after-school activities this first week of school
Scholars can meet their teachers and staff on Friday, August 18th at the Back to School Bash from 11:00 am - 2:00 pm. This year the bash will be located inside the school. There will be food vendors, live music, and of course...teachers! School supplies will be passed out as well.
If you are returning family and you have moved over the summer, please update you the school with your new address by using the link below or calling the school main office at 216-838-9000
Yours in Education,
Ricardo Franklin Sr, Head of School
