Welcome Back!

Greetings from the desk of Dr. Gonzalez

Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year!

Dear Parent/Guardians:

Our faculty and staff are excited to welcome you to the 2023-2024 school year! I hope your summer break was full of fun and relaxation and that students are ready to come back for another great year! As a reminder the first day of school for students is August 3rd.

Walk-Thru Registration starts on Tuesday, July 25th – Thursday, July 27th. A registration letter was previously sent to you containing all the important information for our in-person Walk-Thru Registration event. As a reminder the Online Registration must be complete for all students grades 9th through 12th before attending the Walk-Thru Registration. To complete the Online Registration, please login to your existing ParentVue account at https://parent.tusd1.org or stop by the school office to get a ParentVue Activation Key as this Activation Key cannot be provided over the phone. You may complete the Online Registration at home or if you need access to a computer, please come by the office and use our on-site computers, during office hours from 7:30-4:30.

Our focus on academic excellence is highly dependent on student daily, on-time attendance to every class. Students must be in class 95% of the time to be successful (this means that your child should only have up to 4 excused absences per semester). Parents/guardians are an essential component of a students’ success. Let’s work collaboratively to ensure that your student is academically successful and prepared with the needed skills to pursue their life’s goals beyond high school. Please monitor your child’s attendance. Important dates will be communicated via a Newsletter through Catalina’s Parent Link system, please make sure we have your current information to ensure communication. Also, please visit our website for more information.

Additional Information:

• In person Walk-Thru registration July 25-July 27

• Back-to-School Night is August 17th 6-7:30

• Teacher Professional Development Day is August 23rd NO SCHOOL for students

Let’s make this year another great year at Catalina! I look forward to working with you to encourage our students/scholars to excel and work toward their goals. See you Trojans on Thursday, August 3rd, 2023. The first bell rings at 7:55!

I am excited to see you all soon. Enjoy the rest of your summer!
