Principal’s Message

Welcome Eagles and Eagle families,

With great joy and gratitude, I would like to welcome you to the 2022-23 school year at Capitol Heights Academy. We are excited to welcome our scholars and families to our brand new state of art campus  at 7300 Folsom Blvd on Monday, August 1st at 8:00 am.  At CHA we prioritize academic achievement as we prepare all scholars for an opportunity to attend and graduate from a 4 year college: College for Certain.

Here at Capitol Heights Academy we believe we belong so we can become Capitol Heights Academy PROUD!

Our primary goals for the upcoming year are to:

  1. Believe: All scholars are meaningfully engaged in rigorous, standards-aligned, culturally responsive academic programming.
  2. Belong: We will cultivate communities that foster inclusive, joyful, and safe learning environments.
  3. Become: All scholars have access to a team of diverse, effective, and thriving professionals who are developed and supported to show up their best and enact culturally responsive and anti-racist practices.

I strongly believe that working together as an effective team and in partnership with our community is essential to our success. For this reason, we enlist your support in ensuring that your child:

  1. Attends school daily and arrives on time, ready for the day’s learning experience
  2. Completes all  assignments given by teachers
  3. Reads daily to develop a love for reading and to improve literacy skills
  4. Provides you will important home/school communications (check backpacks daily and join ParentSquare for the most updated information) 
  5. Informs you if they need additional support in any area or subject
  6. Knows that you expect them to succeed in school and go on to college

Additionally, please consider volunteering at CHA, as our scholars can greatly benefit from your involvement and contributions to the school’s program and its operations. We seek volunteers to help us with the following activities:

  1. Teacher-led instructional support, usually in the classroom
  2. Reading with children
  3. School-wide events
  4. Student recognition events
  5. Outreach and recruitment of parent and community volunteers
  6. Participate in PTA, SSC, school wide committees and monthly family events

There is important information in the handbook. Please take some time to review it.  If you have any questions about it, please feel free to contact me or to discuss them with your scholar’s teacher. It is very important that you and your child are fully informed regarding expectations related to Aspire and to our specific school site for a safe and productive school year. This year we will be starting at 8:00 am and end at 3:05 pm. Wednesdays will continue to be minimum days with end time at 12:35 pm.  

At CHA, we work very hard to listen deeply to our families to create meaningful partnerships to support your scholar(s)’s success. We urge you to reach out anytime during our school year. Should you have any questions or needs prior to our August 1st start date, please call us at (916) 739-8520.  See you very soon!

 

In partnership, 

Ms Chohan
