BE SMART! Support the Arts at Cali was started in the Spring of 2014. Cali parents, teachers, and administrators came together to create a plan of action to broaden the scope of education for our students. While we are grateful to be part of a language immersion school where our students become bilingual and biliterate, we also want our students to have exposure to arts programs, technology education and life skills. BE SMART donations help support a huge variety of activities including zero period band, in-school enrichment classes (STEM, technology, art, nutrition, music, and PE,) after school activities such as Odyssey of the Mind, and also the schoolwide social-emotional program Soul Shoppe.  Every year the list of programs and activities supported by BE SMART continues to grow!

We can still accept donations!
You can set up a one-time or monthly recurring donation via PayPal. All donations are gratefully accepted and every dollar helps us reach our goal. Please remember that we have families at Cali who do not have the means to donate $50 per student, so we are asking all families to contribute what they reasonably can. Donations are tax deductible (EIN 90-0338056).

Spring Festival Tickets and Information

Please read the attached newsletter for all the details. Your child should have brought one home already.

We need volunteers! Use this link.

Ticket Sales – No lines!

Admission is $6.00 per person.  Students performing in the show do not need a ticket but all others must have a ticket (parents, volunteers, and siblings*). This policy is due to fire marshal regulations that all in attendance have their own seat. All seating will be assigned and tickets will be sold in advance through the LBC Box Office in person, by telephone, or online. Based on feedback, we have not set a ticket limit per family. However, please note that there are 285 students in grades 1-2 and over 275 in grades 3-4. Please do not purchase extra tickets that you may not use. The LBC can’t resell un-needed tickets. Ticket sales for both shows will begin on Tuesday, May 1st at 12:00pm.

May 16 - 1st & 2nd grades
May 23 - 3rd & 4th grades 
By phone: 707-546-3600, 12-6pm.
In person: To avoid convenience fees, purchase tickets at the box office at 50 Mark West Springs Rd off Hwy 101 at River Road between 12-6pm.

No tickets will be sold at school. Admission monies will help defray the ever-increasing costs of the hall rental and other event expenses.

*Young siblings 2 and under who will sit on a lap, will be given a free ticket at the door if you RSVP by May 4th. There is a limited supply. Please contact Liz at 837-7747 Ext. 4144 or email llockett@wusd.org.

Cali PTA invites you to join us in supporting our 11th annual Move-a-thon. The theme is "Superheroes".

Would you like to be a business sponsor? Forms are due May 18, 2018


The FREE event happens Saturday, September 22, 2018 from 2pm-5pm at the Cali gym and sports field. Over 1,000 Cali students and their families participate in an afternoon of fitness activities: soccer, zumba, basketball, volleyball, yoga, taekwondo, and much more. It’s a great way to bring our Cali community together to have fun and to promote healthy lifestyle choices. All Cali students who attend will receive a free uniform approved t-shirt at the event. The fundraising kicks-off with a rally for the students. Students gather pledges from family and friends and can win prizes for their participation. Pledge packets will be sent home the week of the rally. Please look for the packet in your child’s backpack.

WUSD Board Approves Appointment of
Cali Calmécac Language Academy Principal

During a Regular Meeting of the Windsor Unified School District on Tuesday, May 15, 2018, the School Board approved the appointment of Sharon Ferrer as our new Principal of Cali Calmécac Language Academy. Sharon Ferrer will be stepping into the role currently served by Jeanne Acuña, who is retiring at the end of the 2017-18 school year.
Sharon Ferrer is known to the Windsor Unified School District and Cali Calmécac Language Academy (CCLA) community as she has served the community for three and a half years, first as a Guidance Counselor, and next as their Assistant Principal beginning the 2015-16 school year. Ferrer’s career spans 22 years in education, encompassing both elementary and secondary positions, in private, public and charter schools. Ferrer began her education career as a teaching intern in pre-kinder and kindergarten at the American School of Madrid (Spain). She continued there as an intern teacher in first grade and then went on to teach math and science in grades 9-12. In 2001, Ferrer returned to the States and continued teaching science and math at Napa High School and then in 2002 she became their Guidance Counselor. Ferrer moved on to other districts serving high school and middle school students as an Intervention Counselor and an Assistant Principal, before coming to CCLA.
Ferrer earned her Bachelor’s degree with a double major in Hispanic Literature and Culture and in Biology from Brown University. She earned her teacher certification from Michigan State University. She followed that with a Master’s Degree in Secondary School Counseling from Sonoma State University, and most recently earned her Administrative Services Credential.
Please join WUSD in welcoming Sharon Ferrer to her new role as the Principal at Cali Calmécac Language Academy beginning with the 2018-19 school year.
