From the Director
Dear CDS Community,
Term 2 has come to an end and we have many reasons to be proud of the progress our students have made thus far in the school year. It was wonderful seeing such meaningful student performances during the Winter Concert and Candle Lighting Ceremony. We're very grateful for all who were involved in making it memorable.
Students should also be proud of the hard work they put into final exams. Taking so many exams in such short period is no easy task. I hope all CDS students can find some time to rest and enjoy a break from the pressures of school during the winter break.
Report Cards have been completed and mailed to your homes, so please check your mailboxes over the next few days.
Have a great holiday everyone!
Director of Middle School
CDS MS students are continually learning to be kind to one another, to persevere through difficulty, to think broadly and deeply, and to ask tough questions about themselves and world around them. They're learning to articulate their ideas, and see value in each other's difference. They’re also learning to see themselves as a part of a larger community and to consider their roles and responsibilities within it.
Teachers at CDS are committed to helping each child practice and develop our school values, the 6 Cs. Twice each year we recognize students who have shown significant growth in these areas. The students below actively practice the 6 Cs and have been wonderful examples to those around them. We are grateful for their service to the CDS community.

2018-19 Term 2 Final Exams
Math with Mrs. Hinds
This game gave students the opportunity to read and graph ordered pairs on the coordinate plane in a fun manner. The students really enjoyed the game and gained a deeper understanding of integers and the coordinate plane.

G5-6 Advanced Spanish: Sharing Students' passions through Podcasting
Do you like soccer? Do you want to practice your Spanish a little bit during the winter break? Are you curious about CDS students stories?
MS Advanced Spanish G/5-6 Project #2 may be what you are looking for! For this project students created their own podcast about a topic they are passionate about. Students had to research, write the script, rehearse it and collaborate together as it was a group project. It was a lot of fun and everyone did a great job. Please enjoy Alejandro Ballesteros and Aarón Amaya´s podcast!
