From the Director
Dear CDS Community,
I'd like to begin by thanking the many parents who attended our information session on Thursday. I hope the meeting left you with a clearer understanding of our goals with the new Flex time program. Already we are seeing excellent results, and we believe Flex will have an even greater impact on our students' academic and personal development over time. CDS teachers are eager to help each of your children achieve their potential.
I also hope Mr. Biarje was able to answer your questions about the World Language progression. I've included the presentation slides below for anyone who was not able to attend. Please reach out if you have further questions.
We have a very active week ahead of us with a 6th Grade musical performance on Wednesday, a 5th and 7th grade field trip to the Seoul Botanical Gardens on Thursday, and finally We Run Cheongna on Friday.
As the weather is getting colder, we want everyone to stay healthy! I noticed a lot of sniffling and sneezing on campus recently. Please encourage your children to get plenty sleep in the coming weeks and wash their hands often.
Have a great weekend!
Director of Middle School
