Field Day is Wednesday, May 31st!

Students and Staff have a fun-filled morning of team-building games, such as a baton relay race, potato sack race, etc. Students know the games and have been working as a team. In order for it to be a fun-filled day, students should dress comfortably, wear sneakers, wear sunscreen, and bring a labeled water bottle. In addition, students should show good sportsmanship and most importantly-HAVE FUN!

Family Fun Fest - Thank you!

Thanks to everyone who joined us at our Candyland Family Fun Fest! It was a wonderful afternoon spent with the CAS Community. Thanks to our teachers, staff, and parent volunteers for a memorable event!

Leave your mark on the CAS Courtyard

The CAS PTO, Artistic Landscaping, CAS staff, and the Madison School District have been working on a plan to revitalize our inner courtyard. We are very excited to provide our students with the opportunity to learn and grow in a peaceful, outdoor space. There will be areas to quietly read and for full classroom learning.

We will be creating a safe, low maintenance space with a classroom area, reading nooks, and a pathway covered with 4x8 pavers, all surrounded by potted plants and whimsical extras for the children to enjoy.

We need your help to make this happen! Click here (or visit https://polarengraving.com/caspto) to buy a personalized, engraved paver to fill the space and help fund the project by Friday, June 9.

Summer Learning

As the school year comes to a close, we would like to emphasize the importance of maintaining your child’s academic growth. Some call it "summer learning loss," others call it the "summer slide." Without regular practice, new skills and knowledge will suffer.

In order to help families during the Summer Break we have compiled some suggested activities. Click here for the full list!

Time to start thinking about school supplies!

All your supplies can be ordered conveniently through 1st Day School Supplies. Supply kits will be delivered to your home at least 2 weeks prior to the start of the school year. This is an easy way to support the CAS PTO and get your shopping done at one time!
