CSL Project Based Learning
Our CSL classes has been trailblazing for Project Based Learning approach for a few years now. This year, we are ready to put it at full speed! So far, the CSL Intermediate class has completed the Superheroes project which you will see their personalized superhero costumes in the parade tomorrow. A full video can be found here.
Their next project is to host a Garage Sale in December. More details will follow. I can't wait to see they are putting their language in a real live event!
Covid Response Team
Our school follows the same Covid policies of Shaker School District and CDC. And thank you for having been partners with us!
Since we come back to be in-person this year, CAoC has formed a Covid Response Team to take care of all relevant matters. The head of the Covid Response Team is Dr. Ya-Fen Wang, an associated professor of the College of Nursing at Kent State University.
More importantly, Dr. Wang has also graciously accepted to be the Vice Principal of CAoC. She was the Director of Academic Affairs for 2019-2020 school year. I'd like to specially thank her for all she has done and will be doing for CAoC.
We always welcome suggestions and feedback from parents. We believe strong relationship with families is the way to help your children succeed!

We also love to have parents to bring in special hot food or desserts for our break time snacks. Here is the signup link!
