From the Director

Dear CDS MS Parents,

The second week of school has been full of activity and excitement. On Monday morning, dozens of student council campaign posters began to appear on the middle school walls. In the afternoon we gathered in the Small Theater to hear candidates share their great ideas and hopes for the new school year. Candidates clearly worked very hard to prepare and all the teachers were impressed with their enthusiasm and eloquence.

Later in the week, students were able to see which Co-curricular clubs they'd been placed in. Fortunately, most were able to get into their club of choice. Co-curricular clubs will begin on Monday, August 28th. Please visit the roster on the Middle School website.

We would like to thank you all again for attending Back to School Night on Wednesday evening. We hope you found the event informative, and that you enjoyed visiting classrooms and getting to know your children's teachers. If you weren't able to make it, please be sure to review the slideshow currently posted on the Middle School website.

Also on Wednesday, students were placed into their Dalton Cup teams, and spent the afternoon drafting logos for team flags, designating captains, and creating chants.

The week ended with student council elections. Students voted today for the peers they felt would best lead the middle school this year. It was a tough choice for many students, as this year's candidates are all wonderful kids with much leadership potential. On Monday 8/28 we will announce the winners during Lab time, and our new student leaders will have a minute or two to address the middle school.

Have a great weekend everyone.
