Thank you for reading this week’s edition of the Middle School News and Views. Our third and final trimester began this week with many of our students beginning new elective and exploratory courses. Our elective programs provide our students with the opportunity to explore and learn new skills. This new experience helps to shape them as learners and motivate them to persevere through challenges. The Middle School fosters an environment where students are celebrated, not tolerated.
Students from the CAC middle school attended the International Theatre Schools Association (ISTA) Drama Festival in Toulouse, France from Feb. 23rd - 26th. The theme for the festival was "Life, but not as we know it" which was about the question: if there were alien races looking down on us what would they think about humanity?. CAC students worked with the ISTA artists in ensembles and as a whole group, to create an inspirational and memorable piece of theatre about what it is to be human. CAC students stayed with host families of the International School of Toulouse (IST). Students came back from the festival inspired, and filled with new ideas and new international friendships!
Next week, in the theater on Tuesday, March 7th, CAC ES/MS will be hosting the city-wide Spelling Bee competition. There will be nine other schools participating. Each school has gone through the process of selecting their top three spellers, therefore; this will be the final round. Come out and support the students. Go Eagles Go!
Our Parent/Teacher Conferences are coming up soon, taking place on Tuesday, March 14th from 3:30 - 5:00 pm and a full day session on Wednesday, March 15th from 7:55 am – 5:10 pm.
Thank you for supporting the middle school and all we do to develop students who are socially and emotionally balanced.

ES Students’ Leadership Food Drive
This year HS GISC Club is supporting Stabl Antar Dream Project in a Local Vocational School Located on a small mountain in old Cairo, residents of Stable Antar live in absolute poverty with severe deprivation of basic human needs, including food, safe drinking water, sanitation facilities, health, shelter, education and information.
GISC Club presented the project to the ES Student leadership team and the team decided to combine efforts for a better impact.
ES Students’ Leadership Team is now calling for Food Donation from the whole CAC community to support the residents of Stabl Antar. Donation Box will be at the Front Gate from February 28th to March 16th.
Please, support the Cause!!

Lost and Found
Part of educating students at CAC is encouraging independence through increasing responsible behaviors. We constantly encourage students to label their items so that they are easily identified and returned back to the owner. It is also important that students know what to do when they lose any of their items.
Here is what we advise students to do when they report a lost item:
1- Look everywhere (lost & found table/class/playground/inside backpacks/home ,etc,...)
In order to support our students and community members with the above process, we created the below Lost and Found link to help us track of lost and found items.
