Thank you for reading this week’s edition of the Middle School News and Views. We had another wonderful week of learning in the middle school before heading into Spirit Week.
Next week will be spirit week in the Middle School. It will be a week of good clean fun, which means, students will dress up in themes each day. The week will start off with a buzz and will include lead up activities at lunchtime each day. The culminating events will take place on Thursday afternoon in the gym. Thanks to Ms. Ennis and Mrs. Tatiana for their efforts in preparation for this event.
We will be posting Progress Reports online for your viewing on Thursday, April 13th. The snapshot of student learning will be helpful as we head into the final few months of school, and prepare for our student-led conference on May 23rd. Please stay tuned for more announcements about both of these important events in future editions of News and Views.
During our Spring Break, April 15-22, Mr. Dino and Ms. Tatiana will accompany 17 students from all three divisions on a ski trip going that will take place in Passo Tonale, Italy. The students will have six full days of skiing and fun activities in the beautiful Alps. Each participant will be provided at the end of the trip, with ski certificate of accomplished ski level. This is the fourth year that we are running this trip and it has always been a memorable trip for our students.
Today we had our final Maker Day of the school year. Once again our students had an opportunity to use the design cycle, inquiry, experiential learning, and hands-on problem solving through collaboration. Our Maker Day features experimentation and innovation across engineering, science, art, performance, and crafts. It is an excellent opportunity for our students to be empowered through design thinking. There was buzz and excitement filling the MS auditorium during the show-and-tell session at the end of the day.
Thank you for your continued support of the middle school and all we do to develop students socially and emotionally.

Moving from CAC at the end of the year?
To help us plan for next year, and to prepare your records in time for your departure, please use the link below to let us know if you are withdrawing from CAC this year.
Booster Club Financial Assistance Program
The CAC Booster Club supports a limited number of traveling CAC student-athletes and activities participants each season with a cash grant equal to half of the cost of the athletic/activities trip, not to exceed $500.00 US dollars. This assistance is available to families on the basis of need, and limited to funds on hand and to one time per student, per school year. The application process is confidential. A committee that includes four members of the CAC faculty and/or administration and a Booster Club member will review applications.
For Upcoming Games' Schedule
Annual Community Surveys Coming Soon
Every year CAC surveys community members do gather important feedback about multiple topics: student learning, campus facilities, curriculum, activities and sports, and leadership. Surveys are sent to parents, students, teachers and staff, and trustees.
Input from parents is especially important because you selected CAC as the place to educate your child. The surveys will arrive by email in the near future.
As with last year, if you have more than one child attending CAC at different grade levels, you have the opportunity to complete a portion of the survey for each child at CAC separately. This gives you the chance to provide specific feedback based on the different experiences of each child.
Each parent/guardian is encouraged to complete the survey.
If you have any questions, please contact David Chadwell, Curriculum Coordinator, email@example.com.
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.
