Eagle Eye 03-7-2017

Report cards will be posted after school today via Skyward. We look forward to seeing all of you for conferences on March 14 or 15.

Principal’s Coffee will be 22 March, 2-3pm in the ES Hall. We are looking forward to sharing an overview of the CAC’s curriculum in the elementary school. Find out more about our standards, scope and sequences, and subject programs. This is a general information session. We hope you leave with a broad understanding of our curriculum.

Our Kindergarten students had a lovely visit to Al Azhar Park on Monday, experiencing a beautiful place that was once a garbage dump! We discussed how we can keep our environment clean and safe, and how we can improve areas. Students also saw the old Cairo walls and the Citadel from the highest point of the park. We enjoyed some time on the playground and a picnic in the gardens, before returning to CAC.
