Dear Parents,



Thank you for taking the time to read this week’s News and Views. With this being the last week of the trimester, students were busy with summative assessments.


Following this week, we will issue Trimester Two Report Cards on Tuesday, March 7th. We will also be hosting Parent/Teacher Conferences on Tuesday, March 14th and Wednesday, March 15th during the afternoon. Next week, parents should expect an email with information and instructions for booking conferences with teachers. Booking will take place online, so we ask you to please be on the lookout for this email.


Thanks to all the parents who came out to enjoy the Drama Showcase on Tuesday night. It was an evening filled with improvising, comedy, and acting foundations students from trimester two. With over 30 energetic and talented students transitioning in and out of improv and scripted dialogue that was well orchestrated. The Improv is a realistic portrayal of the plight of someone we may all know, by a person who can think quickly on their feet. Sometimes, it can be funny, and sometimes it can be dramatic. It’s rewarding. It’s demanding. It’s the price of happiness. Our comedians were funny, no matter the topic there’s always a reason to crack a grin from your seat, when you come for these comedy performances.


On Wednesday we had the elimination round of Battle of the Books. All four houses were represented, and the atmosphere was electric. We are now down to the final round which will take place next week Wednesday morning, March 1st, during advisory.


We also celebrated World Language Day with students having a potluck lunch followed by an open-mic event. The celebration was well attended, and students had an opportunity to perform songs in the language they are currently studying. Once again our students made us proud with the talent and courage they display on stage.

Once again, we appreciate the time that you take to read the week’s highlights.


In Partnership,

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,...)
2- Ask Others (friends/teachers/parents/siblings,etc,..)
3-Ask parents to report to the lost and found link. Upper grade students can do this too.
4- Use the same link to report when item is found.


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.

Relax, Rejuvenate & Revitalise!!
Due to the high popularity of our past yoga classes, and based on many of your requests as parents, Vanessa Moar has been kind enough to volunteer her time to give a yoga class on the last Sunday of every month.


For those of you who don't know her, Vanessa Moar is a yoga teacher - RYT 200 and a registered physiotherapist - McGill University from Canada. Her family has just moved to Egypt a few months ago after living in Kenya and various parts of Canada. Her passion for yoga has grown steadily over the past 20 years as she noticed how much it helped her and her patients stay limber, more relaxed, breath better and recover quicker from minor and major injuries.
She will be teaching a Hatha Flow yoga class focusing on breathing and postural alignment . It is open to all levels.

Date: Sunday February 26th 8am in the 1st Floor Common Room (we ask that you please bring your own yoga mat)
* Entry is by donation to the Booster Club (Any amount will be appreciated)
We will have tea & Coffee after the class, so this is a great chance to get to know other CAC parents from our wonderful community!
We hope you can all join us!!
