Dear Parents,


Thank you for reading this week’s edition of the Middle School News and Views. It has been another successful week of exploring, learning and having fun in the Middle School,  as our students have been busy completing projects and assessments in advance of the Winter Break.

We had our Winter Wonderland Social tonight, which was good clean fun for those in attendance.  It is always good to see our students dress up.

On Tuesday, December 12, we had our monthly house competition which was a lip sync competition.  The students had a tremendous time.  It was great to see our students modeling our core values of courage as a performer, or showing respect and compassion as a member of the audience. I have to say that it, is moments like these that make me proud to be apart of this Middle School.








Last weekend we hosted a local MathCounts competition. More about MathCounts is found here.

Next week Thursday we will have our annual Elementary/Middle School House “field event,” where students will engage in friendly competitions with each other throughout the morning. The afternoon will involve “free pizza” courtesy of the PTO, and some friendly sports competitions between houses. It promises to be a fantastic day and a great way to wind down the first half of the school year.


Once again, the PTO Book Fair was a huge success.  It is great to see students walking and talking about the books they have in their bags and are looking forward to reading. This type of event takes a lot of planning, and we would like to say thank you to Yara Tatanaki, Nina El Shabrawi, Mayrose Doss, and Soha Daghash. We would also like to thank Carmen Awn and the other parents of the PTO for taking the time to show they gratitude by providing faculty with a lovely lunch this week.


Thank you for your continued support of the Middle School.


In Partnership,
Courtney Bailey

Middle School Principal

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.
