CAC Hosts ISTA!!

CAC is very excited to host an International Schools Theater Association event this week. We have visitors from six different schools, including St. John’s in Brussels and ACS in Beirut. Thank you to the parents who are hosting the visiting students in home-stays. CAC has been struggling since the Arab Spring to attract international schools to Cairo and to be a contributing host school for the athletic, cultural and performing arts events that so enrich our students’ lives. We are THRILLED to be hosting visiting schools from outside of Egypt. Next week, CAC will also host Math Counts, a US Dept of State supported Math Competition, and we will again be hosting students from abroad. We are hopeful that this is a sign of CAC returning to the ranks of the great hosting schools for ISSTs, ISTA, NESDA, MUN, and other events.




Mark your calendars for Feb. 7, 4:15 pm to 5:15 pm. Come play math games with your child. Games develop fluency with math skills and problem solving. Experience the fun of learning through games!
