Great First Week of School!!

CAC has had a wonderful first week of school. We happily welcomed 155 new students from 110 families, representing 22 nations! Our total enrollment for August will ring in at about 788 students, PreK-12. There are still some families awaiting visas and a few with other complications, so we anticipate adding another 10 perhaps, by end of Sept. We closed in June with 785, so a tiny bit of growth, which is a positive for the school. Some images from our first days:

Purpose:  A wonderful opportunity to get to know one another so that we can begin building strong home school partnerships. Parents will meet the elementary team and learn about the many learning opportunities throughout the year such as; the grade’s curriculum, how students learn at CAC, how we communicate, student leadership, field trips, library, student services, and nitty gritty essentials.


MS Newsms news & views
Thank you for reading this week's edition of the News and Views.  Students in the middle school have completed their first full week of classes. We started the year a little differently this time, however. Due to the long summer holiday, we decided to have a week that focused on Socially, Emotionally and Physically aspects of the whole child. Our goal for the week as a middle school was to create an experience that matters. We didn’t want to Welcome students back, with “here are the rules, procedures and a look into the curriculum” without preparing them for what the year would look like for them as learners.  In addition, students have started to develop routines, and foster meaningful relationships with teachers and friends while engaging in authentic learning.

Back to School Night
Please join us on September 12, 5pm-7pm, for the high school back to school evening.  Parents are encouraged to arrive by 4:45pm to pick up student schedules in front of the theater.  The evening will begin promptly at 5:00pm in the MS auditorium.  After the opening session, the entire evening event (except the arts) will occur in the Middle School building as walking to all the classrooms now distributed across campus would be unreasonable in our limited amount of time.
