Art is Innovation
In connection with their Unit of Inquiry, ENERGY, our 5th-grade students learned about the Swiss sculptor and painter Alberto Giacometti. Students created their own Giacometti sculptures and added a new 21st-century twist to their creations by making them interactive with Makey-Makey Lab kits and computers. We truly have amazing innovators!

ADMISSIONS FOR CDS SIBLINGS
Our Admissions Department has been very busy giving tours and meeting with families interested in enrolling their children at CDS next year. Based on current enrollment and applicant interest, we know that we will be full in several grades. In order to avoid disappointment for current families with children they would like to enroll at CDS for the first time next year, we are asking our current families to notify the admissions department ASAP about those siblings so that we may start planning. Please email Charlotte Benziger to start the admissions process and to place your name on the list.
Applications are available now for new students, while re-enrollment information for current CDS students will be sent home in January.
There is no better time to discuss positive character than now! We had the honor of hosting Dr. Michele Borba at CDS Wednesday night for an incredible parent talk. It is fitting that Wednesday was also the 5th Annual Character Day, a global initiative which aims its focus at strong character development.
"Education with Character" is what we believe in at CDS; academics are important but strong character is what people remember about you. As stated by Dr. Martin Luther King, “The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character – that is the goal of true education.”
Here is an excellent article that shares '19 Practical, Powerful Ways to Build Social-Emotional Intelligence in Kids & Teens'. These helpful tips align perfectly with Dr. Borba's philosophy and the CDS mission.
Show your school spirit.
Come out and cheer your Patriots to Victory!
Wear your new spirit shirt to school and to the game!

The Mini Musical Instrument Museum is one of the popular interactive features of Elementary's new DREAM Lab. The Mini MIM is a place where children can explore, research, and report on instruments from around the world. The current Mini MIM display features authentic instruments from Ghana. The children have been given the opportunity to study the materials, pitch, and sound each instrument makes. They will now begin researching the ways music, instruments, and dance play a part in the Ghanaian culture.
With the use of Apple TV, students will be able to Skype with children from around the world to form relationships, inquire about cultural differences, and become more globally minded. Once they complete their research, they can share their findings with their peers, using a presentation method of their choice.
In addition to instruments, the Mini MIM also contains computers for research and music composition. Children can use Chrome Music Lab to create their own rhythm, sound waves, and beats.
Share your family's culture through music!
The Mini MIM is inviting families with culturally diverse instruments to lend them to our interactive Mini MIM for student exploration, research, and discovery. Ideally, we would be able to have instruments on display and available for research projects for a semester. Please complete this form if you would be interested in lending instruments for our students to study.
