CDS will be closed on Monday, November 12
in honor of Veterans Day.
As we celebrate the men and women who have served our country in the armed services, we would like to extend a very special thank you to the proud veterans from our own faculty and staff:
Carrollwood Day School’s Performing Arts Department is pleased to present their very own mini One Act Festival on Saturday, November 10 at 7:00 pm. Both the Middle and Upper School Thespians will showcase their competition pieces, completely run by the students. Middle School Jr. Thespian Troupe #89245 will perform Epic Fail and Upper School Thespian Troupe #7235 will perform #Viral. Read more about these one act plays.
We are still in need of volunteers to help at the gate and in the concession stand for this important game!
If you can take a shift, please do.
Our athletes, guests, and our seniors,
deserve a wonderful experience.
We are also in need of three adult volunteers to run the chains for the game.
If interested, please contact Baker Mabry.
Trends both in and out of our school show students are feeling stressed starting at young ages. This program is part of Carrollwood Day School's commitment to partner with parents to support the overall well-being of our students. Parents with children of all ages are encouraged to attend this program.
Dr. Lindsey O'Brennan is a licensed psychologist and owner of Morningstar Wellness. She works with teens and adults who are experiencing stress, anxiety, and overwhelm due to their school, work, and life demands. She is also an adjunct faculty member and clinical supervisor for school psychology students at University of South Florida. She plays a leadership role in a research project that focuses on developing materials for students, teacher, and parents of high school students in Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate classes to help manage the stress associated with their accelerated coursework.
Dr. O'Brennan has done presentations this year for our 9th and 10th grade classes that were very well received by the students.
Friday, November 16
Carrollwood Day School will be closing at noon, as scheduled, on Friday, November 16. However, due to unavoidable staffing shortages, CDS will not be able to offer any after school programming next Friday.
We regret have to cancel these programs for next Friday and apologize for any inconvenience these closures may cause our families. Unfortunately, we have received notice from a majority of our after care workers, many of whom are college students, that they will be traveling and unable to work next Friday afternoon.
