CDS Robotics #1
Congratulations to the CDS Patriot Bots FTC team for their stellar performance at their first tournament of the season. They were one of 21 teams competing at the R.O.B.O.T. League of Tampa Bay competition at Middleton High School. Our team and various alliance partners competed in six matches, winning all six and placing first for the day. At the helm were driver 1, Evan M. ('20), driver 2, Justin M. ('23), and Coach Petra W. ('21). Click here to see our Robotics Club in action!
Practice Makes Awesome
Parth M. ('21) and Nitya M. ('25) competed at the World Karate Championships held in Dublin last week.
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.
Stay in touch with Technology!
If you have any questions, please contact Ms. Sabrina McCartney.

The development of research skills is given a central place in the Diploma Programme, as can be seen, for example, through the importance placed on the extended essay. Training in both information-literacy and media-literacy skills is vital for every student. During our upcoming visit to the USF library, librarians will show our juniors how to search the USF library catalog and databases as well as allow them to begin borrowing materials.
USF has requested the following student information in order to issue library accounts that will allow students limited borrowing privileges: Name, Address, Phone, Email, Birthdate, and Student number.
Please click on the link below to confirm that we have your permission to release this information for your student to the USF library staff and to confirm that your student will be in attendance on November 16th for this important field trip.
Please contact Mrs. Hsu, DP Coordinator.
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.
At CDS, we encourage our students to give back to the community. As an IB school, we embrace the mission statement of the IBO, which strives to develop “caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.”

Announcing Senior Privileges
At CDS we are preparing students for college and one of the most important aspects of being successful in college is responsibility. This year, with parental permission, we are providing the opportunity for seniors to practice responsibility by allowing them to arrive late to school and leave early on certain specified dates. Beginning in the second semester, seniors will be able to earn the privilege to go off campus for lunch on Fridays.
Please click here to download more information about these privileges, student conditions for eligibility, and the parent permission form.
