In June, the 2019 Back-to-School Page will be published on the school website. This page will contain helpful information and important materials families will need prior to the beginning of the school year — all in one place. You will find summer assignments, school supply lists, technology requirements, and more! This page will continue to be updated throughout the summer.
**NEW** "MS Summer Work" is a new course that is being created on Schoology for all students entering grades 6, 7, and 8. You will be able to find all summer assignments for Digital Citizenship, Reading and Math along with school supply lists.

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.”
The IBO does not require a minimum number of service hours in the Middle Years Programme; however, at CDS, we encourage each student to participate in community and service with a suggested number of hours. It is important to note that students must complete the minimum number of hours and submit their hours before May 10, 2019.
