Sarah K. ('19) rowed under Carrollwood Day School at the Florida State Sculling Championships in April and took first place scholastically (third overall - club teams and scholastics combined). The trophy will be engraved with CDS. Sarah, best of luck to you as you head north to study and row at Boston University next year.
Rachael W. ('21) has been recognized by the US Equestrian Athlete Lettering program, which was developed to provide recognition for the accomplishments of young equestrians and encourage their future involvement in equestrian sport. Participants in the program must be students in grades 5–12 who document at least 100 hours of training or provide verification of participation in three equestrian competitions during the year. Congratulations, Rachael, for reaching this milestone!
It’s time to TURN IT UP, again! Summer programs are just around the corner. And this summer, students entering grades 9-12 will be able to choose from two math bridge courses and five for-credit academic courses!
Why spend the summer in class? Students have the opportunity to excel as part of a small cohort focusing on one content area without other demands on their schedule. CDS summer classes help students advance in a subject area or fulfill a graduation requirement in order to free up space in their school-year schedule.
Questions: Reach out to Summer & Auxiliary Programs Coordinator, Melissa Hill.
We are pleased to once again partner with EVOS to provide healthy lunches made from natural, organic and fair trade ingredients. Lunches from EVOS will be available for pre-order for Monday - Thursday. Every Friday is Pizza Friday; pizza can be ordered when registering for camp sessions. Note: Parents are welcome to pack a lunch any day of the week.
If any students currently have medications in the nurse's office, parents will need to pick them up by June 6, 2019. After that, Carrollwood Day School policy directs staff to discard any medication left at the school. We cannot hold medication over summer or send medications home with students.
The medication form completed by parents for the 2018-2019 school year will be void, a new one must be completed for 2019-2020. All medication and special health forms for next year can be found on Magnus Health. The completed forms will need to be uploaded to Magnus Health; no student forms will be turned in to school.

Showing Growth over the MYP 9th and 10th grade
As part of the Middle Years Programme, CDS students create digital portfolios to showcase their learning in each class every year. Each student recently uploaded pieces of work from their classes to demonstrate their knowledge and understanding for the school year.
Please ask your child to share their portfolio on Schoology.
The Class of 2022 has embarked on the culminating experience of the IB Middle Years Programme. The Personal Project provides an excellent opportunity for students to produce a truly personal and often creative product and to demonstrate a consolidation of their learning in the MYP. The project offers many opportunities for differentiation of learning and expression according to students’ individual needs. The personal nature of the project is important. This year's class has shown already a strong interest in building computers, learning sign language, volunteering in our Tampa Bay community and abroad, along with many other topics. Students are strongly encouraged to begin their work over the summer.
