Dear Middle School Families, 

It was a busy week in Middle School. We completed ERB testing, celebrated Earth Day and held two of three Rising Parent Evenings. The Rising Eighth Grade Parent Evening is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, April 27th. A reminder with Zoom link will be sent to current seventh grade families on Monday. The recordings for the other two meetings will be sent to families in those grades over the weekend.
 
If you have not already, please mark your calendars for All Day 4 CA next week (April 29-30) to join in celebrating and supporting the accomplishments of our faculty, staff and students this year. I am proud of how our faculty and staff have worked together, focusing not on the limitations of the pandemic but on supporting each of our students. We have adapted our teaching to accommodate remote and in-person attendance, continued some middle school traditions and reimagined other ones. We are grateful for the generosity you demonstrate through your Annual Fund contributions each year. They have allowed us to continue the work we enjoy and count as most important with your children.
 
Next Thursday, April 29th, will be a special “spiritwear” day to celebrate All Day 4 CA. Students and faculty/staff are encouraged to go “all in” with spiritwear. Students may dress from head to toe in CA gear. Accessories like scarves, hats, socks, temporary tattoos, etc. are acceptable. Jeans and yoga pants are not allowed. Maroon or gray items may be worn in lieu of CA logo apparel as long as there is not another logo on them. We look forward to everybody showing their spirit on that day. Mrs. Carter and I will be ready!
Regards,

Shaka Arnold
