Greetings, Middle School Kodiaks!
Welcome to 2023 and a new semester at CSS! We are a few weeks in and back to the momentum of learning. Students are energized and the Trianon hallways are ringing with laughter and excitement. Let’s take a look at some special announcements and upcoming events for the next several weeks.
Welcome to Our New Spanish Teacher, Señora Wagner
This semester, Señora Brittani Wagner joins the Middle and Upper School faculty as a new Spanish teacher! We are thrilled to have her join us in growing the language and cultural knowledge of our students. Please reach out to Señora Wagner at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions about your child’s class or to say, “Hello and welcome.”
Middle School Ski Trip Sign-up Now Open
On Saturday, March 4, CSS will host 6th- through 8th-grade students on a ski trip to Monarch. If your student would like to participate in this one-day event, please complete the I Want to Ski! survey by no later than Monday, January 23. School ski trips are a fun way to introduce students to skiing and to make great Middle School memories!
Middle School Activities and Clubs
This quarter, students have signed up for a variety of clubs and activities that will meet from 2:25 to 3:15 p.m. on Mondays and Fridays. Students chose between Speech and Debate Club, Matchwits, Walking Club, Game Club, and tennis. Athletes playing basketball will begin attending clubs and activities when their season ends in the last week of January. Meanwhile, athletes who will participate in a spring sport will wrap up their attendance at clubs and activities when the new athletic season begins in March.
