Hello Middle and High School Families! 

Country Day School - Brian Balding

Secondary was a great place to be this week! We had parent-teacher conferences on Wednesday and we are celebrating Halloween with the return of the dance for Middle School on Saturday. We also had our first pep assembly on Monday, for girls and boys basketball. The boys competed in AASCA this weekend. 



Effective today, October 28, the CDS MAP assessment window for students in grades 1-8 is now closed. If your student still has not completed any portion of the assigned MAP assessments our staff will connect individually with your student to make-up an assessment. MAP scores will be made available on our student information system (ISAMS) no later than November 11.  We will communicate with all families once the MAP assessment score is final and published. 

Reminder about the Halloween Dance on Saturday from 7:00-9:00 for all Middle School students. Also, please note that trick-or-treating is for ES/EC students only. 


The High School GSA will be conducting a raffle this week. Tickets will cost 1,000 Colones, there will be two winners who get Uber Eats passes to use during lunch for 10,000 Colones. Students can purchase tickets in front of the High School office during lunch this week.
