Words from our Director

Hello CDS Families,
Words from our Director | 18 November 2022 | CDS Costa Rica - words-from-our-director

I hope this finds you well. One of my favorite things to do in our weekly staff communications is to give “Shout Outs” to members of our staff who deserve a little extra recognition. It is a nice way to show people that you notice and appreciate their work. Today, I’d like to offer a CDS Community Version of the weekly Shout Outs. I wish you a wonderful weekend and look forward to seeing you all next week at Thanksgiving!
