It was a bittersweet week in the Secondary School, as we said goodbye to our Seniors on their Last Last Day. All students took one last opportunity for a fist bump or a high-five as the Seniors did a victory lap to end the day on Friday. We are now hard at work getting started for 2023-24!

Parents of 6th and 7th graders will receive an email regarding scheduling for next year soon, please look for it. Within the email will be a description of scheduling changes for next year and a form to request a Fine Arts class for next year.

Scheduling for next year’s 11th graders should be completed this week. Next year’s 10th graders should be done by the end of next week and then we will start on next year’s 9th graders.

The end of the semester will not include an “exam schedule” in the High School, but that does not mean that students will not have exams. Exams will be held in the normal class schedule, teachers are coordinating to ensure that students don’t have too many exams in one day. If your student feels they have a particularly difficult day of exams and would like to request an alternate schedule, please have them contact Mr. Balding.

The CDS High School Drama Department will present “The Play that Goes Wrong” on June 2nd (7:00 PM) and June 3rd (6:00 PM). Cost of admission is 5,000 colones each, with a family maximum of 15,000 colones. Please use the following form to RSVP for the performance, payment is made at the door: The Play that Goes Wrong Tickets

From the College Counselor

The course selection meetings are in full throttle. Next week I will start meeting with the rising Sophomores. These 15-minute meetings will define the courses to be taken in future years, aligned with the intended major. Parent are welcome to attend these meetings.

As we prepare for the upcoming summer break, just remind our students to be impactful, to find their unique selling point, and to be change-makers.
