Upcoming Middle School Events
There are a number of year-end culminating events that we would like to bring to your attention.
Friday, May 26 – Step Up Day: Your MS student will have an opportunity to speak with their teachers for next year and preview some of the program highlights that await them. This event will happen in the morning, following Friday’s assembly.
Friday, May 26 – Final MS Dance: This dance will be the current 5th grade’s first one! The event will begin at 6:00 p.m. The entrance fee is $5, but students can pre-pay if they do not want to carry any money with them that evening. Snacks and drinks will be provided. The dance will end at 8:00 p.m. for grades 5-7, allowing the final hour to be exclusively for the 8th grade class. Please do not bring outside guests for this dance; CDS students only.
Friday, June 2 – Graduation: This year's graduation ceremony will be held at 1:30 p.m. in the yard of our 333 Dolores campus. All students in grades 5-7 should either arrange to be picked up at 3:30 p.m. in the white zone on Dolores Street or (if they have self-sign out) make sure that their pickup location is at least two blocks away from the intersection of 16th and Dolores Streets. As usual, aftercare will be available for students in grades 5-7 until 6:00 p.m. 8th graders and their families will stay for a reception following the ceremony.
