The 4th Annual CDS Athletic Banquet was a great success! The evening got started with a bang as students bustled into the Phoenix Cafe and were greeted with tables set with elegant flowers and placemats, and a buffet of lasagna, salad, and of course everyone's favorite, barbecued steak! There were even two giant sports themed cakes for desert! Coaches teared up when seeing the hard work the students had committed to preparing thank you cards and autographed team photos for each and every one of them. After the feast was complete, students were ushered into Dalton Hall were the Awards Ceremony began. After a rousing speech by High School Assistant Director Mr. Musselman, the ceremony was underway and teams were called up to the stage one-by-one and awarded certificates for team Scholar-Athlete, Most Improved Player, and Most Valuable Player. Team captains drew raffle tickets from the Dalton Cup to give away special prizes! Thanks to the combined efforts of the MS Parent Volunteers and HS Athletic Council, we were able to raise over 750,000 KRW for the Athletic Banquet prize giveaways! In the end, 7 major awards were bestowed upon our most prestigious athletes and coaches. The Boys Soccer team won the Team of the Year Award, Mr. Monette won the Coach of the Year Award, Phillip Yoon and Fiona Park won the Scholar-Athlete of the Year awards for the boys and girls divisions, Jace Kang and Jueun Lee won Sportsman and Sportswoman of the year respectively, and Jace Kang won the Phoenix Award! After recognizing the graduating seniors graders, there was one last surprise left in the ceremony. Jace Kang and Phillip Yoon were honored by getting their jersey numbers retired by CDS! The ceremony then came to a close and all participants drifted into the night with a belly full of steak, some new hardware in their hands, and without a doubt, smiles on their faces! Thanks to all for making this year's Athletic Banquet the best one ever!
On Wednesday, May 22nd CDS will host the 4th Annual High School Athletic Banquet! All students that played on any High School sports teams this year are invited to come and celebrate! Dinner will be served free of charge in a buffet style from 5:00-6:00 PM in the Phoenix Cafe, followed by an Awards Ceremony in the Dalton Hall from 6:00-7:00 PM. All parents of athletes are welcome to join at 6:00 PM for the Awards Ceremony! Although many students will be winning individual awards, every team will have a chance to be recognized on stage for their contributions throughout this school year! There will be a lot of prize giveaways throughout the night so please join us for this fun event to wrap up our athletic calendar for the 2018-19 school year! Students are asked to RSVP by returning the slip on the bottom of their Athletic Banquet invitation. This in turn makes them eligible to win the grand prize!

The weekly parent teacher forums kicked off two weeks ago, and they have been very successful. The goal of these forums is to build a solid foundation and relationship between the parents and teachers in our community and, ultimately, to create a strong and lasting Parent Teacher Association. It is critical that parents and teachers participate in these discussions as they are the first steps towards building a stronger community that can help positively shape and influence the lives of our students and children.
Over the past two weeks five parents and six teachers have come together to discuss the issue of sleep deprivation. The group explored the issue from all perspectives and came to a better understanding of the issue in general. Ultimately, this is a complex issue that greatly impacts the academic success of our students and their long term health. Topics such as homework, time management, academies, biological and social/emotional factors were explored and discussed on the first day.
On the second day the forum discussed what suggestions we would like to make for all stakeholders in our community (students, teachers, parents and administrators). You can find all the notes from these meetings HERE in both English and Korean. The teachers and administrators will start taking those suggestions seriously and turning them into actions. We would like the parents and students to do the same as a collective effort that will help guarantee the desired outcome: more sleep, less stress and healthier, happier students!
The next forum will be about homework and will held on Tuesday April 30th from 3-4pm. If you are interested in joining please contact Mr. Musselman (email@example.com) or PTO leader Lock-Young Chung (firstname.lastname@example.org) or simply show up!
주간 학부모 포럼이 지난 주 부터 성공적으로 시작되었습니다. 아시다시피 이 포럼의 목표는 학부모님과 교사들 사이의 관계를 보다 돈독히 하여, 앞으로도 힘있게 지속될 수 있는 학부모 교사 협회를 만드는 것 입니다.
학부모님과 교사들이 작은 그룹으로 함께 모여 토론을 하는것을 첫 시작으로 우리 학생들의 삶을 긍정적으로 형성하고 좋은 영향을 줄 수 있는 더 강력한 커뮤니티를 구축할 수 있을 것입니다. 때문에 학부모님들의 적극적인 참여가 매우 중요합니다.
지난 2주 동안 5명의 학부모님과 6명의 교사가 모여 수면 부족 문제에 대해 논의했습니다. 우리는 모든 관점에서 문제를 탐구했고, 그 문제에 대해 전반적으로 더 잘 이해하게 되었습니다. 학생들의 수면부족 현상은 장기적으로 봤을때 우리 학생들의 학업 성공과 건강에 큰 영향을 미치는 복잡한 사안이다보니 여러 측면에서 문제점을 탐구하고 논의 하였습니다.
지난주, 첫 포럼에서 토론한 주제는 숙제, 시간 관리, 학원, 생물학 및 사회/감정적 요인 등이었습니다. 이번 주, 두번째 열린 포럼에서는 학생, 교사, 학부모 및 관리자에게 어떤 제안을 하고 싶은지에 대해 이야기를 나누었습니다. 미팅노트를 클릭하시면 영어와 한국어로 된 미팅노트를 보실 수 있습니다.
저희 교사들과 관리자들은 포럼에서 제안된 내용들을 진지하게 받아들여 행동으로 옮길 예정입니다. 우리는 학부모님들과 학생들도 함께 노력을 하여 더 많은 수면을 취하며 스트레스를 적게 받아 더 건강하고 행복한 학생이 될 수 있기를 바랍니다.
다음 포럼은 숙제에 관한 것으로 4월 30일 화요일 오후 3시부터 4시까지 진행됩니다.
오실 수 있는분은 Musselman 선생님 (email@example.com) 또는 PTO 리더인 Lock-Young Chung님께 (firstname.lastname@example.org) 연락하시거나 그냥 오셔도 됩니다!
다음주 포럼에서 뵙겠습니다
As PT Conferences ended at 4:00 on Friday, so did the 6th Annual Silent Art Auction- with teachers hovering eagerly at the bid table, and student volunteers Zion Chang and Sebastian Shen closing out the official bid window (see video for snapshots of those final few moments).
Although this year we had fewer artworks than in our previous two years, we set records across the board: this year saw the most staff submissions [Mr. Cavasin (2), Ms. Pantano (2), Mr. Menzel (1), Mr. Riniker (1)], the highest amount of student bids AND student purchase work, the longest bidding war for a single piece [Mr. Cavasin's with nearly 20 counter-bids], and once again 100% of pieces purchased!
I am happy to say that this year the auction results totaled out with KRW1,044,000 raised for the TNKR (Teach North Korean Refugees) organization!
Thank you everyone who participated this year. I am really proud of our community for raising so much for charity, and making this event one of the most successful years yet. The Silent Art Auction really embodies the CDS motto "Pioneering to Serve" and is one of the few events the allows FP, MS, and HS members to engage in this act of giving. So, thank you if you made work, bought work, bid on work, or just looked at the work! Special thanks to the student volunteers who worked the PTC auction day (Linda Hwang, Yoonho Myoung, Sebastian Shen, Wilson Shen, Zion Chang, and Eric Lee).
If you were the highest bidder for a piece of artwork, this upcoming week one of the three art teachers (Mr. Read, Ms. Pantano, Mrs. Koetje) will be reaching out via email or text soon soon to inform you of the results, and to collect payment. After you have been contacted by one of the art teachers you can then arrange to pay and pick up your artwork to take home.
