From the beginning of this school year, we have been acknowledging the important role that our 6th Grade students have in setting the tone of our school, and serving as role models for our younger students -- they are at the 'top of the (CSDA) food chain', after all! We have stressed that this is their opportunity to lead, and make a statement about who they are as students and citizens at CSDA. We have spoken to them and recognized them for their effort and success in this area. This group is really doing a fantastic job setting a high standard for others at CSDA.
On the afternoon of Friday, September 19th, we held a 'Celebration of 6th Grade Excellence', and took a little time to play together, enjoy the fine weather, and appreciate the wonderful start that our 6th Grade leaders have given us this year. We played games that afternoon that emphasized communication, collaboration, creativity, and critical thinking. The students did so well, then and since, that we are motivated to hold another Celebration of 6th Grade Excellence very soon!
