PTO Information:

We owe a great deal of gratitude to our PTO volunteers who have enriched the lives of CILA students this year through our International Days. Students have been able to learn about Madagascar, The Democratic Republic of the Congo, Afghanistan, and Iceland. They have learned interesting information about the geography and people of these places along with participating in art projects and tasting food from each country.
It has been a great deal of work organized by our PTO president Jennifer Vail and many other volunteers.
Thanks also to the CILA parent community in general for providing supplies and support. CILA students are regularly offered unique and powerful opportunities to learn about the world around them. These opportunities will help them become successful global citizens.
Thank you CILA PTO!
Contact Jennifer Vail at to find out more about our PTO.

Other Information:

Math Masters Pilot Program:
Students taking Spanish will have an opportunity to pilot a new program led by Martha Salazar designed to increase fluency with Math Facts. Once a week, students will have a chance to take a quick 1-minute mastery quiz on certain
math facts associated with their grade level. Parents will be provided with information to help students do well and become masters! Math Masters will be recognized in the Monday Message.

Uniform Reminder:
Most CILA students are doing a great job keeping the uniform policy-thanks, parents! 
A few reminders-inside jackets or sweaters must be uniform colors.

No Hoodies

Only Tennis Shoes unless there is snow and then only snow boots, not dress boots.
