Market Day - Grade 1


Message from the Head of Elementary



اهلا وسهلا and Welcome to CAS Elementary!

I am delighted to be the Elementary Principal at Collegiate American School -- the home of Sand Cats and Sand Kittens!  At CAS we focus on building strong relationships in small classes to ensure the holistic development of our learners.  I encourage you to visit us at CAS, where you will see that it is very much a community school. We offer personalized attention to CAS students; parents and teachers collaborate closely in support of learning and we are able to know every student and parent by name. I invite and encourage parents to offer their expertise as guest presenters, guest readers, or volunteers in any way that can enrich our learning community. 

CAS elementary teachers deliver the New York State Common Core Standards in Math, Social Studies, English and Science, as well as Moral Education, UAE studies, Islamic Education, Arabic, Music, Art, Physical Education, French and Spanish!  All skills and concepts are taught and explored through engaging units of study that keep learners at the center of lessons. 

The CAS elementary faculty is committed to passionate professionalism. We fully invest in delivering a values-driven educational program based on the six CAS Values: achievement, collaboration, innovation, integrity, respect and responsibility. At CAS, parents and faculty understand that development of these values is a necessity; these overarching values are the key to ensuring that CAS students become good humans and active world citizens, successful in taking action to improve life for all. 

I have learned in my time here that being part of CAS is like becoming part of a big family. For families who have not yet joined CAS, I encourage a visit any day. For all CAS families, students and visitors -- my door is always open.  I hope to see you walk through it someday soon!
