|Welcome to the Middle School. Except during infancy, there is no stage of life when young people go through more changes in such a short time - and in every aspect of their lives. It is often bewildering to them and to their parents! |
So here at Savannah Country Day, we offer opportunities for our middle schoolers to grow confidently as individuals, to take risks, to solve problems, to make a difference, and to have fun in a safe,supportive environment. Our faculty, exceptionally friendly and competent,understand that interacting with such curious, energetic students requires patience, humor, and sensitivity. Working in partnership with parents to see that every student experiences success is a top priority.
I invite you to browse our web pages and get to know us better. Middle School is an exciting place to be!

|Academy Awards in Middle School|
Eighth graders have been studying Romeo and Juliet for the past few months, but the real excitement came last week when students finished their video projects and held the Academy Awards for the entire Middle School. After much interpretation of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, students wrote and directed their own plays!
|Under the Sea|
On Tuesday, December 17, seventh graders enjoyed classes at the University of Georgia Marine Extension program on Skidaway Island. Holding horseshoe crabs bravely and correctly, identifying fish fins, and learning about what to feed an octopus were just some of the activities they enjoyed.
|Seventh Grade Trip to the Savannah-Ogeechee Canal|
On Friday, October 18, the seventh grade visited the Savannah-Ogeechee Canal site to learn about its history and its ecosystem and to lend a hand with necessary site maintenance. After learning about the historic canal system (and having fun capturing amphibians from catch traps), the students spent time painting benches and picnic tables and spreading mulch to form paths through the butterfly garden.
|Snowflakes in October|
Even though it has been rather toasty outside, Mr. Shinall's Middle School Science class has been busy making snowflakes! In keeping with their study of the different states of matter, the students used pipe cleaners and borax to create snowflakes in beakers. The students left the solution to sit undisturbed overnight while the magic happened.
