|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 The 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!

|Sixth-Grade Walks The Red carpet At Their iMovie Premiere|
Stars- they're just like us! Especially if they are sixth-graders at the première of their iNCREDIBLE iMovie Festival. These hornets walked the red carpet to watch their own films, each created as a "movie book report". At the end, a few select hornets were awarded their very own Oscars for categories like best cinematography, best use of storyline and many other categories. These film starlets then posed for the paparazzi on the red carpet and gave their best smiles. This film premier was just part of the sixth-grade Independent Reading Project this quarter and a way for students to promote their own reading projects in a motivating and entertaining way.
|Seventh-Graders Become Teachers In Wordplay|
Mrs. Stice’s seventh-grade hornets take charge of their English class! The students start each day working silently on a grammar concept —most recently, the lesson was present and past participles. After coming up with their answers, students then take charge of the classroom and get to be the “teacher” during feedback. Not only do the kids revel in that leadership, but it also means they get to dole out a treat for the grammar winner of the day!
|Eighth-Graders Build Muscles With Strength Training|
Our eighth-grade hornets worked their muscles with some heavy-duty strength training. Led by our Strength and Conditioning Coach, students and teachers split up into teams, taking turns spotting each other while lifting weights and working to achieve their rep goals. A diverse array of physical education activities is just one of the many facets of Country Day’s commitment to physical health, challenging our students to push themselves every day
|Middle School Dance and Bake-Off!|
It was a "Black & White" affair for students at our most recent Middle School Dance! Prior to the dance, students were split into groups and charged with bringing in at least four dozen cookies to be judged for a chance to earn 25 class cup points. Student council representatives gave the cookies to the maintenance department as a gift (and for them to judge), while the remaining cookies were consumed at the dance. It was a "sweet" experience for all!
