|Country Day Holds Sixth-Annual Multicultural Potluck|
It was a night of delicious dishes and meaningful conversations at the Sixth-Annual Multicultural Potluck. Students Celebrating Diversity Club hosted the evening and brought together family and friends to break bread and partake in student-facilitated breakout discussions focused around how to create a culture of empathy at Country Day. As a school that celebrates all backgrounds, we continue to foster a respectful, supportive community that affirms and celebrates one another.
|Students Embrace Computer Coding|
To celebrate Computer Science Education Week(Dec 8-12), our Country Day students are participating in the worldwide computer coding effort titled, Hour of Code. 15 million students participated last year, and this year Hour of Code is aiming for 100 million! Coding nurtures creative problem-solving skills and builds preparedness for the tech-savvy world. We especially love our “Girls Who Code” - not only are they part of bridging the gender gap in the computer science field, but they are building confidence in their own coding capabilities.
|Annual International Thanksgiving Luncheon|
Thanks to all of our families who came out for the 3rd Annual International Thanksgiving Luncheon. What a wonderful afternoon of shared dishes and community! A BIG thanks to Mrs. Lindsay Norman, our ESOL Director, for organizing the event.
|Upper School Celebrates the Arts|
For two evenings in November, the award-winning arts program at SCDS was on full display. To kickoff the event, students hosted a reception of the visual arts--ceramics, painting, jewelry and more. The orchestra, jazz bands, and theatre classes also entertained audiences with material they had prepared throughout the first semester. As a special treat, the Advanced Acting Class performed their One Act Play, The Yellow Boat, which recently garnered a regional competition win and a runner-up finish in the state competition. Bravo to all of our talented student artists!
