There are 196 countries in the world. In social studies, the sixth graders have been given the task to add one more to that total. This project, also known as Create Your Own Country (CYOC), follows a month and a half of studying the acronym G.R.A.P.E.S., which stands for the six big ideas of social studies: geography, religion, achievements, politics, economics, and social structures.

Last week, the fourth graders went to Washington, Conn., for their annual visit to the Institute of American Indian Studies. The students visited a recreated Lenape village, made "talking sticks," and visited a model longhouse. This trip brings to life their learning about the Eastern Woodlands Indians. View photo gallery.
Athletes, parents, and coaches gathered for the Fall Sports Awards on Tuesday, November 18.

The Saturday Enrichment and Tutorial (S.E.T.) program is a tuition-free, academic-enrichment program to improve English literacy skills for local public school students in Grades 1-4. The SET program is designed to give students extra support during the school year to improve their reading and writing skills in English. Educators agree that the most important factor determining academic success is having the ability to read and write well in English. SET classes are taught by a team of trained, Upper School student mentors from RCDS who use curriculum developed by a team of Lower School faculty. In addition, SET offers an English as a Second Language (ESL) program for parents at the same time as the SET program for students. The ESL program is taught by a team of RCDS faculty, staff, parents, and students, and is also offered at no charge. Photo Gallery on Wildcat World.
