Wildcat Weekend is a festive occasion during which the entire Rye Country Day community comes together to cheer on the Wildcats. Whether for the Fun Run, a varsity game, Fall Fair, or the Alumni Making a Difference Panel, we very much hope to see you on campus this Saturday.
Last week, Middle School students in Grades 5-8 embarked on a new, yearlong, service-learning project in their homeroom and advisory groups. With guidance and support from the Office of Public Purpose and Middle School Public Purpose Coordinators Jessica Kaplan and Tim Silverman, homeroom groups will work throughout the year on student-driven projects in the community (RCDS, the local community, or beyond) related to three grade-level themes, which were selected based on student responses about issues in the community that matter to them. This year, the grade-level themes are animals (fifth grade), water (sixth grade), and hunger, homelessness, and poverty (seventh and eighth grades). Read more on Wildcat World.
Emily Duarte '15 was named last week's winner of the Con Edison Scholastic Sports Award, which recognizes a local high school athlete “for setting an outstanding example of achievement and sportsmanship (both on and off the field) to the youth of Westchester County.”  Emily was recognized for her outstanding performance in field hockey, her high academic achievement in the classroom, and her exemplary school and community citizenship. Read Emily's interview with the Journal News.

Each day this week, we will feature a recent student publication. Today, we put the spotlight on Omega, the Upper School's literary journal. All Upper School students are invited to submit to the journal. The Omega staff reviews submissions and shapes the publication. They also run several programs throughout the year in the interest of cultivating and celebrating literary creativity in the Upper School. They run creative writing contests; host a children's book drive to benefit various nonprofits, including RCDS's SET and SCOPE programs; coordinate a spring volunteer opportunity for Upper School students to design and run creative writing activities with Lower School students during their library period; and sell poem-grams. Omega went to press last June, and was recently distributed to the Upper School. Read Omega online.
