"The teachers and deans began to distribute Rice Krispy treats to the students at the tables. There were about six students to a table and some tables got one Rice Krispy and some got twelve. This caused much unrest among the tables that were given less than others and those who had abundance were laughing since they did not have this issue."

In my remarks at the Parents Association Annual Luncheon, I explained that I had recently come across a brochure written in 1934 by RCDS Headmaster Morton Snyder, in which he describes the RCDS community at that time. Morton Snyder was headmaster at RCDS from 1928-53, which means that, after taking over the School with its new Main Building (built for $200,000), he guided the School through the 1929 stock market crash, the Great Depression, World War II, and the start of the Cold War. Read Mr. Nelson's post on Wildcat World.
The Fun Run was a HUGE success. Over 250 people signed up online for the run, and almost everyone who ran came with food to donate to the Carver Food Pantry. Three hundred cans of food were collected, and we raised $1,051 for the food pantry, as well. What an amazing event – fun and healthful for us, and helpful to others!
