RCDS Upper School Athletics teams are having a blast on spring training trips! Go, Wildcats!
Congratulations to our winter athletes!
This February, the Rye Country Day School Drama and Dance Department presented the 2018 Upper School Musical, Pippin at the White Plains Performing Arts Center. The cast and crew did an incredible job throughout the three days of performances - congratulations to everyone involved! Please enjoy this gallery of images and video showcasing this spectacular show.
Upper School students Warren Kennedy-Nolle and Patricia Bautista organized a 17-minute silent commemoration to remember the victims of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting. The names of each of the victims were read aloud, and after each name, the RCDS community stood in silence for one minute.

During February, students and faculty at RCDS recognized and celebrated Black History Month. Several Upper School students handed out pins featuring the colors of the Pan-African Flag, and even though February is now behind us, many are still wearing the pins. Ali Morgan, director of Diversity and Inclusion, says: "Black History Month is a time when we make a special point to celebrate the achievements of African Americans, but we also work all year long to make sure that black people and all people of color see themselves reflected in our curriculum and in our community.
Thirty-one RCDS students have been recognized by the 2018 Scholastic Art and Writing Awards, which were established in 1923 by the Alliance for Young Artists and Writers to recognize "the vision, ingenuity, and talent of our nation's youth." A jury of leaders in the visual and literary arts blindly judges student submissions on the basis of the Awards' core values: originality, technical skill, and the emergence of personal voice or vision. Student talent and skill are acknowledged by a Gold Key Award (top honor), Silver Key Award, or Honorable Mention. Visit artandwriting.org/about-us/ for more information on the awards.
Congratulations to seniors Kyle Christopher, David Jensen, Diogo Schaffa, and Jason Sheppard for being honored as National Merit Scholarship finalists.
