The 2018-19 school year commemorates more than one special anniversary for Rye Country Day School. This year marks the 25th Anniversary of the WildScats, Rye Country Day's twelve-voice a cappella group!
Grade 6 students had the special opportunity of meeting award-winning author Nora Raleigh Baskin this past Friday at an assembly in Memorial Hall. Nora's book, nine, ten: A September 11 Story was a required summer reading for all incoming sixth graders. The thought-provoking story follows four middle school students from across the country in the days leading up to and following the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
It was a great weekend to be a Wildcat. On Friday, the RCDS Varsity Football team won a hard-fought game against Poly Prep (34-28) to earn the Metro Independent Football League Championship. On Sunday, the Varsity Field Hockey team won its 10th NYSAIS championship title against Hackley, holding off the Hornets with a 4-2 finish. Congratulations to the players and coaches on a phenomenal season! Go Wildcats!
46 Middle School leaders in the L2L program spent the day at Boundless Adventures pushing themselves and developing their leadership skills. The key to the day? Reflection. "How can we bring these skills into our daily lives as leaders at RCDS?"
As a part of their interdisciplinary study of Native American culture, Grade 4 students used the ancient process of flintknapping to create beautiful jewelry using nothing but pieces of stone, water, and a little elbow grease!
