This is the first year that RCDS students will participate in this international competition
On Tuesday, Governor Cuomo signed into law an amendment to the 2017 legislation enabling the New York State Thruway Authority (NYSTA) to sell the Boston Post Road property to RCDS. Sponsored by Assemblyman Steve Otis and Senator Shelley Mayer, the amendment supercedes the requirement in the 2017 legislation of a shared use agreement between the School and the City of Rye and establishes instead a requirement for the School to offer public user groups rental access to recreational facilities there for 29% of usable hours.
Congratulations to the eight Upper School dancers and the Drama and Dance department on the inaugural Student Choreography Showcase!
The event featured presentations by Rye Country Day School educators from several disciplines who shared diverse makerspace projects.
"In many ways, our lives today are overwhelmed by stimuli that challenge and frustrate our desire to be happy. What is one to do in such an ethos? How do we protect our emotional well-being and teach our children to do the same, fostering an environment that is positive and healthy for young people in which to grow up?"
