Congratulations to the WildScats who took home 1st place at Gilda's Club A Cappella Extravaganza at Scarsdale HS.
The Rye Country Day School community sends its heartfelt condolences to the family of Mrs. Barbara Pierce Bush. Mrs. Bush, a member of the RCDS Class of 1943, delivered the commencement speech in 1982 and continued her connection to and support of Rye Country Day throughout her life.
The spring weather has arrived allowing Pre-K students and their fourth-grade buddies to go on a scavenger hunt, looking for shapes around campus.
Kindergartners recently engaged in a study of homes around the world. After establishing the definition of a home, they investigated the styles and materials used to meet the need for differing shelters around the world. They also reflected on their own homes, inside and out. Synthesizing all that they had learned over the course of the study, the students each created a model home. A tremendous learning experience, and also a lot of fun!
This week RCDS welcomed six alumni back to campus to meet with Grade 11 and Grade 12 Peer Leaders. The alumni, who were also Peer Leaders during their time at RCDS, shared their experiences and reflected on the leadership skills they developed while participating in the program.
Special Delivery! After visiting the Rye City Post Office, first graders were inspired to provide the same service to the Lower School Community. Last week, the Grade 1 Post Office opened selling postcards and stamps for a penny each.
