A Commitment for Earth Day

Rye Country Day was recently recognized as a Rye Healthy Yard by the City of Rye Sustainability Committee based on the School's commitment to sustainable lawn care, resource conservation, and native plantings. Joining Headmaster Scott Nelson, Director of Sustainability Kerry Linderoth and science teacher Amanda Sackey in the photo above are RCDS students whose designs received special recognition in the Rye Sustainability design contest. To continue the Earth Day preparations, Mr. Nelson visited downtown Rye to assist with the Rye Sustainability tree planting ceremony for the committee's tree fund, Branching Out For Rye.
