Rye Country Day’s annual Grandparents and Special Friends Day is a special tradition that gives students in Kindergarten, Grade 2, and Grade 4 the opportunity to enjoy a fun-filled morning with their family and friends.
The day started in the dining rooms, where students had breakfast with their guests and socialized with their other classmates and special friends. The WildScats, RCDS’s a cappella group, performed a beautiful rendition of Imagine by John Lennon. Following the performance, Dr. Sotirhos addressed the crowd about their exciting day!
Next, grandparents and special friends visited classrooms and participated in activities with their little loved ones. It was especially exciting to welcome former Head of School Scott Nelson back to campus as a proud grandparent!
Following the classroom activities, Kindergartners, second graders, and fourth graders performed a special concert that featured the Lower School favorite "Oh Be Joyful!" and "What The World Needs Now."
At the conclusion of the concert, students gave a loving goodbye to their grandparents and special friends and thanked them for visiting. Head of School Randall Dunn offered closing remarks, thanking the grandparents and special friends for visiting and emphasizing the important role they play in the lives of our students and parents/guardians.
