Wildcat Weekend is a festive occasion during which the entire Rye Country Day community comes together to cheer on the Wildcats. Whether for the Fun Run, a varsity game, Fall Fair, or the Alumni Making a Difference Panel, we very much hope to see you on campus this Saturday.
Last week, Middle School students in Grades 5-8 embarked on a new, yearlong, service-learning project in their homeroom and advisory groups. With guidance and support from the Office of Public Purpose and Middle School Public Purpose Coordinators Jessica Kaplan and Tim Silverman, homeroom groups will work throughout the year on student-driven projects in the community (RCDS, the local community, or beyond) related to three grade-level themes, which were selected based on student responses about issues in the community that matter to them. This year, the grade-level themes are animals (fifth grade), water (sixth grade), and hunger, homelessness, and poverty (seventh and eighth grades). Read more on Wildcat World.
