Loosely translated from the Arabic, Zerda means "a festive occasion" or "a merry evening". Here at YCDS, it is our annual fall celebration of students’ talents in a relaxed, coffeehouse setting. Zerda is an opportunity for middle and upper school students to sing a song, play an instrument, perform a monologue, recite a poem, and enjoy sharing our many gifts with the community.
This week many students left the classroom for experiential learning opportunities.
At the beginning of every school year, each upper school grade goes on a retreat. The goals for the day (overnight in the case of the seniors) include having experiences with peers outside of the classroom, forging closer relationships with advisors and classmates, doing something active and fun, and enhancing the collaboration and community within the group. The retreats are designed with play and exploration in mind.
