  • Summer Reading 2014

    Posted June 13, 2014

    Summer is a time for fun, relaxation and renewal. It is also a great time to discover new books and authors. Across the Lower, Middle and Upper Schools, Country Day students are expected to complete their required summer reading assignments and encouraged to find a new author or book that they love. We believe that reading for pleasure is an essential academic skill and this is why, every summer, we put a great deal of thought into our summer reading activities and suggestions.

  • What is "hands-on learning?" A Civil War Field Hospital

    Posted May 27, 2014

    Our 5th graders learned first-hand what it meant to be part of the Battle of Gettysburg today. On the edge of the battlefield they set up a working field hospital, a soldier was brought in and they learned how the soldier's leg would have been amputated during the Civil War. They carried the stretcher, saw the actual medical instruments and realized that there was no anesthetic for the procedure. A combination of history and science, it is a lesson that will stay with them.
