Monarch Garden

In a thrilling update, recently we have spotted regular, daily monarch activity. Aleitha Burns and her 7th graders confirmed multiple monarch caterpillars clinging to leaves in our milkweed "forest," and a tent has been added to the garden to protect the activity.

In the Spotlight—Mock Trial

This summer, Grace Zhao ‘24 was a semi-finalist in a competitive, national one-on-one Gladiator Mock Trial Tournament. The winner is hailed as the nation's best “mock trialer.” Just to get there as one of the thirty six students, out of the hundreds of applicants, is quite an honor.

Lower School Teacher Training for a Writing Revolution

Country Day teachers are lifelong learners who are always striving to improve their teaching. Many Lower School faculty members spent summer time learning more about thoughtful, systematic writing instruction by taking The Writing Revolution training and will be adjusting their writing instruction and grade-level curriculum maps accordingly.
