Summers at Country Day are magical. This week is all about the Magic School Bus. Campers made extraterrestrial headbands in art class and similarly themed projects in other specialty classes. To get into the spirit of the Magic School Bus, campers and counselors dressed up as aliens, astronauts, planets, and stars on Thursday.
Have you registered your child for Country Day Camp yet? There's lots to look forward to! Over the next 2 weeks, Country Day Camp will be focused on Disney's Finding Dory, with more dress up days, fun with Nemo, swimming twice daily, and one of Country Day Camp's famous "Big Shows."

During the last week before Spring Break the sixth graders took a field trip to the Getty Villa Museum. They had just finished their studies about ancient Greece (now they are studying ancient Rome). The students were led by museum docents to view pieces of art relating to Greek Mythology. Afterwards, they had time to tour the museum and gardens before heading back to school. It was a great day!!

After spending the last few months learning about Brazil and the Amazon Rain Forest, the first grade was lucky enough to experience Brazilian culture first-hand. We had lunch at Pampas Grill, where we sampled traditional Brazilian food. Then we traveled to the Brasil Brasil Cultural Center to learn Capoeira. Capoeira is a martial art form disguised as a dance. We not only learned more about the Brazilian culture, we had a blast doing it!!
