Olympic Day 2015

June 8, 2015
By Ms. Tashiro

The games are underway at Country Day as students participate in Olympic Day 2015! Every year, students in Kindergarten-Grade 7 represent countries from all over the world as they compete in athletic activities all over campus. Our enthusiastic parent volunteers organize events like soccer shoot-out, 60 meter dash, tug o' war, and many more. Students can earn points for their team not only during these events but also for sportsmanship and teamwork.

Thank you to our parent volunteers for all their hard work in making this day so special.

Gr. 2 in Old Chinatown

May 14, 2015
By Mrs. Hardy

Second graders had a fun filled day in Old Chinatown. We started off our trip by lighting incense at Thien Hau Temple, browsed through lantern lined shops filled with intricate trinkets and toys, enjoyed a delicious lunch at the Golden Dragon Restaurant and ended the day exploring the Chinese American Museum. We even got to practice some of our Mandarin along the way!

Education on Air with Google

May 8, 2015
By Mr. Sato

As the Director of Technology at RHCDS, part of my job is to keep our faculty and staff apprised of new opportunities offered through technology that might be of interest to them in the classroom. Today, I shared with them "Education on Air with Google," a two-day, live web conference that discusses the future of education and technology. The conference features panels and talks with contributors from across the globe from both the private and public sectors. Several members of Country Day's administration are watching the webcast throughout the day, and we have made the video stream available to teachers in the MPR during the different lunch periods. If you're interested, you'll find the program by following this link:

Oh, California!

April 23, 2015
By Ms. Tashiro

Fourth grade students showed off their musical talents during their performance, "Oh, California!" They sang their way through California's history, from the missions to the gold rush, celebrating all the rich culture in between. Every student had a speaking part, as they shared pieces of historical information with the audience, and they worked with Señora G and Mrs. Kimball to include songs in Spanish and Mandarin. Congratulations, Grade 4, on all your hard work and preparation!

Earth Hour at Country Day

By Mrs. Hardy

Second graders in Mrs. Hardy's class decided to participate in their own "Earth Hour" during class time. Students took their reading and writing outside for one hour to help conserve energy.  The worldwide "Earth Hour" event takes place this Saturday, March 28, from 8:30-9:30 P.M.  How will you participate?
