China Trip Information Meeting

September 16, 2014
By Ms. Tashiro

Rolling Hills Country Day School is excited to introduce our first ever Study Abroad Program, which will take place in China in June 2015. Country Day students and their families are invited to join members of the faculty and administration on this trip of a lifetime. This customized tour of Beijing, Xi'an, and Shanghai was created in alignment with Country Day's educational goals of compassion, multicultural appreciation, and global awareness.

Students in all grades are invited as long as they are accompanied by a parent. Middle School students may travel without parents.

Please join us on the evening of Wednesday, September 17, at 6:00 P.M. in the MPR for more information about this unique educational and cultural opportunity. A representative from Worldstrides International, an industry leader in student travel and Country Day's partner in this new program, will provide detailed information about our journey.

Childcare will be available at no charge on the field and playground during the meeting.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Elizabeth Tashiro at or by calling (310) 377-4848, ext. 7005.

Introducing our newest 3-D printer!

September 16, 2014
By Mr. Baran

Last week, Rolling Hills Country Day School received the Cube Pro Duo, our newest, state-of-the-art printer. The Cube Pro Duo is much larger than our two other 3-D printers (it has a print space of about 10 x 10 inches) and can print in two different colors. It also has the ability to print 70-micron thin print, which is about 6 times finer than our other printers. The Cube Pro Duo can work with any software that can create an .STL file. Students in Kindergarten through Grade 8 will be introduced to the printer and its software over the course of the school year.  Students will learn how to use the software in the Lower School Science Lab as well as the Computer Lab.  Along with the printer, RHCDS received a 3-D scanner that can scan anything from as large as a human to as small as a golf ball.  Please come by the Lower School Science Lab and check out this newest addition to the school!

Talking Walls and Interactive Projectors

September 8, 2014
By Mr. Sato

Talking wall?  No, our walls don’t talk, but we do have three classrooms that have each received a new multitouch, interactive projector and edge to edge dry erase, projectable and magnetic material on the Teaching Wall.  The goal is to provide an interactive space, both digital and physical, where teachers and students can engage collaboratively together. Rolling Hills Country Day School is excited to be one of the first schools in the world to use this state-of-the-art technology from Epson. If you’re interested in seeing the new systems in action, please stop by Rooms 1, 14, or 21, or see me in the Library for a demo before or after school.

Welcome back!

Welcome to school!

Whether this is your first or ninth year at Rolling Hills Country Day School, we welcome you and your family to campus for another memorable school year. It has been truly heart-warming to see all the students' smiling faces (and their very white shoes!) as they reconnect with classmates and make new friends. The Kindergarten students have already taken their first Mandarin and Spanish classes, students in Grade 5 have learned how to serve as color guards for morning Flag Raising, and Grade 6 students are busy navigating the Middle School hallway and managing their new lockers. It's an exciting time of year, and we are thrilled to share these memories and many more to come with you and your family!

As always, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call the office at 310-377-4848.
