Neither students nor teachers got much sleep last night, yet today the energy on campus was off the charts. Upper School students headed off on field trips. The Middle Schoolers were so excited to meet their teachers that we had to remind them to walk in the hallways, and our youngest were once again greeted by our smiling faculty and our own Dixieland band. It did not take long for the butterflies in everyone's stomach to settle down and smiling faces to take over.
This warm feeling that is at the core of Country Day creates an environment where we truly can, as stated in our mission statement, "enable all children in our care to discover and to develop what is finest in themselves."
I am so excited for the new school year! I welcome all our new families and welcome back everyone else. This promises to be an incredible year of growth, and we are so grateful to you all for entrusting us with your most precious children.
Enjoy this short video that recaps our great day today!
