  • Alumni Spotlight :: Malik Collins Spady, 1988

    “I was surrounded by education on one side of my family, and by civil rights (leaders) on the other... With me, that positive support had a huge impact. I think I overachieved, not that I’m a superhero.” Thank you, Malik Collins Spady, 1988, for carrying forward that support to positively impact our community! Check out the full story here!

  • Senior Dylan Simmons Signs with Arkansas Tech to Play Football

    Country Day senior Dylan Simmons has officially signed to play football at Arkansas Tech University in Russellville, Arkansas, starting Fall 2021. Dylan joined the Country Day community in 2017 and has excelled in academics and athletics. Over the last four years, Dylan has made 1st Team All-District in baseball and football all while serving as a student ambassador, co-chair of the Black Student Union (BSU), and as a member of the Green Club. However, what many of his coaches and teammates attest to more than his skill and talent, are his strength of character and ability to lead.

  • Wondrous Writers in 1st and 2nd Grade

    The Room One Wondrous Writers are ending their narrative writing unit. They have studied examples of writers of good literature and have become better writers by emulating them. They have learned to plan a story, follow story structure (characters, setting, events, problem/wish, and solution), to use vivid words for description, to develop interesting characters, and to revise and edit. They follow the Writing Workshop method where short mini-lessons are taught by the teacher and a demonstration is given; the students then apply the skill. Room One is just full of storytellers.
