In an ongoing partnership with AmeriCares, New Canaan Country School students and teachers gathered as a community on April 3 for a “kitting” event, assembling family hygiene kits which will replenish stocks used during Typhoon Haiyan and other recent emergencies.
New Canaan Country School will lead a cohort of 22 independent school educators from across the country on a trip to France and Finland March 29-April 5 to meet with administrators of The Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA), which evaluates global education systems, and to visit some of the highest-performing school systems in the world as measured by PISA.
The Alumni Council and Parent Association Mothers-at-WorkCommittee hosted “Women Returning to Work” featuring Kathryn Sollmann, a Huffington Post contributor, author of the award-winning 9 Lives for Women blog, and a work + life expert who empowers women to find work that fits all ages and stages on Tuesday, March 4.
Every year, the entire Country School community holds a friendly competition to reduce its carbon footprint. This year, the Northern Alliance – comprised of Lower School, Thacher Building and Grace House – won the annual Green Cup Challenge. As a reward, they earned a dress down day and a lunch menu of their choice—breakfast for lunch.
