Go Live! a Big Hit at TCDS


Wow – what a wonderful evening our students, families, teachers and staff had this past Saturday at Tucson Country Day School’s Go Live! event!

Go Live! was an amazing evening full of performances from our Specialty classes and extra-curricular activities such as Garden Club, athletic teams, fiddlers and Jump Rope Club, artwork from every student displayed throughout the campus, games, cupcake decorating, photo booth fun from Making Memories Last, and a lot of delicious food.
