Students Receive “Red Carpet” Welcome Back to School


Our school year kicked off on a positive note as we rolled out the red carpet to welcome students back to school this Thursday. It’s the second year in a row for this tradition of greeting our students on the first day of school in this fashion.

Students got star treatment from teachers and staff the moment they made their way on campus for the first day of school. The school’s preschool and prekindergarten teachers were there as well to greet their students.

The red carpet walkway was rolled out from the parking lot sidewalk, through the school’s gate and into the campus. Students were be surprised and had fun as they became the stars “walking the red carpet” as they entered school. Teachers and staff were – and will be throughout school – the students’ fans on both sides of the red carpet as they clapped, gave high-fives and cheered for each of the students.

Our red carpet welcome is a way to encourage our students and let them know how much we care about them and are excited for them to be with us at school. It also lets students know that teachers and staff will be their fans from day one of the school year. Our fun event also helps build our school unity.

The Arizona Daily Star also came out to take pictures of our red carpet event. Here is a link to the pictures they took:

TCDS Champions Walking the Red Carpet Featured in Newspaper


A great time was had by all, and we captured so many fantastic red-carpet moments with our students on the first day of school that we decided to send some of our photographs to the newspaper.

We submitted a few pictures of our “back to school” red carpet welcome to the Arizona Daily Star newspaper. This past Thursday, August 15, two of the pictures were featured in both the East Side and Foothills section of the Arizona Daily Star! 

Take a look below to see the pictures that were featured in the newspaper, as well as what was written about our red-carpet event.

TCDS Students Receive Star Treatment with a Red Carpet “Back to School” Welcome!


Tucson Country Day School teachers and staff rolled out the red carpet to welcome students back to school this Thursday, August 8. Students got the star treatment from the teachers and staff the moment they made their way on campus for the first day of school.

The red carpet walkway began at the parking lot sidewalk and went through the school’s gate and into the campus. Students were surprised as they welcomed the opportunity to become the stars “walking the red carpet” as they entered the school. Teachers and staff served as the fans on both sides of the red carpet as they high-fived, clapped and cheered for the students.

The red carpet welcome is a way to encourage our students and let them know how much we care about them and are excited for them to be with us at school. We hope it also lets students know that we teachers and staff will be their fans from day one of the school year. In addition, the red carpet welcome will help build our school unity. This exciting event kicked off our school year on a very positive note.
