Thank you to everyone who came out for our 50th Anniversary Celebration – we had a great turnout during this Open House, Reunion and STEAM Fair!
It was an absolutely beautiful day to be outside on our school’s 10-acre campus playing with giant volleyballs and slingshots; watching our Band, Choir and Drama Club perform; checking out the fabulous artwork; taking part in multiple arts, science, technology and 50th-related activities; and so much more!
It was amazing to mingle with our current Champions, alumni Champions and guest Champions! Alumni from the FIRST graduating class at TCDS all the way to future young students turned out for the 50th Celebration. Thank you! It was an incredible day for all!
Thank you Ms. Wendy for capturing these great moments on camera.

STEM Demonstrations and great make-and-take activities
We had wonderful Science Fair projects!
Second through eighth grade students have been putting their creative skills on paper and creating amazing art work! Mrs. Phelps and Ms. Paradis worked with volunteers to display artwork in the MPR for an incredible Art Show!
Several middle school students spent part of their summer and a lot of time this school years constructing this amazing 3-D model of our school! WOW – very impressive!
“Art in the Dark”
Preschool and Prekindergarten teacher Ms. S hosted “Art in the Dark” – a glow in the dark, shadowy and fun STEAM event. Ms. S had a black light and students painted and drew pictures with fluorescent colors. The fluorescent light picks up the UV rays, therefore allowing artwork to glow in the dark!
On the other side of the classroom, kids and adults got to do some hands-on work with the light blox set. The light blox are colored flashlights that show red, green and blue, and they mix to make new colors.
Next up, attendees had fun at another center playing with shadows and distance. Families got to use lenses that they could bend the light with and change the direction of where to shine the light.
Orchestra, Band, Choirs and Drama Club took turns performing captivating performances.
Once again, thank you to all of our TCDS students, families, teachers, staff, alumni Champions and guest Champions for making Tucson Country Day School’s 50th Celebration incredible for everyone!

Let the extreme counselor makeovers
Campers got to make over their counselors however they wanted. From makeup and face paint to costumes and veils, we sure have very creative campers. Once made up, their counselors definitely turned heads. The kids were then treated to a red carpet runway show, where the counselors debuted their new looks for all to see.
This week was GO Green week!
Check out our video of Week 6 at Camp Adventure. Then scroll down the page to read about what we’ve been up to and to see more pictures of us at Camp!
Week six at Camp Adventure was all about going green. Campers made art from a variety of recyclable items and had a great time participating in swimming, archery, dance, music and games all this week. We were treated to a very informative and slithery reptile show. Campers ended their Green Week with an exciting trash launch! Yes, you heard that right. We launched different items to see which would travel the farthest. We did clean all the trash up and recycle it when we were done with this fun activity.
