TCDS Special Assembly Featured on KGUN9 News


Tucson Country Day School students – in preschool all the way through eighth grade – were treated to a wonderful assembly Friday. Special guest speaker Charles Nderitu came all the way from Africa to speak to our students, who are spreading kindness clear across the world.

Our students have been working on curriculum-based projects to send to students in Kibera, which is in Nairobi, Africa. Charles brought pen pal letters that children in Kibera wrote for TCDS students. Many students will continue to be pen pals with the children in Kibera during the school year.

It was so special that KGUN9 News came to take video, and a great story aired on the station’s evening news. 

Here is a link to the story:
