Over the past few months, Middle School students in the “Animal Rescue Art” Elective have been creating amazing pieces of art for animals in need! Pieces include beautiful paintings, food dishes, collars, treat bags, and more. Next week, they will be delivering all of their projects to the Pinellas County Animal Services. Students are also asking CDS families to join in bringing holiday cheer to these animals by donating pet items, including treats and toys! Donations can be dropped off at the front office or to the art room.
Primary 1 & 2 students received an extra special surprise as they returned today from Thanksgiving break! As students arrived this morning, they found a brand new playground nestled in the oaks trees! The new play structure, made of 100% recycled plastic, allows for plenty of climbing, sliding, and exploring! Watch for other new playground additions coming soon campus wide!
On November 21st, Country Day School welcomed members of our community to present in classrooms for the Great American Teach-In. Parents and staff presented on careers, hobbies, and unique talents.

- Hiking the Appalachian Trail
- Belly Dancing
- Flying Airplanes
- Gypsywind New Grass Band
- Thanksgiving Cupcake Decorating
- Interactive Storytelling
- Baking Bread
- Law Enforcement
- Stories of a Writer
Thanks to all our guest speakers for an unforgettable day!
In the spirit of the giving, our Country Day School students collected canned foods to help people in need in our community. After collecting over 1,000 pounds of donations, our middle school students traveled to the St. Petersburg Free Clinic to sort the food items and learn about the clinic’s services. We are thankful for our community of students, parents, and faculty members! For more information on ways to help, please visit the St. Petersburg Free Clinic website.
