well-rounded students of scholarship, integrity and service.
First Day of School, 2020-21 School Year, Tuesday, Sept. 8th
Last week, ECDS celebrated the 15th Anniversary of the opening of its 12-acre, TK though 8th grade campus on Manchester Ave. The event featured music and prayers, flags and fun, and an awe inspiring release of doves.
TK through 8th grade students gathered in socially distanced “cohorts” on the playing field, and enjoyed popsicles and ice cream sandwiches afterward.
Students from all grade levels wrote prayers for themselves, their school, their country, and the world. One prayer was selected from each grade level to be read aloud and a student from each grade had the honor of releasing a dove. Students, staff, and parents watched attentively as 105 birds took flight, and marveled at the way the flock circled and assembled high overhead, awaiting every bird’s return to the “avian cohort” before heading home to their nearby roost.
Tuesday, Sept. 8th, was the First Day of On-campus Instruction for the 2020-21 school year. Students and teachers learned new health and safety protocols, and met new and returning friends. All seemed especially grateful they could spend a school day on campus with their teachers and classmates, and with minimal or no time spent in front of a computer screen.
Students took their first steps on the ECDS PK to 8th grade campus in order to meet their teachers for the 2020-21 school year. On Tuesday, September 8th, classes begin at Encinitas Country Day School’s beautiful 12-acre campus on Manchester Ave. in Encinitas. Extensive safety measures have been instituted to protect the health of students and staff members, while they enjoy the enriched learning environments at ECDS.
