Every year just before Thanksgiving, our whole school takes a walk. Students, faculty, staff, and parents head out onto the neighborhood sidewalks to go visit our local fire station. The children bring colorful posters and cards they've made with heartwarming messages of thanks and admiration for the fire fighters. It's our way of showing them how much we appreciate what they do. We are thankful for their dedication and selflessness.Uploaded Feb 01, 2018

Each year, fourth graders begin preparing for the One Miler as soon as school begins in August. They train physically and mentally, learning how to breathe properly and how to pace themselves.
On the day of the race, the whole school turns out to cheer them on. Their kindergarten Cardinal Buddies wave the posters they've made and everyone is shouting, "Go for it! Run! You can do it!" Parents, teachers, and students line the edges of Bon Ton Road, high fiving the runners as they cross the finish line.
A JRDS 7th grader used his drone to capture this video during the school's annual Fall Family Picnic. He took the raw footage edited it, added music, and presented it to our Head of School, who was suitably impressed with the student's skills and initiative. It is really interesting to see the campus from a different view.Uploaded Sep 20, 2017
