CDS Students Give Back!
A group of 8th Grade students volunteered their time and effort to spruce up the courtyard next to the Roy Center. The students showed great pride in their school as they worked toward restoring this somewhat neglected area. They organized a team and completed their goal!

The grand total was 1,022 lbs of food for Loaves and Fishes Food Pantry, which will help feed families in need in the communities of Ayer, Devens, Groton, Harvard, Littleton and Shirley.
Country Day School's Middle School Dance Supports Animals
On Friday, October 25th, Country Day School had their first middle school dance of the school year. While the admission fee typically goes toward the graduation celebration costs for the current 8th grade class, this year, the 13 and 14 year-olds wanted to make a difference. Together with their Math teacher, Mrs. Maguire, they decided to support the first grade community service project at Nevins Farm Adoption Center in Methuen. They agreed that anyone who brought in a pet food/supply donation to the dance would receive a discounted admission. Their efforts were rewarded with the donation of four large boxes of pet supplies for the service project of their first grade "buddies".
