On Thursday, Upper School students participated in the School’s annual Day of Caring and Leadership. During the day, each grade focused on something different.
Ninth and 10th graders heard a presentation from the Communities Healing Adolescent Depression and Suicide Coalition for Mental Health (CHADS) and participated in a follow-up reflection and activity. Then, they held honor council mock trials to learn more about the student-run judiciary process. Ninth graders also wrote complimentary letters of gratitude to coaches and members of faculty.
Juniors spent the day at Camp Wyman for team and leadership building exercises.
And finally, Seniors spent the day volunteering at various schools and organizations throughout the community—Crown Center for Senior Living, Dewey International Studies Elementary School, Harvey Kornblum Jewish Food Pantry, KidSmart, Rainbow Village, STL Foodbank and University City Children’s Center. In the afternoon, they watched and discussed the documentary film, It Happened Here.
