After a two-year hiatus, Northwestern’s Griffin’s Tale theater troupe returned to North Shore Country Day to entertain lower school students. For more than 30 years, the troupe has been inspired by short stories written by local children, which they then adapt into songs, skits, sketches and epic dramas. This year, they selected one story from each grade in the lower school and performed them. In doing so, they hope to encourage children in their creative abilities by showing them the importance of their imaginative work.
North Shore Country Day welcomed Anton Treuer as the 2022 Harold Hines Visiting Fellow on November 30. Dr. Treuer is a prolific author and Professor of Ojibwe at Bemidji State University in northern Minnesota.
More than 80 North Shore Country Day parents came to the Hall Library on October 7 for an exclusive discussion with parenting expert Becky Kennedy, who talked about some of the strategies featured in her new book, “Good Inside—A Guide to Becoming the Parent You Want to Be.”
North Shore Country Day honored its 2022 Francis R. Stanton ’27 recipient, author and educator Jonathan Strong ’62. The Stanton recognition is given each year during Homecoming weekend to an alum whose life work exemplifies the school’s motto, “Live and Serve.”
About 200 North Shore Country Day alumni and many more students, parents, faculty, staff, friends and neighbors returned to campus September 29 and October 1 for a packed Homecoming weekend. After several years of less-than-ideal weather, the blue skies, warm sunshine and moderate temperatures—as well as the return of some beloved traditions—made this year’s events feel extra festive.
