The North Shore Country Day middle school Science Olympiad team was formed 25 years ago. Every year they have qualified and competed at the state finals under the direction of Head Coach Lee Block along with many volunteer coaches. The state finals were held in April at the University of Illinois but teams participated virtually. Some 44 teams qualified for the state finals and NSCD finished 17th overall. Additionally, they earned a 2nd place medal in Bridge Building (Alexander Roy '27 and Daniel Schanzenbach '27) and a 4th place medal in Experimental Design (Paige Highlander '26, Alexander Roy '27 and Eli Gallaga '28).
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.
