Third grade students extended their knowledge of immigration by organizing and hosting a Naturalization Ceremony on campus. Representatives from Senator Sherrod Brown’s Office, Senator Rob Portman’s Office, Daughters of the American Revolution, Sons of the American Revolution, the American Red Cross, and more also participated in this special day. This is what CCDX Week is all about - making lifelong memories and learning about moments bigger than us. 50 applicants from all over became citizens in the Carey Family Amphitheater as students, staff, and faculty watched and cheered.
We Built This City
First grade students worked together to create a model city. Using teamwork and creativity, classes worked together to create small neighborhoods that they combined to create a bigger collaborative city. Using boxes, glue, paint, a visit or two to the makerspace, and anything else they could get their hands on, their cities came to life.
Build a Canoe
Seventh and eighth grade students worked together to build a handmade canoe under the guidance of the Camping & Education Foundation. From making the frame to coating the paddle, are all part of the fun! The students got to see their hard work pay off with a field trip to Otto Armleder Park on the Little Miami River.
Fifth and sixth grade students designed and created their own “withy” lantern made from willow branches and tissue paper complete with a with a warm glow from LED lights nestled inside. Students also explored mask making and other creative ways to use willow branches in every day art.
Wilderness and Remote First Aid
Designed for wilderness enthusiasts, this Upper School course gave students the chance to learn advanced wilderness skills like triaging injuries, first aid training, and what to do in an emergency when out in the wild.
Build a Motion Capture System
Taught by Terre Virzi '22, a group of students built, configured, installed, and documented an open source motion capture system. Using spare parts, the team built a PC, developed code, installed and deployed the system in three days tops. The results are priceless, see for yourself!
