The Cup Stays Up!

Saint David's Red Team made Charles Osgood and our entire school proud yesterday.

With a final score of 1-0 White (loss) and 2-2 Red (tie), The Cup remains in its rightful position!

While Mr. Osgood was unable to attend yesterday's match against St. Bernard's, there were, as one might expect given the clandestine nature of his work, several reported sightings--a cloaked figure by the big maple, a tall man with an uncanny resemblance to Dr. King, only older, standing by the Bernard's goal late during the second half, and off course, the infamous distinguished gentleman sporting long-range binoculars spotted atop the small hillock located to the north east of our field. Unfortunately, none of these sightings could be independently confirmed by this author. Every time I looked in the direction of the call, I saw nothing.

Mr. Osgood had earlier urged the boys to "Play strong, play smart, and play fair! Our Cup hangs in the balance!"

The boys on both the Red and White teams played strong, smart and fair yesterday, demonstrating their notable skills in the sport as well as their good sportsmanship.

Well done, boys. Well done coaches. Well done, Saint David's!

An Evening With Lidia Bastianich

On Tuesday evening, Lidia Bastianich, award-winning chef, restaurateur, television host and author, visited Saint David's to speak to the Saint David's Alumni Parent community and current Eighth Grade.

Interviewed by Alumni Parent Dr. Joseph Haddad for our Alumni Parent Council Lecture, Lidia recounted her youth in Istria when the once Italian peninsula shifted to communist reign after World War II, her two years spent as a refugee in Trieste, and her experiences after her family immigrated to America when she was eleven years old.

The boys were fascinated with her discussion about her family's escape from Istria and her life as a refugee and immigrant. She expressed her everlasting gratitude to the people who provided assistance to her family in Trieste and when they first arrived in New York. "I can't talk enough about the goodness of the people who helped us," she said. "I am where I am because of them."

As a highly successful person with…

Boys on the Cape

Seventh graders and their teachers are enjoying their week of interdisciplinary learning on Cape Cod. 

The week's agenda includes a marine biology harbor cruise, the Great Island hike, sketching from nature, cycling, sessions with scientists from the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, and exploring the Cape Cod National Seashore.

Active learning outdoors, which involves exploration, discovery, and engagement aligns with how boys learn best. The experience augments what they learn in the classroom. It also strengthens the bonds between the boys and their classmates.

Building Connections Through MCC Partnership

The second year of our school's partnership with Manhattan Childrens Center, a school that provides treatment and education to children with autism and related disabilities, began last week. To prepare our second grade boys for their visits to MCC ,where they participate in a variety of activities with MCC students, educators from the school recently led a student orientation at Saint David's.

Our boys practiced communicating and interpreting images on a card, without using language. Afterward, they reflected on the challenges of communicating without words, as well as techniques that were useful for conveying their ideas.

The boys will make five visits to MCC this fall, and their MCC friends will visit Saint David's as well. This partnership helps our boys engage with children whose experience of the world differs from theirs, and helps to cultivate an appreciation for difference, as well as an understanding that despite differences, we are all essentially alike at our c…
