The Fastest in Connecticut

At the Junior Olympics race in Litchfield, Country School 3rd Grader Sam D. took 1st place in the 8 & Under division, defeating runners from as far away as Greenwich and Pomfret and smashing the course record that had stood since 2012. His time of 7:39 broke the old record by 15 seconds. Read More.

From Coach Wallack


Congratulations to the Girls' Varsity Soccer team on an outstanding season – undefeated after their 5-4 win over Ezra. The girls finished up with a 6-0 record. Be sure to stop by the DeFrancis Gym entranceway where we post the Woman of the Match each week. While highlighting some players, we all know victory isn't possible without a whole team coming together and contributing! Earning the honors last week was 7th Grader Kyra M. who matched up against a player twice her size and saved us many times!

I really enjoyed all the players so much from our 5th Graders right through to our leaders in 8th Grade. This group was tremendously opportunistic, played with feistiness and determination, and gave 100% each game.

Continuing to Reap the Gifts of the Auction


Eighth-Grader Alex S. served as Head of School last Friday. His duties included calling for a dress down day; running All School Meeting; convening with John Fixx, Karen Cunningham, Ted Tolis, Town Engineer Mike Ott, and LaRosa Construction Group; and assisting David Beecher in Development and Pam Glasser in the Admission Office. Always a big hit, serving as Head of School for the day is a perennial auction favorite.


Just in time for Thanksgiving - new Archimedes neckwear exclusively at The Roost! Stock up on Cyber Tuesday!
